Hans Albers, who was playing the lead in this movie, was originally a theater actor but after the Nazis came to power he wasn't playing at the theater until 1945 to avoid the influence from the Nazis. He was one of Joseph Goebbels' favorite actor even if he hated the Nazis and avoided being seen with them or avoided receiving awards from a Nazi politician. See more
On the journey to Sansibar Carl Peters was not only with Joachim Count von Pfeil and his friend Karl Ludwig Jühlke but also with the businessman August Otto. However he wasn't even mentioned or portrayed in the movie. Therefore there were four Germans in Africa and not three as the British characters mentioned in the movie. However Otto died during the journey from a disease. See more
