An appropriate film to watch on Sunday morning. tehe While this then-experimental movie relies on non-actors, their scenes together often seem rehearsed and the two men are dislikeable jerks. As such, the film succeeds best when it does not concentrate on its protagonists. There are some great, sweeping shots of various citizens just going about their Sunday business, particularly on the beach. The film has some excellent low camera angles (camera placed on the floor) too and the shots taken from on the water are quite innovative.

38. Kohlhiesel's Daughters (1920)

Image

Not all of the puns work here with silly, sped-up footage and much physical humour in the mix, but the story has its fair of amusing moments as the younger sister's beau goes to extremes to ensure that her older sister marries. The biggest sell-point here though is the amazing casting of Henny Porten as both the older and younger sister. With minimal makeup and costume differences, Porten makes herself seem like two separate women just from the way she moves her arms and contorts her face. Emil Jannings is always welcome, but this is Porten's film all the way.

39. Romeo und Julia im Schnee (1920)

Image

As Ernst Lubitsch's take on Shakespeare's classic tragedy, this silent comedy is undeniably curious for novelty value alone, but as a narrative it is unsatisfying. The focus is never on the romance with the title characters not meeting until there is less than 26 minutes left. Instead, we get plenty of scenes of the families comically feuding (sticking out tongues at each other; throwing snowballs) and Juliet has a simpleton suitor who she has to dodge - a character whose mental handicap is awkwardly played for laughs. The subverting of the poison-taking plot is really good though.

This was a pretty cool film to end this challenge on. Breathtaking visuals (all those aerial shots, the sublime dissolve edits, images like above) and while the film certainly does sag in the middle section, it concludes on a pretty memorable note. I would write up more, but I'm short on time.

Thanks for hosting, Knaldskalle!

Le silence de la filmShow
OK here we go finally.

Started off with a Lubitsch silent comedy 3fer:

1. Das fidele Gefängnis / The Merry Jail (1917)
2. Meyer aus Berlin (1919)
3. Die Bergkatze / The Wildcat (1921)

non-comedy Lubitsch:

4. Sumurun (1920)

5. Von morgens bis mitternachts / From Morn to Midnight (Karl Heinz Martin, 1920)

6. Becoming Charley Chase I - 12+13+6+11+11+13 m = 66 m
a) Peanuts and Bullets (Nick Cogley, 1915)
b) Love and Armor (various directors, 1915)
c) Settled at the Seaside (Frank Griffin, 1915)
d) Love, Loot and Crash (Frank Griffin, 1915)
e) A Versatile Villain (Frank Griffin, 1915)

7. Very early comedy shorts - 64 minutes total
a) The Enchanted Drawing (J. Stuart Blackton, 1900) 2 m
b) The Finish of Bridget McKeen (Edwin S. Porter, 1901) 1 m
c) Rêve et realité (Ferdinand Zecca, 1901) 1 m
d) Terrible Teddy, the Grizzly King (Edwin S. Porter, 1902) 1 m
e) Uncle Josh at the Moving Picture Show (Edwin S. Porter, 1903) 2 m
f) A Romance of the Rain (Edwin S. Porter, 1903) 4 m
g) Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (J. Stuart Blackton, 1906) 3 m
h) That Fatal Sneeze (Lewin Fitzhamon, 1907) 6 m
i) Help! Help! (Mack Sennett, 1912) 8 m
j) Mabel's Blunder (Mabel Normand 1913) 13m
k) A Reckless Romeo (Roscoe Arbuckle, 1917) 23m

8. Harakiri (Fritz Lang, 1919)
9. Schuhpalast Pinkus (Ernst Lubitsch, 1916)

More early Lubitsch, with the director starring as a good-for-nothing student (college I guess though it was rather unclear, almost as unclear as the picture in this low-res YT viewing) who gets thrown out and decides to go to work, eventually ending up as a shoe salesman and then owner of his own company. Lubitsch here is playing sort of a prankster-bad boy and he does better with this than he did with his merchant Meyer character in Meyer aus Berlin but the film just isn't that funny and it ends in a strange sentimental way that seems at odds with the broad near-slapstick that we've been watching. Thankfully it's short, and thankfully the director got a whole lot better soon.

