10. The Old Dark House (1932): 8.0
11. Shukujo wa nani o wasureta ka [What Did the Lady Forget?] (1937): 8.0
12. L'âge d'or (1930): 7.2 - It looks absolutely beautiful and is greatly directed. But it’s too surreal for my taste and all the kicking against institutions Bunuel does, doesn’t have the same impact nowadays anymore.

I didn't go deep searching for unseen 30s films, but these few did end up coming my way regardless of my lazy efforts. Ended up on 12 fresh 1930s films this month, which should be around average for me since I finished the decade. Equal amount from the other decades (1800s-1929 + 1940-42).


Image

4. Something Always Happens (1934, Michael Powell) - 5/10
--- Everything about this British production is so simple. From the plot, sets, acting, yet it all works so charmingly! I guess a lot of that could be credited to Michael Powell showing signs of knowing what he's doing before he became a star director.


Image

5. The Accusing Finger (1936, James P. Hogan) - 4/10
--- Up-comings as a man sending people to jail also gets falsely convicted of a murder he did not commit. The Accusing Finger (1936) serves the story well, but gets rather tedious when the conclusion nears. The investigation to find the real killer is a boring mess and the focus becomes very melodramatic on those waiting to get executed. The ending comes in a lackluster way unfortunately.


Image

6. Sleeping Car (1933, Anatole Litvak) - 6/10
--- How can such a bubbly proforma marriage affair with Ivor Novello by so criminally neglected?! I know the scenario is no biggie, but how it's handled by the always adequate Anatole Litvak is excellent. The loose and playful nature, along with brilliantly effective camera work, made a silly idea work surprisingly well. And when you add that dog and train scene at the end, the pleasing feeling is fulfilled.


Image

7. Little Accident (1930, William James Craft) - 2/10
--- Second obscure film in a row I see using the annulment/pregnancy angle. I guess that's why they're rarely see the light of day, for it's hardly a good plot point. However Little Accident (1930) has bigger problems. Probable Douglas Fairbanks Jr. least talked about talkies, and with reason. Suffers greatly from being a early talkie. People familiar with the period will know what I mean. Doug Jr. was still a smooth talker, and not as awkward as most, but the written script was pretty close to terrible and production almost equally unimpressive. This was no Little Accident (1930). This was a big one.


Image

8. The Big Shot (1931, Ralph Murphy & Edward Sedgwick) - 4/10
--- Eddie Quillan in a silly little comedy. Thin written, but with a few funny bits and pieces. Quillan was good considering what he was served. Wouldn't been without Arthur Stone as the old timer either. Not a comedy to go out of your way to see, but there have been many worse.


Image

9. The Night Angel (1931, Edmund Goulding) - 4/10
--- The Night Angel (1931) felt odd in a intriguing way. Slightly grotesque and creepy, with it's stalker-ish romance and a ruthless underground world. Fredric March was a charmless stiffie chasing after Nancy Carroll with barely a lovable trait to her personality. It was a chase you didn't want a happy ending to. Yet all this made it what it was, whatever that was.


Image

10. Hot Tip (1935, James Gleason & Ray McCarey) - 4/10
--- James Gleason as a betting man, always putting money on the wrong horse. Even worse, doesn't put money on a winning horse for others. That's the simple basis for this comedy. Actually it's more touching than funny with likable people on top. And even with the super cheap production polish underneath, Gleason brings enough heart into this basic scenario to make it work.


Image

11. Roaming Lady (1936, Albert S. Rogell) - 3/10
--- Ralph Bellamy as a rugged pilot trying to shake off rich heiress Fay Wray. The "love in the air" scenario felt forced from the start, and it just got ridiculous when they end up on a hijacked ship together, heading to China and some Chinese bandits. Not a terribly good movie, but its got a little of that "so bad it's good" qualities.


12. The Widow from Monte Carlo (1935, Arthur Greville Collins) - 4/10
--- The precode master Warren William castrated! It's 1935, you know. He's still courting beautiful women, but it's all a very tame affair. And honestly, this was a very tedious film. Had it not been for Warren Hymer's ugly mug shaking things up, this would have been quite unbearable. Man, that guy has saved a lot of terrible pictures!

And that's it for me:

48. Ich bei Tag und du bei Nacht / I by Day, You by Night (1932, Ludwig Berger)
A bit of a slow start, but this film just kept getting better and better. Outside of one bit of the film oddly missing sound (and bein)

49. Gjest Baardsen (1939, Tancred Ibsen)
A really fun dramatic comedy about a criminal who will always manage to escape (Gjest = Guest), but has a heart of gold, a neck for disguises and heart of gold. Outside of a few setbacks great fun all around. 7.5/10.


50. Jánosik (1936, Martin Fric)
Fric's take on the Slovak Robin Hood-like character with a revolutionary slant, Janosik, is really middling. A lot of chase scenes and fights, but little with, creativity or atmosphere building we know Fric can do so well. Just passable. 5/10.


51. Die englische Heirat / The English Marriage (1934, Reinhold Schünzel)
Another German comedy which just got funnier as it went along. 6.5/10.


52. Velikiy uteshitel / The Great Consoler (1933, Lev Kuleshov)
A wonderful final film for the challenge. Kuleshov's blend of reality and fiction, combined with striking visuals and an atmosphere of stark oppression makes The Great Consoler a must see. 8/10.

25. Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936)
26. Top Hat (1935)
27. 42nd Street (1933)
After my intense love of Gold Diggers of 1933, this was a bit of a letdown. But only because the first ~hour exists. If I were rating only the last 25 minutes or so, it would be a solid 9+ - the final choreography and cinematography were amazing, and I'm not sure I'll look at legs the same way ever again. But the rest of the film fell flat and pretty much dragged on.

28. A Farewell to Arms (1932)
Good film, but not that exciting. It's my prequel to the war challenge, I guess.

Bonus: Rambling 'Round Radio Row #2 (1932, 9m)
Not very memorable, I guess. :shrug:

Thanks for hosting, 72a! :cheers:

My S/O hates this sort of movie - where the whole film could be resolved with a simple conversation. Forget Dancing Cheek to Cheek; "Isn't This a Lovely Day (to be Caught in the Rain)" is the best song of the film. I can't get enough of these Astaire/Rogers films.

10. Shorts collection #3
10A Monsieur Fantômas (1937) - Surrealist comedy parody of Fantomas; highlight being the nod to Potemkin

This is a fucking commercial for Shell Oil ......
10C Douro, Faina Fluvial (1931) - Interesting crossroads of past, modernity, and nature - and the interplay between them
10D A Dream Walking (1934) - I'm still not sold on Popeye, I've just never found it amusing.
10E Experimental Animation 1933 (1933) - Well, that was an experience - with that terrifying singing peanut vendor monkey puppet
10F Mickey's Fire Brigade (1935) - So many of these early Disney cartoons end with everything +everyone destroyed. Fascinating to see how Mickey has transformed over the years into this braindead grotesque mascot (try watching a Clubhouse Disney 3d animated cartoon if you can stomach it).


And with that, I'm done with my first challenge. No promises that I'll work on another anytime soon.

51. 'Dvadtsat shest komissarov' / 'Twenty-Six Commissars' / 1932, Nikoloz Shengelaia / 7.5 or 8/10 / USSR (Azerbaijan)
52. 'Eine nacht im Paradies' / 'A Night in Paradise' / 1932, Karel Lamac / 8/10 / Germany
53. 'The Greeks Had a Word for Them' / 1932, Lowell Sherman / 8/10 / USA
54. 'Frisco Kid' / 1935, Lloyd Bacon / 7/10 / USA
55. 'Mark of the Vampire' / 1935, Tod Browning / 6.5 or 7/10 / USA
56. 'Beauty and the Barge' / 1937, Henry Edwards / 6.5 or 7/10 / UK
57. 'Stella Dallas' / 1937, King Vidor / 8.5/10 / USA
58. 'Le quai des brumes' / 'Port of Shadows' / 1938, Marcel Carné / 10/10 / France

What better way to end the challenge than with an Anny Ondra vehicle; in Lamac's delightful diversion she's the girl from a lower rung of society crashing parties and romancing above her station. Fluffy plot for sure but it's all in the handling and Ondra is a sparkling, ebullient hoot and a ball of energetic inventiveness and playful charm. She was so much more than a guileless Hitchcock star!

Great challenge, 72! Thanks for hosting.

47. Hej-Rup! / Heave Ho! (1934, Martin Fric)
I can definitely see the comparison to Laurel & Hardy, Minkin, and I agree this was so much fun. It is much faster paced than your usual Fric (not that he is slow), but this really is heave-ho - you have, especially in the latter half, always a feeling that everything is happening at lighting speed - which is great for urgency. Our villain felt a little too weak, and the heave-ho chants (especially in the finale) a little too silly - but this part of it is also very endearing. A great comedy about hijinx, second chances and solidarity. 8/10.
Well, this is probably the quickest turn-around between my giving a recommendation and someone watching it! I'm so glad you also enjoyed it!

All of the repetitive use of Hej-Rep makes me think they were trying to create a nationwide catchphrase. Which I can't blame them as this was such a turbulent time for the country in too many ways - with impending doom quickly approaching (in 1938). Also - with some ethnic divisions in the country (Slovaks), I'm relieved that they avoided taking a nationalist turn - and instead tried to be somewhat inclusive with the material - as revolution and cooperation is for everyone.

I think the villain appears weak -
SpoilerShow
only as the police refuse to help him (which isn't realistic, unfortunately) - and that he only really controls one industry, not a further web of connections. But there's too many comparisons one can make to today - with him dissolving the company as a quick stock sale + merging/buy-out in order to layoff workers; etc. And I suppose we've been trained to see these things as "tactics of successful businesspeople that happen everyday," not loathsome deeds

All of that + it manages to be great fun! I'd recommend others check it out as well. Perhaps one day I'll see some other Fric films (when I have a way to access them).
I had already seen two Frics just before so I was ready for more, especially when your recommendation was so glowing (and being in the middle of the 30s challenge certainly helped).

I didn't actually mean that the villain was too weak in terms of finances, should have made that clear, I rather meant his posture and voice. He was just a little too forced into this sniveling capitalist role for me, though having one of the co-leads be a lovable capitalist himself made for a very interesting view.

As for your reading, that may very well be spot on, and I have to admit, "Hej-rup" is a little addictive. :D
