In West Berlin during the Cold War, a Coca-Cola executive is given the task of taking care of his boss' socialite daughter.
When asked in 1974 why he made a film about Coca Cola, Billy Wilder responded, "I just think Coca-Cola to be funny. And when I drink it, it seems even funnier to me."
Das ist eine Kuckucksuhr!
In the shots from the west side of the Brandenburg Gate, a sign is shown reading: "ACHTUNG! YOU ARE NOW LEAVING WEST BERLIN." No such sign, in mixed German and English, was ever posted in Berlin. The signs advising that one was leaving or entering one of the four sectors of the divided city were all written in four languages: German, English, French and Russian. Apart from its factual inaccuracy, it would make no sense to post a sign written partially in one language and partially in another.
