Grün ist die Heide by Hans Deppe( Visual )

3 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the most typical examples of the genre known as "Heimatfilme" (homeland films), and immensely popular in its day. It is characterized by an intense nostalgia and an almost complete denial of the realities of life after the war, although it is mentioned that some of the main characters are refugees from eastern German lands (as were a significant portion of the film's appreciative audience) and there is some joking about servants who don't stay in their place! The plot is a collation of almost all the cliches of the genre, from the comic romances to the villainous thief who must be brought to justice by the hero (in such stories, for some reason, it is almost always a poacher captured by a forester). The setting is a sunny countryside where a couple of lovable vagabonds provide musical interludes, singing the title song "Grun ist die Heide" while strumming the musical instruments that they carry around from village to village, sleeping in the fields like true sons of nature (no mention of what they do in the wintertime). In short, this movie is extremely interesting as a glimpse of the mentality of its times."--IMDb

8 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kristina Söderbaum in Die goldene Stadt( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die Tochter eines deutschen Moldau-Bauern, durch das großstädtische Treiben in Prag verunsichert, vergißt ihren Verlobten und läßt sich mit einem leichtfertigen tschechischen Vetter ein. Sie kehrt schwanger in die Heimat zurück, wird vom Vater verstoßen und sucht den Tod im Moor. Harlan drehte ein optisch hervorragendes Melodram, in dem trübe Mystik, Blut- und Boden-Ideologie und die Diskriminierung slawischer Untermenschen eine unselige Verbindung eingingen. Auch die nach 1945 in den bundesdeutschen Kinos angebotene gekürzte Fassung konnte die NS-Tendenz nicht verleugnen." [film-dienst.de]
