Homesick for St. Pauli

Homesick for St. Pauli (German: Heimweh nach St. Pauli) is a 1963 German drama film directed by Werner Jacobs and starring Freddy Quinn, Josef Albrecht and Ullrich Haupt.[1] Heinz Pehlke was the cinematographer.[2] It was based on a musical by Lotar Olias and Gustav Kampendonk.

A German singer who has enjoyed massive success in the United States, returns to his hometown, the St. Pauli district of Hamburg.

The film was one of the many foreign films that Jayne Mansfield made in the 1960s, after becoming a star in the late 1950s in films like: The Girl Can't Help It (1956) and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).

The film was shot in Hamburg in mid-1963.[3]
