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
Zur Chronik von Grieshuus ( visu )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
"Über dem trutzigen Herrensitz der Familie Grieshuus ziehen im 17. Jahrhundert dunkle Wolken auf. Der Lieblingssohn will eine einfache Jägerstochter heiraten, weshalb ihn das Oberhaupt schweren Herzens enterbt, will er das edle Haus doch eigentlich nicht dem habgierigen Zwillingssohn überantworten. Als der verbitterte Hausherr vor Gram stirbt, entbrennt ein Unglück und Tod bringender Kampf ums Erbe, der auch in der Nachfolgegeneration keinen Abschluss findet. Eindrucksvolles Ausstattungsdrama, das inszenatorisch wie darstellerisch exemplarisch das hohe Niveau des Unterhaltungsfilms während der Weimarer Republik aufzeigt. In der emotionalen Wucht an Fritz Langs "Nibelungen" erinnernd, wird die Novelle von Theodor Fontane auf sein blutiges Intrigen- und Rachespiel fokussiert und mahnt im Stil einer griechischen Tragödie den Kampf um das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung (in der Liebe) an. Der Film wurde 2005 restauriert und 2014 mit der restaurierten Originalfilmmusik von Gottfried Huppertz gekoppelt. [film-dienst.de]

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
