This routine drama by Fran├žois Villiers is about a father coming to grips with the fact that he has a young son. Pierre (Pierre Mondy) is an ordinary laborer but when he receives word that and former lover in Corsica is dying -- and that she bore him a son he never knew about -- Pierre quickly heads to the island. After he arrives he is in strict denial but then begins very slowly to relent. He travels around Corsica looking for someone who might adopt his nine-year-old son Pietro (Marietto) in order to train him at some job or another. Pierre's objective at the moment is to get back home as soon as he can. ~Schneewittchen und die sieben Gaukler (Hoffmann, Kurt) [109074] aka: Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge aka: Snow White and the Seven Jugglers This musical-comedy by Kurt Hoffmann is meant to be a take-off on the fairy tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but may prove the point that changing fairy tales into reality works better the other way around. Dr. Anita Rossi (Caterina Valente) travels to a dying resort hotel in the Swiss mountains with plans to resuscitate the venture. She is an engineer with expertise in heating -- ideal for the Swiss mountains -- and some business savvy. By way of personnel (the originals have quit for non-payment of salaries) she hires seven circus jugglers to act as waiters, busboys, bellhops, and other staff. Lo and behold, everything starts to work out and what is even better, Norbert (Walter Lang) the owner of the hotel, is a definite Prince Charming. Then in steps a wicked stripper to scuttle the budding romance.
