ICH WERDE DICH AUF HANDEN TRAGEN  (1958)  

Ines, a pianist, has fallen in love with the wealthy art dealer and widow Rudolf Asmus. She eventually marries him and moves into his villa near Rome. But rather than enjoying a life of art, love and riches, she's instead subjected to the hatred of the house nanny Anne and Rudolf's daughter, Nesi. While daddy was off galavanting around the continent telling the less secure what art they're supposed to find worthwhile, the nanny's been brainwashing his daughter to remember her dead mother as a near-goddess. It's only a matter of time before there's a confrontation. Anne is kicked out to pick up one of Mary Poppins' secondhand rejects and the child is put through a reality check.

 

Pianistin Ines verliebt sich in den reichen Kunsthändler und Witwer Rudolf Asmus. Sie wird seine Frau und zieht in seine Villa bei Rom. Dort schlägt ihr der Hass des Kinderfräuleins Anne und Rudolfs kleiner Tochter Nesi entgegen. Anne hat das Mädchen zu abgöttischer Liebe zur verstorbenen Mutter erzogen. Die Ereignisse spitzen sich zu, als Ines nach einer Konfrontation Anne entlässt und Nesi ausreißt.

 

ITALIENREISE – LIEBE INBEGRIFFEN (1958)  

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007889-italienreise-liebe-inbegriffen-1958.jpg

Young and attractive art historian Robert Florian works as a tour guide. During a bus tour of Italy, he gets to know the pretty and open-minded (translation: "self-absorbed") model Ilse Knopf. It doesn't take long before hormones do their job and the two are drawn to one another. But unlike Robert, who's single, Ilse has a fiancee. Rather than tell the disloyal hussy to hit the bricks, the fiancee stupidly chases her --- and the tour group --- through half of Italy, consumed by idiotic displays of jealousy. When the tour group arrives in Florence, the three protagonists of the film finally meet and it takes Ilse all the way to Rome to decide she's done with boy-toy Robert. Instead, she's going to stay engaged to the idiot, who'll no doubt end up losing half of everything he owns after a future "trip to Spain" and a rather messy divorce. On the bright side, he will have several photo albums filled with lots of blurry pictures of Europe flashing by as he chases the skirt.

 

Der junge und attraktive Kunsthistoriker Robert Florian arbeitet als Reiseleiter. Auf einer Bustour durch Italien lernt er das hübsche und aufgeschlossene Fotomodell Ilse Knopf kennen. Schnell fühlen sich beide zueinander hingezogen. Anders als Robert, der ledig ist, hat Ilse einen Verlobten, der schon bald von Eifersucht getrieben die Reisegruppe durch die pittoresken Städte Italiens verfolgt. Nachdem die Kontrahenten in Florenz aufeinander getroffen sind, fällt Ilse in Rom schließlich die Entscheidung die Beziehung mit ihrem Verlobten fortzusetzen.

 

EINE FRAU VON HEUTE (1954)  

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007890-eine-frau-von-heute-1954.jpg

Toni Bender is a young woman in postwar Germany who's learned to hold her own in the dog-eat-dog world she's confronted with for the first time in her life. In fact, she's managed to turn a simple fruit stand into a raging success in Munich's shopping world. One day, she receives the long-awaited news that her husband's coming home after a long imprisonment as a POW. When she goes to pick him up at the rail station in her own little delivery van, Heinz, her husband, is surprised to see how independent and diligent his wife's become in his absence. But when she ensures his return to his old career and is back on the track to once more becoming the renowned architect he once was, Heinz realizes that his wife is wearing the pants in the family now.

 

Toni Bender ist eine junge Frau, die zupacken kann und ihren ganzen „Mann“ steht. In der Münchner Großmarkthalle betreibt sie erfolgreich einen Obststand. Eines Tages erhält sie die ersehnte Nachricht, dass ihr Gatte aus der Kriegsgefangenschaft heimkommt. Mit ihrem eigenen kleinen Lieferwagen holt sie ihn am Bahnhof ab. Heinz Bender staunt nicht schlecht, wie tüchtig und selbständig seine Frau geworden ist. Als sie dann auch noch dafür sorgt, dass er in seinen erlernten Beruf zurückfindet und bald wieder ein gefragter Architekt ist, muss Heinz feststellen, dass seine Frau ihm über den Kopf gewachsen ist.

