1* AdaptationOverdosed: Three films and since 2004, a musical.* DawsonCasting:** Heinz Rühmann was 41 years old when he played a [[UsefulNotes/GermanEducationSystem Gymnasium]] student (who'd be 18 or 19 years old). Of course, the character ''is'' supposed to be older and just playing a younger character.** Played straight with most actors of actual student characters: Hans Richter was 24, Rudi Schippel 21, Maria Litto 24, Karin Himboldt 23 (playing 17-year-old Eva), and the most JustForFun/{{egregious}} case would be Clemens Hasse who was ''35''.** Averted with Georg-Michael Wagner, who was 19.* RealitySubtext: Many scenes were made again and again, until they were perfect. (Another reason this movie is considered so good.) The reason? The film was made during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The actors who played the other students would've had to join the ''[[UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Wehrmacht]]'', which could have meant a good chance to die. That's why the makers tried to extend the production as long as possible. Some actors were still conscripted and died on the fronts.* TroubledProduction: The film was made in 1943/1944, right during World War II. In fact, the crew tried to spend as much time as possible making the movie, as the alternative (being conscripted and sent to the fronts) would have been unpleasant.----
