Summary

Comedy about a father-son conflict set in a family business.

Several generations of Mullers are fighting each other in this complex story about a family business whose main branch is about to go belly-up. De vier Mullers is the Dutch version of an Austrian comedy titled Alles für die Firma (1935) and is a so-called 'simultaneous production', meaning that is was shot both in Dutch and German in the Schönbrunn studios in Vienna but with different actors.

The role of the young Otto Mulder is played by the not uncontroversial Johan Heesters whose career took off in Germany during the 1930s and continued throughout the Second World War. Born in 1903, Heesters is one of the world's oldest performing artist.
