In the first of a trilogy of movies about Elisabeth "Sissi" of Austria, the young vibrant princess catches the eye of her sister's fiancé, Emperor Franz Josef.
The melody, which is played, while the steam boat with Princess Sissi is arriving, is the Austrian Emperor's Hymn ("Österreichische Kaiserhymne") composed by Josef Haydn (1796). It became the melody for the poem "Song of the Germans" ("Lied der Deutschen"), written by August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben (1841). From 1952 on, the 3rd verse and the melody of the Emperor's Hymn became the German National Anthem.
Kaiser Franz Joseph:
What? Miss even brought a zither along?
Sissi: Yes. Papa even took it all the way to Egypt up the Cheops Pyramid.
Kaiser Franz Joseph: Papili has been to Egypt?
Sissi: Suddenly something inside makes him get up and go. I think I'll be just like him one day.
Colonel Böckl is watching Sissi climbing out of a window of her bedroom where she has been locked just before by her mother and now wants to get and and go fishing. Böckl is hiding behind a bush and several scenes show him with the town in the background. In one scene for a very short moment you can clearly see a car passing by far between two houses.
