It’s official. If I die, one line of my obituary will read "In 2005, Hammel unwittingly created an online forum for people who love the 1970s German child star Heintje. This turned out to be his most significant contribution to public discourse."
No other post has gathered such a consistent and varied stream of worldwide comments as my ruminations (rather rude ones, I might add) on Heintje.
In a desperate bid for more website hits, and to help Judith the Heintje fan, let me promote the latest Heintje comment to the main page of this blog.
Hi Heintje fans
Heintje cds can be found on www.amazon.co.uk.
I have been trying to find a dvd of his film "Ich sing ein lied fur dich" which I saw at the cinema in Hong Kong in 1970.
Does anybody know where I can find one?
Go visit the post to find Judith’s email, and help her re-live her fond memories.
One question: What on earth was a Heintje movie doing playing in Hong Kong?
