St. Gloede wrote:I have Mirages de Paris coming up, extra excited now. Fyodor Otsep is without a doubt one of the more interesting lesser known directors of the 20s and 30s. The Living Corpse is a favorite, and both Amok and Der Mörder Dimitri Karamasoff are made in such a brilliant and unique way (sadly I did not like Zemlya v plenu, but that was also the first film I saw from him - and I have not yet seen Miss Mend).

Is the screenshot from Das Lied vom Leben?
:thumbsup: Love all those Otseps you mention (and that includes 'Zemlya v plenu'), but I think you will be a bit surprised (I was!) by the fast-paced, madcap farce of 'Mirages de Paris’ (although portions of 'Miss Mend' already anticipate it); an absolute joy of a film, with an inventive use of sound and music, similar to the contemporaneous films of René Clair or Ludwig Berger.

Yes, it's from Alexis Granowsky's 'Das Lied vom Leben', quite sure the craziest film I'll be seeing this month, and a director whose small output fascinates me more and more - the film's first quarter, depicting a wedding proposal, channels the grotesque eccentrism of Kozintsev/Trauberg, it then ventures into what seems like a lost reel of a French impressionist masterpiece (superimpositions, the body, the sea), it goes on to become almost an educational film (a lengthy caesarian birth), before ending with a Brechtian songspiel praising Life. Bonkers!

We are in the same wavelength as I have 'Saison in Kairo' right here to be seen!

2. Scipione l'africano / Scipio Africanus (It 37)

I guess this is Mussolini-era propaganda but it doesn't come across as too heavy-handed. Battle scenes with elephants. It's not every day one gets to see a movie about the Punic wars. (Maybe I should have saved it for next month.) [Amazon Prime US, dubbed]

This features what is easily one of Spencer Tracy's career best performances, oozing charm and charisma while also noticeably plagued by fears of being pinned down in life. Memorable moments include Tracy avoiding payment of a restaurant bill and his daring handing of summons to an elusive stage actress. Tracy is never entirely likeable with his treatment of his girlfriend, but his mixed personality underneath is what makes him so interesting. The film also provides a nice glimpse into banding together during the depths of the Great Depression with some great supporting characters.

6. 'Liebelei' / 1933, Max Ophüls / 10/10 / Germany
7. 'Brown on Resolution' / 1935, Walter Forde / 7 or 7.5/10 / UK
8. 'Rhythm Racketeer' / 1937, James Seymour / 7.5/10 / UK
9. 'Song of the Road' / 1937, John Baxter / 6.5 or 7/10 / UK

The Berkeley-esque choreography of the dance numbers combined with the humourous integration of the doppelganger aspect of American hoodlum and British band leader make 'Rhythm Racketeer' a surprisingly diverting and eye-catching example of its low-budget kind. Three or four rather hummable numbers as well from leading man Harry Roy, who acquits himself quite well in the dual role.

9. Zolotoy klyuchik / The Golden Key (1939, Aleksandr Ptushko)
Ptushko's take on Pinocchio is, very much like his New Gulliver filled with incredibly impressive effects, but just a bit too silly, in the negative sense. Here the issue is primarily the belief that screechingly high voices and nasal voices are funny in and of themselves (the plot structure is also a little bit thin in and of itself, and the ending, while impressive, is entirely out of nowhere). Still a fun enough ride, and worth a watch. 6/10.

10. Mirages de Paris (1933, Fyodor Otsep)
Absolutely fantastic editing (as expected in at Opsep film) but this is magical - the direction and viduals are also fantastic (though I'm not sure if the copy is slightly cropped). This almost fantastical, and fast-paced comedic dream features a young girl escaping her boarding school for Paris to become an actress, and ends up through through the cities gutters in a frenzied tale of mistaken identities and big dreams. Recommended for all, and another film that, if polished and released by Criterion would likely enter its rightfull place in the canon. 9/10

11. La tavola dei poveri / Table for the Poor (1932, Alessandro Blasetti)
Wonderfully directed by Blasetti, simple, yet elegant, with an emotional core. 8/10.


12. Palio (1932, Alessandro Blasetti)
Also well shot and largely well directed, but here the story feels a lot more hamfisted as the build up to the Palio (a yearly horse raise between Italian towns) starts to drag on before an obvious and a little silly finale. 6/10.

