About Monte-Carlo Madness

The stamp shows the Swedish poster for the German film Bomloen auf Monte Carlo (Monte Carlo Madness), directed by Hanns Schwarz. This musical comedy, which was released in 1931, is the adaptation of a novel by Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen. It tells the story of the captain of a boat flying the flag of the Kingdom of Pontenero who goes to Monte-Carlo to meet the local Consul and demand his wages and those of his crew. The Queen of Pontenero, who has stowed away on board, manipulates the captain by making him gamble at the casino.
