"Molières Gesellschafts- und Sittenkomödie vom Heuchler und Schmarotzer Tartüff, verlegt ins Preußen Friedrichs II.; F.W. Murnau ergänzt die bekannten Ereignisse durch eine stilistisch abgesetzte Rahmenhandlung und lässt sie dadurch als "Film im Film" erscheinen. So unterstreicht er seine Aussage, dass Heuchler überall sind. Virtuos hält der hervorragend inszenierte, filmhistorisch wichtige Stummfilm-Klassiker die Balance zwischen Komödie, Krimi und Kostümfilm." [film-dienst.de]
Der Kongress tanzt The Congress dances by Erik Charell( visu )
2 editions published between 1931 and 1990 in Undetermined and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The advent of sound film and the worsening economic scene spurred the production of escapist German musicals of which The Congress dances is considered one of the most memorable. This first film directed by Charell, whose career was in the theater, is set in Vienna during the Congress of 1814/1815 convened to conclude Napoleon's career. It has been described as "a pastiche of sweeping staircases, open air cafes, costumed balls and military parades ..." and was the most costly German musical to date. Lilian Harvey plays the beautiful Christel Weinzinger, a glove-seller who wins the heart of Czar Alexander who has arrived in Vienna to help determine Napoleon's fate. Harvey's "scintillating" performance earned her a contract, albeit a shortlived one, with Darryl Zanuck's Fox Studios

However, she eventually encounters a penniless young lieutenant and falls madly in love with him, as he does with her. Despite her best intentions of remaining with the colonel, and his intention to avoid trouble with his fellow soldiers, they cannot forswear this relationship, and tragedy is the inevitable result
Old Vienna ( visu )
1 edition published in 1931 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This is the English language version of a very successful operetta film made during the last throes of the Weimar Republic. 'Part of an increasingly opaque dream world that was to beguile the public', it is an exercise in romantic nostalgia set against the background of the Congress of Vienna (1914) and depicts the rich and powerful as human and approachable with politics as a game of musical chairs. The film was made in several language versions; in the English version Henri Garat replaced Willy Fritsch as Tsar Alexander