10. Der Student von Prag (Paul Wegener/Stellan Rye, 1913)

Supposedly the first feature-length horror film and the first German "art" film - though of course there may be other examples of both, lost to history and nitrate fragility - I went into this with rather low expectations for some reason but was pretty knocked out by it, and probably would have been more so had I watched a better copy than the YouTube one I saw. The description says that it's a loose adaptation of Poe's "William Wilson" among other literary sources, and the feel is at times Poe-like, but I think "Faust" is likely a larger part of it's source, as our young but poor student-swordsman Balduin (director Wegener) receives help from a mysterious stranger when he despairs at not having the money or standing to woo a beautiful Countess - he'll get a fortune, and all that he's required to give up is...well, you can guess. The theme of the double was probably never used better in this era and hasn't been done more interestingly very often since, and this looks and feels quite modern with it's use of locations and it's attempts at psychological realism. Quite a brilliant film, maybe the best first viewing of this challenge for me.

11. Anders als die Andern / Different from Others (Richard Oswald, 1919)

And another first - the first sympathetic portrayal of homosexuality in a feature, made specifically as an attack on and a plea for public support against Paragraph 175, a German law which had criminalized homosexuality and which was unfortunately still in force for 75 years after this film was released. Conrad Veidt gets a sympathetic role for a change as the violinist Körner who falls in love with a young student only to be blackmailed and dragged into court, with tragic results. The film is incomplete but is very nicely reconstructed with stills and cards that give us a good idea of the full feature, though there are some elements that remained unclear to me - such as whether or not the blackmailer was actually gay himself or solely a pretender who did so for the purposes of extortion; the latter seems likely but if so it doesn't seem that well constructed as a plot device to me. Certainly this isn't the spectacle that we expect from the more famous Expressionist films of the era but as a potent piece of well-meaning agitprop it's still pretty strong today.

12. Becoming Charley Chase II - 14 + 16 + 10 + 10 + 12 = 62 minutes
a) He Wouldn't Stay Down (Ford Sterling, 1915)
b) Married to Order (Charley Chase, 1920)
c) At First Sight (J.A. Howe, 1924)
d) One of the Family (Scott Pembroke, 1924)
e) Just a Minute (James Parrott, 1924)

More Chase, with the last three of these being early examples of his "Jimmy Jump" series, where he's playing a relatively consistent character - a middle-class, or perhaps aspiring middle-class young man who regularly gets screwed over by those above him and those he's trying to impress, typically in part through his own bad decisions but also through fate, While they're certainly still comedies these do have a bit more pathos than the earlier films and even a little bit of class-conscious satire and criticism. The last of this bunch features Jimmy as a car salesman who is about to get married but only gets an hour off to do so - and then has that hour eaten into when he has to show off a new model the mayor, who proves a very difficult customer and in the course of one reel costs our hero his job, his fiancee and most of his dignity. Still can't say I'm bowled over by Chase but I'm becoming a bit more interested now, and the Jimmy Jump character has at least a little bit of that special quality we find in the silent greats, Harold Lloyd in particular, though Chase lacks Lloyd's acrobatic grace.

13. Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler (Fritz Lang, 1922) (3rd viewing)

This was the first silent Lang I saw, apart from (perhaps) Metropolis, and I first watched it on one of those horrible no-name VHS tapes with the mimeographed labels - you older folks who were serious viewers 30 years ago know what I'm talking about - with a very indistinct fuzzy picture, poor and minimal titles, and no soundtrack. But it was still fairly overwhelming, because I knew nothing else like it - and because I was already used to crappy viewing experiences. In the late 90s I saw it in the cinema in a pretty good print as I remember though I'm fairly sure it was a bit shorter, maybe under 4 hours. Now I've got the new KINO BD complete silent box set and so it was time again. And it's as good as I remember it - and also has the same small but significant flaws. While I've always loved this film it hasn't ever struck me as in the director's top tier, and the two sequels likewise - all excellent but for me missing just a little something that would put them on top.

