Lys Assia's "O Mein Papa" (Paul Burkard) was written for the 1939 Swiss musical "Der Schwarze Hecht" (The Black Pike). In 1954 the musical became the film "Feuerwerk" (Fireworks) starring Lilli Palmer.

"The Man With the Golden Trumpet" Eddie Calvert topped the U.K. chart and peaked at number ten in the U.S. with his 1954 instrumental. The composer's name was misspelled "Oh, Mein Papa" (Burchart).

Eddie Fisher with Hugo Winterhalter's Orchestra had the smash vocal hit the same year as "Oh! My Papa" (Sexton - Turner - Burkhard) when the song topped the American charts. Eddie was married to Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor, Connie Stevens and others at different times of course.
