Lange Zeit galten sie als "Illusionskino", altbacken, kitschig und einfaeltig: die Filme aus der Adenauer-Aera. Aber Mode und Musik haben die 50er und 60er Jahre bereits wiederentdeckt. Und weil der seitliche Abstand einen notstalgisch-liebevollen Blick zurueck in die goldene Zeit des Wirtschaftswunders erlaubt, stehen die leichten Komoedien, die traenenreichen Ehedramen und die bunten Heimat- und Kostuemschinken ploetzlich wieder hoch im Kurs. Papas Kino ist wieder in. Fuer die Jungen gibt es vieles zu entdecken. Und die Aelteren unter den Videofans duerfen in Erinnerungen schwalgen an die Zeit ihrer Jugend, als wenigstens im Film die Welt noch in Ordnung war. Jedenfalls zogen diese Filme die Zuschauer scharenweise ins Kino. Damals kannten auch deutsche Leinwandstars noch Glanz und Glamour.
