Curious how after the knowledge of Sirk's films, Fassbinder has been committed to making his own versions of that German filmmaker chromatic melodramas, and that in his final film, back to Europe, as with the previous one, "Silvesternacht", Sirk, here directly with Fassbinder as actor, has approached the terminal theatrical romanticism that characterized some of the great films of this filmmaker. A beautiful film.
There are a couple of errors. Douglas Sirk wrote and directed 'Bourbon Street Blues'. Noone else co-directed or co-wrote. Michael Breining is not in the cast. He assisted in the sound dept. In addition Richard Wagner, at the time a young writer, has a small role. For those who are interested, there is also a film by Gustavo Graef-Marino, called 'Filmarbeit mit Douglas Sirk', documenting the shoot.