 

DAS VERLORENE GESICHT (1948)  

A clearly confused girl is found wandering around Stuttgart and can't be understood, because she's speaking in a foreign language. The police take her to some doctors, who eventually believe they're dealing with a Tibetan. Doctor von Aldenhoff takes the stranger in and begins to educate her according to western European standards. In her new home, the girl, Luscha, gets to know Robert Lorm, a rather well-travelled man, and falls in love with him. Eventually, she decides quite unilaterally that they're going to build a new home and life together. A plaster of paris mask of the girl's face is made for the doctors to keep as a remembrance of Luscha. But as soon as the mold is removed from her face, she suddenly seems to become an entirely different woman.

 

Ein offenbar verwirrtes Mädchen irrt durch Stuttgart und kann sich mit einer fremden Sprache nicht verständlich machen. Polizisten reichen sie an Ärzte weiter, die schließlich annehmen, dass es sich um eine Tibetanerin handelt. Die Medizinerin Frau von Aldenhoff nimmt sich der Fremden, genannt Luscha, an und beginnt, sie nach westeuropäischen Maßstäben zu erziehen. In ihrem neuen Zuhause lernt Luscha den weit gereisten Robert Lorm lieben und beschließt, mit ihm ein eigenes Heim zu gründen. Ein Gipsabdruck ihres Gesichtes soll als Erinnerung zurückbleiben – doch als man ihr die Maske abnimmt, scheint Luscha plötzlich eine komplett andere Frau geworden zu sein.

 

DER MANN AUS KANADA (1967)  

In this DDR TV-film, Inge Karsten gets an unexpected visit from a former school friend, Margit, now living in the West. She's even more surprised to hear that Margit's married to her stepbrother Herbert, who's long been regarded as missing and whom she almost completely forgotten. He had recently been seen in Canada. This sudden connection with the West is not only causing Inge some discomfort, but her husband Horst, too, who holds an important position in the NVA as a pilot. But unbeknownst to the two, the situation is more serious than they suspect. In reality, Margit's an enemy agent and the whole story's a fiction created by the West German intelligence service, which wants to woo Horst to their side and embarrass the DDR. If wooing doesn't work, however, their prepared to use force to get him to land his MIG in the Bundesrepublik and ask for asylum. In the meantime, East German intelligence has come across a number of encrypted messages being sent to someone in the DDR. Pretty soon, however, they're able to put together a connection between the messages and the Karsten family and to keep an eye on their comings-and-goings. With the help of one of their best men, the comrades in the East are able to cripple the nefarious plan.

 

Inge Karsten erhält unverhofft Besuch von ihrer einstigen Studienfreundin Margit aus dem Westen. Noch überraschter ist sie, zu hören, dass diese mit ihrem Stiefbruder Herbert verheiratet ist, der lange als verschollen galt und den sie schon fast vergessen hatte. Zuletzt hat er in Kanada gelebt. Die plötzliche Beziehung zum Westen stellt Inge und vor allem ihren Mann Horst, der einen wichtigen Posten als Militärflieger hat, vor Gewissenskonflikte. Die Situation ist sogar ernster als es auf den ersten Blick scheint. In Wahrheit ist Margit eine Agentin und die ganze Geschichte ein inszeniertes Spiel des westdeutschen Geheimdienstes, um Horst abzuwerben und dem Ansehen der DDR zu schaden. Man will ihn zwingen, mit seiner MIG in der Bundesrepublik zu landen und damit Fahnenflucht zu begehen. In der Zwischenzeit haben verschlüsselte Botschaften den ostdeutschen Staatssicherheitsdienst aufmerksam werden lassen und zugleich Rätsel aufgegeben. Bald kann allerdings ein Zusammenhang zwischen den Nachrichten und dem Fall Karsten hergestellt und das Vorhaben durchschaut werden. Mit Hilfe einer ihrer besten Männer gelingt es den Genossen schließlich, den Plan zu vereiteln.

Unable to bear the chaos any longer, the dean advises him to finally find a wife. Joachim thus heads into the city one night with a buddy and the two end up drunk in Nightclub Nachtfalter. It's there that Joachim gets to know the singer Stefanie Walden, who's as much a hit there as he is back at the boarding school. Soon, the two decide to end their "suffering" by presenting themselves to others as man and wife. Unfortunately, when morning comes around, the hungover bachelor forgets all about the plan and one misfortune follows after another from that point on.

