Film Extras -  1955

"A maturity examination (Reifeprufung) in the summer holidays, but only in film. However, this time the teachers and students are real.  Only the 'Principal,' Matthias Wiemann, is an actor. (A scene from the Concordia film "Maturing Youth" in which Göttinger teachers helped.)"

College students on a visit to Göttingen were recruited as extras for a film 'Reifende Jugend' (Maturing Youth) being made in the area - they are all at the back towards the right-hand side. After some research we have found out that filming was carried out at the Brother Grimm school.  The plot revolves around 'the erotic triangular relationship between a secondary school teacher, a pupil and a school fellow.'

"The boys stayed at a school hostel called Waldheim Der Voigtschule and ... we went over the channel on the British Railways SS Duke of York. Immediately behind the standing actress in open neck shirt is Brian Newman. Front row, standing to the left of actress: Dave Turner, NK, NK, William Wiskin, Terrance Riches." - Dave Turner