It's certainly not Mabuse himself in this film, played here by Rudolph Klein-Rogge in one of the most magnetic and eerie criminal mastermind portrayals ever. And the sets and photography and effects are all pretty terrific as well. I suppose one flaw is that it *is* just a bit long for what it is - I think some of the gambling sequences run on a bit - and that it doesn't perhaps add up to what it seems to promise; ultimately Mabuse is a gambler and a counterfeiter, and his great powers of the mind don't seem to lead him any further than those limited activities though we might presume that national or international conquest (which will become themes in later films) would be on his agenda. And his ending fate is not entirely convincing to me -
SpoilerShow
he doesn't seem someone who would ever suffer a twinge of guilt, so the idea that he could be driven mad by it in the end doesn't sit right with me. But Lang the fervent Catholic for whom guilt was an overwhelming element in most of his work probably couldn't have it otherwise
These are small beefs really though - the overall architecture and structure are solid and the film remains very worth plowing through in it's 4 1/2 hours of lies, treachery, disguises, betrayals, and doom.

Both my wife and I have been trying to avoid getting sick these past few days, but to no avail. Cough cough. So no new entries from me, but I've updated the standings. I'm a little disappointed in myself, I was so looking forward to this challenge and to going through my pile of unwatched silent movies, but I just haven't had the time and/or energy.

I will, though, make a point of finding some Pina Menichelli to watch!

SpoilerShow
1. Furcht / Fear (1917, Robert Wiene) 4/10

2. Thomas Graals bästa film / Thomas Graal's Best Film (1917, Mauritz Stiller) 5.5/10

3. Unheimliche Geschichten / Eerie Tales (1919, Richard Oswald) 4.5/10

4. Daddy-Long-Legs (1919, Marshall Neilan) 5/10

5. Vingarne / The Wings (1916, Mauritz Stiller) 6.5/10.
An earlier version of Dreyer's Michael. Hits many strong notes, but a little too basic.

6. Madame de Thèbes / The Son of Destiny (1915, Mauritz Stiller) 5.5/10
Solid melodrama.

7. Sången om den eldröda blomman / Song of the Scarlet Flower (1919, Mauritz Stiller) 6/10
Had great expectations, but turned out to only be a moderately good melodrama. A shame given what Stiller had already made at this point.

8. Meyer aus Berlin / Meyer from Berlin (1919, Ernst Lubitsch) 6.5/10
Fittingly cheeky for Lubitch in this era, but surprisingly flat and ordinary cinematically. The Oyster Princess from the same year looks spectacular, this looks almost a little ugly in spots. Still very fun, though the comedy is too exaggerated.

9. Goluboy ekspress / China Express (1929,
With spectacular shots, action packed mayham and great soviet montage this propaganda film may be a bit too heavy, but watching the slave revolt extent from the back compartment to the front was a great experience (and will remind you of a few very recent outings). 8/10.

10. Seven Footprints to Satan (1929, Benjamin Christensen)
At time so absurd that it comes across as brilliantly surreal, and with the final twist everything will certainly make sense. I can see why many would find this insanity great, but it just struck me as far too thin and silly, especially the opening, and from a cinematic perspective it could certainly have been far more visual. Note, this is a horror comedy, and expect to be entertained. A good effort for sure. 6/10.

11. The Jack-Knife Man (1920, King Vidor)
Pretty standard sentimental fare with a weather-beaten but good-hearted poor/tramlike man, and a child to care for. 6/10.

12. Maldone (1928, Jean Gremillon)
Poetic and rythmic cinema, with the kind of sensibility that makes Gremillon one of France's most interesting directors of this period. Sadly an over-reliance on a relatively dull story arc leaves it shy of greatness. 7/10

13. Nochnoj izvozchik / The Night Coachman (1928, Georgi Tasin)
Heartbreaking and psychological look into a sense of extreme hopelessness. While it is ticking in just under the hour, it feels far grander, largely due to the sense of being in a nightmare while fully awake. 8/10.