Joachim lernt die Sängerin Stefanie Walden kennen, die dort ebenso begehrt ist wie er auf dem Pensionat. Bald entschließen sich die beiden, ihr Leid zu beenden, indem sie sich einfach gegenseitig zu Mann und Frau nehmen. Doch am nächsten Morgen kann sich der geplagte Mann an dieses Vorhaben schon längst nicht mehr erinnern …

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007893-die-nichte-der-frau-oberst-1980.jpg

The still quite young, female colonel -- who became a widow on her wedding night -- lives with two nieces on a small estate, which seems to attract all the young men from near and far to it like moths to a flame. But it's not only the nieces who have a reputation for being sly dogs, who are able to ensnare any man into their bed. The colonel, too, is quite the bawdy little thing and no man who approaches the nieces gets away without paying sexual dues to the colonel, too.

 

Die noch sehr junge Frau Oberst – in der Hochzeitsnacht bereits zur Witwe geworden – bewohnt mit zwei Nichten einen kleinen Gutsbetrieb, der Anziehungspunkt aller Junggesellen der näheren und weiteren Umgebung ist. Aber nicht nur von den Nichten hört man, dass sie es faustdick hinter den Ohren haben und jeden Mann gleich in ihr Bett ziehen. Auch die Frau Oberst soll keine Kost verachten. Kein Mann, der sich einer ihrer Nichten nähert, kommt ungeschoren davon: Eine Affäre mit Frau Oberst ist ihm sicher.

Orly Airport, the hub of fate before the gates of Paris. It's there that the big world becomes small; and the pretty, young girls at the information desks help make that happen by providing information about the whole world for all who ask. One of those pretty girls is Michele. She lives for those short hours of happiness when the TWA flight from New York to Rome makes its stopover in Paris, bringing her Captain Eddie Mueller, the plane's captain. One day, he brings her a wonderful ring ... an engagement ring! Michele's uncle, Albert Petit, is not at all happy about her plans to marry the American. One simply doesn't marry someone one barely knows, let alone someone who spends most of his time flying around the world! In addition to all that, Albert has his own worries: he's been working in the airport's freight department for the last fifteen years. He's never had any trouble before, but now, there's some stupid affair regarding some package and his job's on the line because of it.

 

Flughafen Orly, Drehscheibe der Schicksale vor den Toren Paris - die große Welt ist klein, und den hübschen jungen Mädchen am Auskunftschalter des Flughafens liegt die ganze Welt gleichsam zu Füßen.

Sie lebt von den kurzen Stunden des Glücks, wenn die TWA New York-Rom eine Zwischenlandung hat, denn sie bringt ihr den Captain Eddie Müller, den Flugkapitän dieser Maschine. Eines Tages bringt er ihr einen wunderbaren Ring mit - als Verlobungsgeschenk! Micheles Onkel, Heinrich Petit, ist mit ihren Heiratsplänen gar nicht einverstanden. Man heiratet doch nicht einen Mann, den man kaum kennt und der dauernd in der Welt herumfliegt - aber er hat selbst den Kopf voller Sorgen. Seit 15 Jahren arbeitet er in der Luftfrachtabteilung. Noch nie ist etwas vorgekommen und nun muß ihm diese dumme Geschichte mit dem Paket passieren!

 

UND FINDEN DEREINST WIR UNS WIEDER  (1947)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007898-und-finden-dereinst-wir-uns-wieder-1947.jpg 

In the Spring of 1945, a group of German students, brought up in and pedagogically manipulated by the Nazi regime, find themselves in a Westphalian camp for citizens evacuated from threatened war zones. Blinded by the ideal of "For Fuehrer and Fatherland", the boys are raring to get to Berlin to help defend the capital against the advancing Red Army. On the way, they are confronted with the horrors of war; especially when one of their own is killed in an air raid chasing after a dog.

 

Frühjahr 1945 hält sich eine Gruppe deutscher Schüler, aufgewachsen und pädagogisch manipuliert unter dem NS-Regime, in einem westfälischen Evakuiertenlager auf. Geblendet von dem Ideal “Für Führer und Vaterland” büxen die Jungen dort aus, um nach Berlin zu gelangen und die Hauptstadt gegen die anrückende Rote Armee zu verteidigen. Unterwegs sehen sie sich mit den Schrecken des Kriegs konfrontiert und ein erster von ihnen stirbt, als er während eines Bombenangriffs einem Hund hinterherläuft.

