Fanfares of Love (German: Fanfaren der Liebe) is a 1951 West German comedy film directed by Kurt Hoffmann and starring Dieter Borsche, Georg Thomalla and Inge Egger. It is a remake of the 1935 French film Fanfare of Love. It was a major hit and in 1953 a sequel Fanfare of Marriage was released, showing the further adventures of the main characters.

The story was based on a screenplay written by Robert Thoeren while working in the Weimar Republic in the early 1930s. After emigrating to Paris following the Nazi takeover of power, it was developed into a French film directed by Richard Pottier.

It was shot at the Bavaria Studios in Munich with sets designed by the art director Franz Bi. Location filming also took place at Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps.

Hollywood remake

The film was remade in Hollywood in 1959 by Billy Wilder as Some Like It Hot. Thoeren screened the 1951 German film for Wilder, who secured the remake rights. In contrast to the contemporary setting of the German film, Wilder shifted the action back to the 1920s. He later tried to downplay the extent to which he was influenced by the original, describing it as "a very low budget, very third-class German picture".[1]

In the German film synchronisation of Some Like It Hot, Georg Thomalla served as the voice for Jack Lemmon in his role as the second musician - exactly the role which Thomalla played eight years earlier in this film.


Two struggling male musicians, unable to get any work, dress as women in order to get work in an all-female band.
