The Mad Bomberg (German: Der tolle Bomberg) is a 1957 West Germany comedy film directed by Rolf Thiele and starring Hans Albers, Marion Michael and Harald Juhnke. It was shot at the Göttingen Studios with sets designed by the art directors Gabriel Pellon and Peter Röhrig. The film is an adaptation of the 1923 novel of the same title by Josef Winckler which was based on a real historical Westphalian aristocrat of the nineteenth century. The film was conceived partly as an attempt to replicate the success of Albers' hit film Münchhausen (1943).[1]
