In 1966, a 91 minute German-speaking radio program adapted from the film was produced to be aired in West Germany and Austria. It was directed by Rudolf Noelte.
Are you all right? I have no excuse. It's all our fault. My wife was driving. Are you all right?
It has been included as a continuity error that Marianne says she is going to go swimming at the old house, but when she returns her hair does not appear to be wet. This is not a continuity error, because when the film was shot in the late 1950s, and for at least a decade afterwards, at least in the Nordic countries women gathered their hair up and covered it with a special swimming cap to protect their hair from becoming wet. Some women who had grown up during those times used swimming caps as late as the 1980s, because they had grown up with the custom, and a swimming cap was to them just as integral part of swimming attire as a swimming suit.