Katharine Hepburn provides an unexpectedly fresh and chirpy performance here and is supported well by Fred Stone as her unfairly henpecked father and Frank Albertson as her gambler brother - the most down-to-earth character in the film. Solid as some of the performances might be, it is hard to care about the characters, especially Hepburn with her first world problems and a nagging Ann Shoemaker who spends the whole film blaming Stone for not making enough money to give Hepburn the opulent lifestyle she wants.

4. The Front Page (1931)
5. Malu Tianshi AKA Street Angel (1937)

12. Reefer Madness (1936)
I remember loving this the first time I saw it because it was so ridiculous and funny. Now it just seems sad.

Seasoned Greetings (1933, 20m)
We're in the Money (1933, 7m)

Pettin' in the Park (1934, 7m)
Labor on the Douro River (1931, 20m)
The Song of Ceylon (1934, 38m)
Nothing super awesome from this batch, though I did enjoy Labor on the Douro River for some pretty cool visuals.

15. Make Way for Tomorrow (1937)
The Orson Welles quote on this film is that "it would make a stone cry." And I believe it. I saw so much of my parents and grandparents and myself in that film. It was a good cry and reasonably uplifting, in a way. But man did that hit at every single emotion intended in those scenes. Fantastic film. (l)

Nothing super awesome from this batch, though I did enjoy Labor on the Douro River for some pretty cool visuals.

15. Make Way for Tomorrow (1937)
The Orson Welles quote on this film is that "it would make a stone cry." And I believe it. I saw so much of my parents and grandparents and myself in that film. It was a good cry and reasonably uplifting, in a way. But man did that hit at every single emotion intended in those scenes. Fantastic film. (l)

5. She (Lansing C. Holden/Irving Pichel, 1935) (re-watch)

Third viewing I think. This comes 2 years after the original King Kong and had the same producer, Merian C. Cooper, trying to duplicate that film's monstrous (ha) success. It didn't quite work, but others were trying the same thing, and the 30s as a whole are one of the Golden Ages for big-budget adventure featuring monsters, exotic locales, and lost worlds. This doesn't have the former but plenty of the latter two elements, as protagonists Randolph Scott and Nigel Bruce penetrate the Arctic in search of a forgotten land that may hold the secret of immortality. This is actually the 7th of 8 adaptations of the H. Rider Haggard novel - Haggard was as popular in the silent and early sound years as Stephen King is today - and the best of the three I've seen, with a commanding performance or maybe "presence" is more accurate by Helen Gahagan - later a U.S. Representative from California who ran against Richard Nixon for the Senate and coined the term "tricky Dick" - in her only film role. It's reasonably exciting and the sets and photography are top-notch for the period, but it does have one really big flaw, and sorry as a huge fan to have to say this, but its Randolph Scott, who is terribly dull and inappropriate for this role. Scott was OK in some of the cheaper b-films he did in this period, or in playing sidekick to Cary Grant or Fred Astaire, but he really didn't star to come into his own as an actor until Western Union six years later. Ronald Colman, Errol Flynn or Gary Cooper would all have been better choices, and any of them might have made this a truly memorable piece of escapism.

6. Red Dust (Victor Fleming, 1932)

I'm not familiar enough with Jean Harlow, or with early Clark Gable, to be able to quite get where this fits into their careers, or to see their developments as actors or stars, but it's pretty obvious even without that knowledge that this is certainly a development in the idea of the sex symbol - applied more to Harlow I suppose but not insignificantly to her male counterpart. This is one of the sexiest pre-Code films I've seen and the implications of adultery, of Gable being a stud who beds any pretty woman that comes along and of the marital troubles between Gene Raymond - who comes to work on Gable's rubber plantation in French Indochina - and wife Mary Astor, are not only much more overt than anything you'd see in Hollywood 3 years later under the Code, but also pretty racy even by 1932 standards, with Harlow naked in the barrel bathing only being the most obvious example. In it's setting and the dialogue and in Harlow's somewhat masculine behavior at times it reminds me a little of Hawks, particularly Only Angels Have Wings, though it's not anywhere near that class. And obviously the treatment of the "natives" is pretty damn racist though probably only par for the 1930s' course. Still lots of fun and the Harlow mystique is starting to work on me.