14. Arsena Jorjiashvili / The Murder of General Gryaznov (1921, Ivane Perestiani)
Poor propaganda, without any visul finesse. 3/10

15. Prividenie, kotoroe ne vozvrashchaetsya / The Ghost That Never Returns (1930, Abram Room)
The version I watched had some badly done voice acting added over random scenes (often without translations as well), the silent underneath however was very good. Visually secure and a solid journey, that may just be a little too underdone in the middle stages. The opening and the world it created was great, and the quality of the copy was far better than expected. 7/10.

16. Poslednij attraktsion / The Last Attraction (1929, Ivan Pravov & Olga Preobrazhenskaya)
Could have been far better visually but this story of broadly neutral, even anti-soviet theater people, forced to work for the revolution, while slowly seeing that it's not all bad, was in a way cutely comedical and surpriingly not so positive of the Soviets as you'd expect a propaganda film to be. 6/10.

17. Ich küsse Ihre Hand, Madame / I Kiss Your Hand, Madame (1929, Robert Land)
Isn't it unfair that this nobleman had to become a butler and thus lacks the respect of his "peers". Despite the slightly off framing, this was a cute and fun drama comedy, well done in every way. 7/10.

18. Chuji Tabinikki Daisanbu Goyohen (1927, Daisuke Itô)
Strong early samurai film, with many great shots and an interesting character journey. 7/10.
19-26. La maison du mystère / House of Mystery (1923, Alexandre Volkoff)
A 10 part dramatic serial, with a very long build up that packs quite a lot of magic. Honestly, if cut shorter it would not be a great film - the plot is fairly straight forward, as are the characters, but the atmosphere and drama built up over 6 hours is an almost unparallelled experience. A clean story, with majestic atmosphere, great production values, solid acting and strong visuals. The quality of the print is breathtaking, and it feels like an epic from the very beginning. Can't recommend this enough. 8.5/10.

20. Le avventure straordinarissime di Saturnino Farandola (1913, Marcel Perez, Luigi Maggi)
Really fun and fluid, though overly silly and disjointed adventure film, that can never sit still, jumping from adventure to adventure. While the monkeys were silly, the effects in general were impressive, as was the fact that they moved the camera far more than most films made around this time, and clearly had a lot of fun here. Definitely worth a viewing. 6/10.


21. J'accuse (1919, Abel Gance)
This was a shock. I know my general annoyance when it comes to Gance is known here. Yes, this was heavy handed, but to such epic and sensual proportions the melodrama genuinly worked, and the last 30 minutes are simply spectacular. Could he have ruined it with the utter arbitrarity of "I accuse"?, obviously, but the cinema is still spectacular and I couldn't help but loving it. Moving performances, brilliant choreography, and a true emotional punch. A genuine and brilliant epic, which also feels well ahead of it's time. 9/10.


22. Rapsodia satanica (1917, Nino Oxilia)
This could have been great. Playful, clever and interesting use of colours. In the end the pay off was just a little too slim and empty. 7.5/10.


23. Filibus (1915, Mario Roncoroni)
Fun romp, with not only a female villain outsmarting a detective, but a really outlandish adventure crime narrative, just as the below serial, but in short. Stiff in execution, yes, but a good view overall. 6/10.


24-27. Judex (1916, Louis Feuillade)
12 part serial (with an uncounted prologue as the longest episode) covered a caped, but unmasked crusader. Good basic entertainment. 6/10.


28. L'Odissea (1911, Francesco Bertolini, Giuseppe de Liguoro & Adolfo Padovan)
Adapted frompaintings of Homer's Oddyssey rather than the story itself, the film feels disconnected, but offers good effects - adly that's about it. 4/10.


29. Eternal Love (1929, Ernst Lubitsch)
Obviously well made, and I might have liked it more if the print was better, perhaps it was actually a beauty to look at - there are some really well done scenes here, including great suspense and drama. I didn't fully buy the love story, but a very good film all the same. 7.5/10.


30. Der Geiger von Florenz / Impetuous Youth / The Violinist of Florence (1926, Paul Czinner)
Bit of a thin runaway teenager comedy, but cute enough and the new print is quite wonderful. 5.5/10.

-

That's it for me this time, was a solid batch, and I'm happy I could finally catch up on more 1910s films. Thank you RGB for pointing me in the direction of the Italian films.

