This is a difficult film to assess with the plot of the American remake in mind. The story has little juice knowing the twists to come and while Ingrid Bergman did not impress me in the remake, I liked Diana Wynyard less here, except in the final five minutes. The problem lies within the character though; she is such a helpless, subservient weakling that it is difficult to ever feel for her. This is a technically accomplished film though; the shadowy opening theft is very well done and Richard Addinsell provides an underused thrilling music score. The final ten minutes or so are great too.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

There was a lot to like about this, but I just couldn't get over the fact that I found the entire premise kinda creepy. She's obsessed with this guy and stalks him long enough to get him to go out with her. It's just weird.

While this version has superb visuals courtesy of Lucien Ballard with shadows and reflections used very well, it stands clearly the shadow of the original Hitchcock movie (pun intended) as the script erases all ambiguity over whether the highly suspicious-acting Laird Cregar is actually the Ripper. Cregar certainly manages to be quite creepy despite his character having no shades of grey, but only so much entertainment can be had at the expense of waiting for the characters to realise that yes, he is a killer and has been acting suspiciously for a reason.

The live documentary aspects of this Disney film bored me a little, except for the intermittent shots of the hand-drawn animation process sped up. The animated sequences were pretty decent though - especially trying to get a llama over a rickety bridge (see above). I think the baby plane sequence was the only one that I didn't care for in the mix. The gag at the end was good, but most of the humour was pretty cringe-worthy, what with sneezing planes, planes going to plane school and all. The title song was okay; not quite sure if it was Oscar worthy.

The premise comes with potential here and it is fun to see Laurel in a double role as the more eloquent and confident 'Don Sebastian'. This other character does not enter the scene until the final ten minutes though, and even then he has limited dialogue. As for the rest of the film, it is a mess and it is sad to see Stan and Ollie reduced to extended water splashing fights and boiled egg fights. A lame pants ripping gag is also used not once but twice. I've seen a baker's dozen of Laurel + Hardy features, and I would so far sadly rate this as their second weakest after Air Raid Wardens.

Very reminescent of Some Like It Hot, Johnny Downs certainly looks the part under heavy makeup (see above) but with his voice and mannerisms, the film pushes the limits of credibility as nobody catches onto the ruse at first. This is an energetic affair though with a very funny laundry raid in the mix, plus silent comedy master Harry Langdon (see also above) in a nice weaselly supporting turn. There are some very catchy tunes too; "I'm a Chap with a Chip on My Shoulder" and the Oscar nominated "Out of the Silence" both make for great listening.

This Disney animated feature has some inventive animation, including a mirroring psychedelic sequence and a few segments that blend live action and animation. The plot here is a mess though: basically a set of loosely connected vignettes, the most impressive of which comes very early in as Donald watches a home movie about a very cold penguin - and Donald's absence is part of what makes it so tolerable. Constantly lusting after beautiful young women, Donald comes off as rather creepy here and running gags involving his jealousy and elevated heartbeats tire quickly.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

A Peaceful DecadeShow
1. 40,000 Horsemen (Charles Chauvel, 1940)
2. The Gang's All Here (Busby Berkely, 1943)
3. None Shall Escape (André De Toth, 1944)
4. Panique (Julien Duvivier, 1946)
5. La nuit fantastique / Fantastic Night (Marcel L'Herbier, 1942)
6. Easter Parade (Charles Walters, 1948) (re-watch)
7. Anjô-ke no butôkai / The Ball at the Anjo House (Kôzaburô Yoshimura, 1947)

An end-of-an-era drama, the fall of a great family to the destruction of the nobility in the wake of World War II, this features the titular Anjo family struggling with a new order in which their old butler may come back to save them by buying their house - if a gangster who holds their debt doesn't beat him to it. This reminded me in many ways of other stories of great families in decline - The Magnificent Ambersons and Il gattopardo are probably the most obvious examples, but it's a little different too in taking place mostly over one evening, the night of the ball in question, the last held in the great house by it's longtime owners, in which their fates may be decided. This is a solid but to me not really spectacular film of it's type, notable mostly for the acting, in particular the performances of the Sesuko Hara and Yumeko Aizome as the two thirty-something unmarried daughters of the family patriarch. Hara is my favorite actress and while I wouldn't call this one of her very best performances or roles, it's interesting in that it seems to point the way to some of her great work with Ozu over the next 15 years - the loyal daughter trying to keep the family together, more concerned for her father's happiness than for finding love in her own life.

8. L'assassin habite... au 21 / The Murderer Lives at Number 21 (Henri-Georges Clouzot, 1942)

Fun comedy-crime pic - mostly comedy - that to my mind falls somewhere between Agatha Christie and Charlie Chan in tone, with Pierre Fresnay wonderful as the police inspector who infiltrates a boarding house to catch the murderer who leaves his card "M. Durand" pinned to each of his victims. I've seen this listed as film noir on some lists - I would never categorize it as such myself, and I think those looking for something hard-boiled or exciting aren't going to get it for the most part, though the climax has a few brief thrills, and the ending is reasonably clever if not that unpredictable to those who have seen a lot of thrillers. Lots of fun and beautifully shot - the opening murder sequence was probably fairly novel in it's day, in the use of POV - but certainly not one of Clouzot's best IMO.

9. Enemy Agent (Lew Landers, 1940)

This film on the other hand doesn't seem to be listed as noir anywhere, but I would say has more characteristics of the style than the Clouzot film, and while L'assassin strikes me as one of Clouzot's lesser works, this is almost certainly the best film from b-director Landers I've seen so far. It's basically a pre-war espionage film (think Hitchcock's Saboteur for the most famous contemporaneous example) in which a hapless young engineer working on government designs is accused of stealing plans, and has to prove his innocence - which of course in true Hollywood style means tracking down and capturing or getting evidence on the guy who's really behind it - one of his coworkers of course. This has plenty of crosses and double-crosses and surprises in it's hour run-time and while it is super-low-budget and shot mostly on poverty row sets, the cast heard by Richard Cromwell is surprisingly good and Landers zips through the action nicely, and the narrative makes at least a bit of sense. Not a first or maybe even second-class noir but certainly an above-average programmer and a nice surprise.