7. Charlie Chan's Secret (Gordon Wiles, 1936)

Charlie is on a boat that's trying to rescue survivors - or at least salvage the bodies - from a wreck, one of whom might be a man missing for several years, heir to a fortune currently controlled by a family whose matriarch is a friend of the detective's. A mystery...leading to a MURDER, with a medium and several greedy relatives, a big old mansion with secret doors and passages, and attempts on Charlie's life. No Number One son in this particular Chan, and a bit less humor than in most from this period, though some laughs are provided by the fidgety servant Baxter (Herbert Mundin, a terrific character actor who would be better remembered today I suspect if he hadn't died prematurely a couple of years after this film). Later Chan films often featured black actors in the service roles, with Mantan Moreland notably playing a stereotypical frightened, superstitious chauffeur, but while racism is certainly an undeniable aspect of those films, in a film like this one we are reminded that butlers and other "domestics" were often caricatured as flighty, stupid, silly, effeminate, etc, regardless of ethnicity. The good old days I guess.

Prescient of both THX-1138 (restricted love and people known only by numbers) and Sleeper, this much earlier science fiction features several novel ideas, ranging from instant babies to pill-form food to solo-flight planes overtaking cars. The miniature model special effects and newfangled sets are breathtaking too. The film veers off the deep end in the second half though, with the fish-out-water plot involving a resurrected man from 1930 relegated to the backdrop and a lot of weirdness on Mars, including some bizarre musical numbers, taking centre stage.

13. Madamu to nyôbô / The Neighbor's Wife and Mine (1931, Heinosuke Gosho)
This was a bit of a devastating disappointment as while I prefer Gosho's later work in general this early talkie (sometimes incorrectly credited as the first all-sound Japanese film) had very little to offer, and the sound was so badly done it was almost hard to watch. I can be forgiving about the technical limitations, but the "story" is also not there (and it is certainly not driven by anything else - perhaps some light humour). A curiosity, and nothing more. 4/10.


14. Remontons les Champs-Élysées / Let's Go Up the Champs-Élysées (1938, Sacha Guitry)
Sacha Guitry stars (of course) as a teacher launching into a portrait of the famous street, Champs-Élysées, which ends up in court intruiges and his character's family story intertwines in the fun, playful and delightfully indulgent "history lesson". It may feel a little poorer in spirit than his other, and far more acclaimed, historical madhouse "The Pearls of the Crown", but it is a breezy and fun viewing regardless. 8/10.


15. Den store barnedåpen / The Big Christening (1931, Tancred Ibsen)
About time I saw one of Norway's biggest classics.

The Big Christening is a very interesting, and often hilarious slice of life comedy that balances two interconnected story - the more dramatic take on unwed pregnancy and the state of Norwegian society in 1931, and the other an off-the-handle and simply hilarious religious satire.

When a holier than thou junior bishop refuses to baptize a newborn it causes a massive strike against the Church of Norway, with very unexpected consequences. Soon everyone from the Presbyterians to the Mormons crowd around like sleazy salesmen in an attempt to, as the church administrator so bluntly says "steal their customers".

It is not without issues, for instance our male protagonist can't work because he is "nervous" and everybody just keep repeating how "nervous" he is, without really showing it. It also takes a decent while before the comedic side-story actually kicks in - before this it is a pretty straight drama. It balances the two very well however. The sound is done impressively well to be Norway's first sound film, but the sound is far from perfect. 8/10.

Side-trivia: Tancred Ibsen the grandson of both Henrik Ibsen and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (the latter likely far lesser known outside of Norway)


16. Angèle (1934, Marcel Pagnol)
Like most people here I love Pagnol's Fanny trilogy (of which he technically only directed the last film), and while this does not touch it's quality, and has a relatively passive lead (and an inexplicable side-romance) it still feels fresh and vibrant enough to be his "2nd best". It is daring, with a epic scope, and while not as dialog driven as many of his other efforts, it is still delightful. 8.5/10.


17. Viktor und Viktoria (1933, Reinhold Schünzel)
I had expected something even grander, but still an adorably charming, sleek and fun film about showbiz and doing anything to succeed. Our dual lead is a cute and dynamic platonic friendship, and their origin story is very well done. The double-cross-dressing is played elegantly, with many fun and small moments and gestures as "Viktoria" pretends to be a man, complete with awkward glances at women. It drops a little steam on the way as it wades into very familiar territory - complete with the obligatory love interest, who would have been so dull had it not been Anton Walbrook.

I also have to add that feels a lot like a Willi Forst film, in the best ways possible (and I have a couple of Forst films coming up, so good tie-in).

8/10.