Hi Knaldskalle!

I was focusing primarily on the other two challenges but these three masterpieces of German silent cinema did come my way last month.

1. 'Der letzte Mann' / 1924, F.W. Murnau / 9/10
2. 'Metropolis' / 1927, Fritz Lang / 10/10
3. 'Asphalt' / 1929, Joe May / 9.5/10

Fascinating challenge (even if I was much more of an observer than a participant).

:cheers:
That's all, folks!

Le silence de la filmShow
OK here we go finally.

Started off with a Lubitsch silent comedy 3fer:

1. Das fidele Gefängnis / The Merry Jail (1917)
2. Meyer aus Berlin (1919)
3. Die Bergkatze / The Wildcat (1921)

non-comedy Lubitsch:

4. Sumurun (1920)

5. Von morgens bis mitternachts / From Morn to Midnight (Karl Heinz Martin, 1920)

6. Becoming Charley Chase I - 12+13+6+11+11+13 m = 66 m
a) Peanuts and Bullets (Nick Cogley, 1915)
b) Love and Armor (various directors, 1915)
c) Settled at the Seaside (Frank Griffin, 1915)
d) Love, Loot and Crash (Frank Griffin, 1915)
e) A Versatile Villain (Frank Griffin, 1915)

7. Very early comedy shorts - 64 minutes total
a) The Enchanted Drawing (J. Stuart Blackton, 1900) 2 m
b) The Finish of Bridget McKeen (Edwin S. Porter, 1901) 1 m
c) Rêve et realité (Ferdinand Zecca, 1901) 1 m
d) Terrible Teddy, the Grizzly King (Edwin S. Porter, 1902) 1 m
e) Uncle Josh at the Moving Picture Show (Edwin S. Porter, 1903) 2 m
f) A Romance of the Rain (Edwin S. Porter, 1903) 4 m
g) Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (J. Stuart Blackton, 1906) 3 m
h) That Fatal Sneeze (Lewin Fitzhamon, 1907) 6 m
i) Help! Help! (Mack Sennett, 1912) 8 m
j) Mabel's Blunder (Mabel Normand 1913) 13m
k) A Reckless Romeo (Roscoe Arbuckle, 1917) 23m

8. Harakiri (Fritz Lang, 1919)
9. Schuhpalast Pinkus (Ernst Lubitsch, 1916)
10. Der Student von Prag (Paul Wegener/Stellan Rye, 1913)
11. Anders als die Andern / Different from Others (Richard Oswald, 1919)

12. Becoming Charley Chase II - 14 + 16 + 10 + 10 + 12 = 62 minutes
a) He Wouldn't Stay Down (Ford Sterling, 1915)
b) Married to Order (Charley Chase, 1920)
c) At First Sight (J.A. Howe, 1924)
d) One of the Family (Scott Pembroke, 1924)
e) Just a Minute (James Parrott, 1924)

13. Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler (Fritz Lang, 1922) (3rd viewing)
14. Becoming Charley Chase III - 10 + 10 + 3 + 12 + 10 + 12 + 10 = 67m
a) Powder and Smoke (James Parrott)
b) Hard Knocks (James Parrott)
c) Don't Forget (James Parrott)
d) The Fraidy Cat (James Parrott)
e) Publicity Pays (Leo McCarey)
f) Young Oldfield (Leo McCarey)
g) Stolen Goods (Leo McCarey)

The highlight here in this group of more 1924 "Jimmy Jump" one-reelers in The Fraidy Cat, where our hero is a bullied sissy who learns to fight back; a fair amount of visual inventiveness here and one pretty good effect as a dummy turns into a live man. Publicity Pays offers Charley a chance to show some climbing skills in going after a monkey outside a hotel room; the rest of these are pretty fair-to-middlin' I reckon.

That's it for me, thanks for hosting knalds

Alright, I've updated the standings (let me know if I made any mistakes) and added numbering so everyone can see how well they fared.

Congratulations to psychotronicbeatnik on the win! 112 is far more than I thought anyone would watch. Thanks to everyone for participating!
Personal film goals for 2019.
