With "Women to Golden Hill", Kirsten Heiberg had involved herself in the Nazi propaganda. This would in many ways become her choice in life - and fate. She continued in the same fashion with her next film, "Alarm auf Station III". This is, as it seems at first glance,  a crime movie. But if you take a closer look, you will see that it is much more: It is a film that prepares the German population for war. In the film, the customs officers are throughout the film acting in uniform, they greet each other militarily and march to their jobs under military command. Even in their home, the children march with swords on their shoulders, and the adults greet them with "March in the baracks!" Kirsten Heiberg contributes with a song: "I need a man, but not made of marzipan!" The message to German men was this: Flirt is not enough, you need to show military strengh and potency!
