Summary

Unfinished film.

Note

Only dress rehearsals of the scenes were shot, initially with Stanislav Neumann in the role of Sharp-Eyes. The production company had endless problems with the German authorities which feared the film might be subversively allegorical, and finally it was withdrawn from the production plan.
