Leave it to Erwin C. Deitrich (producer of a dozen Jess Franco 70's sleaze flix, and I don't mean that in a bad way) to re-invent Nazisploitation by offering us an upbeat comedy version of an atrocious chapter in wartime history. In this 1973 cheesecake, the Nazis are of the Sargeant Schultz variety as they take on the Russians near the front. The frauleins are all cute Eurobabes who act like they're members of a select sorority at a summer camp or glee club, eager to 'please' anything or anyone for the Nazi Party, and I do mean party. They're all so happy, upbeat and obliging it's hysterical. It's like 'Springtime For Hitler' all over again. What makes it different is that there is no torture, rape, shower scenes, coersion or abhorent conditions here, all of the cliches are done away with - it's like 'Hogan's Heroes' with abundant nudity. One of my favorite lines (and their were a few) spoken by one of the babes to another, "If worse comes to worst, spread your legs, the regime always needs more soldiers". Cheezy, breezy and super sleazy, these frauleins spend more time in birthday suits than in uniform, and that 'suits' me fine...

I'll go along with Anthony's 4-star review, with these additions:
Video quality is very good, crisp and clear. No burnt out highlights, no blocked shadows. This is not a cheap burn. Sound quality is decent, easy to understand.
What surprised me about this film was the accuracy of the details. The Russian equipment was the genuine stuff, not repainted US Army surplus tanks and such. Real T-34s, PPsh submachineguns, etcetera. Same with the German equipment- MG 42s and 38s, MP 40s, antiarcraft guns- all real. Pity we didn't get to see any German armor. I would have loved to see a working MKIV, V or VI...
Anyway, this movie is well worth buying.
All of those beautiful woman in full-frontal nudity are just a bonus.
And it is funny in many places.

[Frauleins in Uniform - 1973] Leave it to Erwin C. Deitrich (producer of a dozen Jess Franco 70's sleaze flix, and I don't mean that in a bad way) to re-invent Nazisploitation by offering us an upbeat comedy version of an atrocious chapter in wartime history. In this 1973 cheesecake, the Nazis are of the Sargeant Schultz variety as they take on the Russians near the front. The frauleins are all cute Eurobabes who act like they're members of a select sorority at a summer camp or glee club, eager to 'please' anything or anyone for the Nazi Party, and I do mean party. They're all so happy, upbeat and obliging it's hysterical. It's like 'Springtime For Hitler' all over again.

What makes it different is that there is no torture, forced sexual liasons, shower scenes, coersion or abhorent conditions here, all of the typical cliches prevalent in Italian-made nazi flicks are done away with - it's like 'Hogan's Heroes' with abundant nudity. One of my favorite lines (and their were a few) spoken by one of the babes to another, "If worse comes to worst, spread your legs, the regime always needs more soldiers". Is this a good flick? Certainly not. Is it a lot of fun for its target audience? You betcha. Cheezy, breezy and super sleazy, these frauleins spend more time in birthday suits than in uniform, and that 'suits' me fine...

This was an obvious rip-off and update of the classic German film from the Weimar republic days "Mädchen in uniform" ("Girls in Uniform") from 1931, except here the frauleins are mostly out of their uniforms! As one reviewer said it best "Eine armee gretchen" AKA ("She Devils of the SS", "Frauleins in Uniform") from 1973, was an early take on the nazisploitation films to come (which were mostly made in Italy). If you can ignore the offensive elements this sort of film may have for some people, it's actually pure campy lunacy! These frauleins were almost always nude, and thankfully very shapely and not on the skinny side! The story (like there was one), sort of got serious towards the end, but still only slightly. This film and thousands more like it, I think could only have been made in the 70's. I would not be surprised if the Federal Republic of Germany (the West German economy was booming at the time), financed this film as a way to laugh at their past (it didn't cost much either way, although it might have been made in Switzerland). Anyway, you will laugh at the cartoonish voices, and the crazy lines these chicks had to deliver (I wish we had the original German Language version)! Enjoy it for the bountiful and lovely Teutonic beauties on display. The DVD picture quality by Sinister Cinema was very good. NTSC NR 96 mins. Danke Vielmals!

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero

Really funny throw back to early cinema exploitation. If your looking for soft core and boobs for a boring afternoon killer, then this is for you. For what they tried to do it wasn't bad for a B flick back in the day but don't expect to be inspired unless it's by voluptuous German women.

Did not expect much. T&A flic. Pretty girls overacting. Typical for such. Production and quality of original film quite good. DVD virtually unwatchable. I've not a high end player, but it would be nice if the video would play better than broadcast TV in a hailstorm. I don't leave reviews typically, but this product deserved some criticism.

FRAULEINS IN UNIFORM (aka: SHE DEVILS OF THE SS) is the most accurate portrayal of WWII Nazi-Germany since ILSA: SHE-WOLF OF THE SS! It's a quasi-documentary about those brave fighting women of the third Reich, able to disrobe for action in seconds! Who knew that war was so much fun? Filmed in the blissful year of 1973, it's difficult to imagine such a movie being made today...

If you liked Ilsa, She wolf of the SS, you'll like this too ! It's about as cheesy as it gets, lotsa nude young ladies dancing about in the buff, ready to take it off to honor Adolph's men in uniform. Very tongue in check and not very bloody. Campy to the max. Forget moral messages here. Its basically just naughty nude fun dressed in ww2 German Uniforms. Nazploitation. Not XXX, so don't expect anyone here really doing the nasty, just simulation of the dirty deed. Enjoy the cheese !

Oh la! La! and Hot cha cha! I really love these historical flicks and the accuracy of this film is dead on! It's not well known among historians that German Women spent most of their time running about the landscape naked and schtupping every German lad they could. This movie shows the truth brother! The dialogue is mesmerizing as Col Von Whoever guides one his female charges into a hard fighting private's bed with crisp lines like "Do him! He's pretty cool!" And, "he Furher expects you raise a little Heil! So get balling!" Pardon my French. I don't know who any of these lovely actresses are but each one has two wonderful assets fully on display! Such talents ought not to be hidden! What should be hidden perhaps are some 70s era butts and some, shall we say foliage? Some wild foliage better left to no man's land.
This movie is wrong in so many ways but hey! The title pretty much tells you "The Bridge Over the River Kwai" it ain't.
