Ally Lamaj has extolled the virtues of this film to me for years. Apparently the only copy in existence is owned by Dremmler’s widow and who knows if she’s still alive. If it is ever found we can only hope it will pop up on Wild East’s schedule of releases. With this gringo’s luck it will be released by my friend Ulrich Bruckner in a German language version only with no sub-titles.

  1. Is this real? There is not one hit for Günther Dremmler on google, and even filmportal.de, co-owned by the German Film Institue, doesn't know him.

  2. You took the words right out of my mouth.... It's unlikely that the film is, if existing at all, something else than a amateur production made on substandard film and never shown in public.
