On July 2nd 1930, the Censors (Filmprüfstelle Berlin) disallow this film  for viewing (document:  B.19086).

Appealed, this decision is  upheld on July 14th 1930 by the Chief Censors (Oberprüfstelle). The reason cited is: "The presentation of a brothel street with half naked women hanging out of all the windows attempting to solicit a marine officer is capable of overwhelming the fantasy of young people" (document: O.730; see document).

Finally, on August 19th 1930, the Censors (Filmprüfstelle)  approve the film for projection (B26612, Jf).

The premier showing takes place on August 25th 1930.

It depicts a comedy based on mistaken identity in a society setting.
