Good German Fun of 1961
If you are interested in old films (German films, in this case), with many well-known actors/singers of the time (Lil Babs, Lolita, Gus Backus), together with atmospheric ingredients and details, then 'Isola Bella' is a right choice for you. It's a light-weight colourful love-comedy, a kind of time-style-capsule without any aspects of sorrow, very entertaining under the above-mentioned condition.
Most of the Players are long forgotten. Paul Hubschmid, Harald Juhnke (and perhaps Willy Fritsch) may still be known, in Germany, that is.
Willy Fritsch was a famous German Filmstar during the years 1920 till 1960, roughly. He died in 1973, according to his imdb-biography, BUT....
.... there's A SLIGHT MiISTAKE in his imdb-biography: Among the films for which he should be known there is included 'Inglorious Basterds' by Quentin Tarantino (2009). If so, he must have been engaged out of his grave in the famous cemetery of Hamburg-Ohlsdorf, 36 years after he was buried there.
