The Mad Bomberg (German:Der tolle Bomberg) is a 1923 novel by the German writer Josef Winckler. It is loosely based on the legendary exploits of a real-life aristocrat Gisbert von Romberg (1839-1897). The novel has been adapted into films on two occasions. The first was a 1932 film The Mad Bomberg directed by Georg Asagaroff. The second The Mad Bomberg (1957) was a vehicle for the actor Hans Albers, which attempted to recreate the success of his 1943 film Münchhausen.
