Source Notes

According to a newspaper article quoted by forum user Sandra, his birth time is 14:00 (2 pm). His birth year is a matter of dispute. In his PhD thesis (Berlin, 1965) he gives 12 November 1939 as his date of birth.

Later, when he was going towards 70, he claimed, that he had made himself older by three years to get a job as film director when he was still very young, and that he is really only born on 12 November 1942. Several media commemorated his 70th birthday in 2012. He would have been extremely young for a PhD in Germany at age 23, while 26 is still young but more realistic.

Manfred Gregor quotes Wedel personally with the birth time 14:30. (Forum entry of 17 January 2010 ). Wedel claimed birth year 1942, and Gregor reports that date.
