Wer zuletzt lacht, lacht am besten

Feature Film, DE 1971, 35mm, 87 min, dOV

Schlosshotel Seefels is on the verge of bankruptcy. In a desperate act, owner Frobenius proclaims his hotel to be “family-friendly” — which drives away the regulars. A sale to the Mertens hotel chain seems inevitable. But Frobenius concocts a plan together with his niece Susanne: they want to present the expectant buyer with a flourishing business to inflate the price. Only problem, through a mix-up, the wrong person has the pleasure of this treatment.