 

DER EISERNE GUSTAV  (1958)

 

Aging coach drive Gustav Hartmann finds himself pushed aside by the newly invented automobile and decides to drive his coach from Berlin to Paris. Neither weather nor sickness can stop him. Accompanied by a reporter, he soon becomes a celebrity. Cities and villages give him an enthusiastic welcome. But when he gets to Paris, it seems no one can be bothered to acknowledge his existence anymore. Why? Because the transatlantic flier Lindbergh has just landed and France and is now the toast of the continent.

 

Der alternde Droschkenkutscher Gustav Hartmann sieht sich durch die neuen Automobile ins Abseits gedrängt und beschließt, mit seiner Kutsche von Berlin nach Paris zu fahren.

Als er jedoch in Paris ankommt, scheint sich niemand mehr für ihn zu interessieren. Alles redet nur noch von dem Atlantikflieger Lindbergh, der gerade gelandet ist.

 

THE PRISONER  (1955)  * with switchable Spanish subtitles *

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007901-the-prisoner-1955-with-switchable-spanish-subtitles-.jpg 

The Prisoner is based on the experiences of Hungarian cardinal Joszef Mindszenty in everything but name. That the story wasn't attributed to him is due to the wish of the script's writers to make clear that the events shown not only could have applied to almost any religious figure of authority in Eastern Europe at the time, but did indeed take place in practically every country under communist control.

 

At the conclusion of a mass, a beloved Catholic cardinal is arrested under the watchful eye of a political commissar, the Interrogator. Before leaving the cathedral, the cardinal tells a priest to remember that any confession the Cardinal reportedly makes will either be a lie or the result of human weakness. Brought before the Interrogator, the cardinal recognizes him as a member of the former royal family and a resistance fighter. The Interrogator acknowledges the cardinal's reputation as a resistance hero, then informs him that although the government views the church as insignificant, it's to be discredited through him just the same. Over the next several days, the Interrogator keeps the Cardinal awake in his cell by keeping the light constantly burning and interruptions by guards frequent. The cardinal refuses to sign a pre-written confession and when brought before the Interrogator, refuses all offers of food or drink. The trial date is eventually set and while an anxious crowd watches, certain the Cardinal will never break, they are crushed when he admits his entire life as a priest has been false, that his life was driven by ambition and lack of humility. He agrees to having betrayed the resistance and to having accepted money from foreign countries to create a secret arsenal. The Cardinal refuses to ask for the mercy of the court and collapses, pleading for God's mercy. He's sentenced to hang and the Interrogator expresses regret at the efficiency of his work.

Steve MacKendrick, nicknamed "Canada" because he claims to be from there, volunteers in 1940 for the British Army's paratroop school. He obviously has a good deal more experience and leadership skills than he lets on. Canada tries to become better acquainted with a pretty parachute rigger named Penny Gardner. She's initially put off by his attitude, but they eventually start dating. Both Penny and his new commander, Major Snow see potential (and a mystery that does not add up) in him, despite his strong efforts to avoid assuming any responsibility. Canada turns down Snow's offer to send him to officer school. After completing parachute school, Canada's unit goes on a raid on the German radar station at Bruneval.

UN GRAND AMOUR DE BEETHOVEN (1936) * with switchable English and Spanish subtitles *

1801, Vienna. Two of Beethoven's pupils are in love with him.  Therese de Brunswick's love has remained unrequited, even though she and Beethoven have been engaged for years. Beethoven's real love is reserved for Juliette Guicciardi, but she's married a count; and by the time she comes to regret that move, Beethoven and Therese have become engaged. When Beethoven loses Juliette, he moves to a mill at Heiligenstadt. When he realizes he's losing his hearing, a profound depression sets in. Tempted by suicide, he rejects it in favor of continuing his work, a dedication to which is assisted by Therese and others. In his later years, he'll not only have to contend with the ironic disability, but with an ungrateful and thieving nephew; poverty; the isolation caused by his deafness; and the love of friends and admirers.

 

WALPURGIS NIGHT (1935) * with switchable English subtitles *

 

On Walpurgis Night, people gather around bonfires and in restaurants to celebrate the coming of Spring. Johan Borg has booked a table for two, hoping to pour new spirit into his dying marriage. He longs for children of his own, but his wife Clary opposes it. In fact, she has planned to undergo an illegal abortion this very afternoon - without her husband's knowledge. Because of this she refuses to spend the evening with him. Johan then invites his secretary Lena to celebrate Walpurgis Night with him at the restaurant. He explains to her that his marriage is over. Johan and Lena have a wonderful evening together and fall in love. Meanwhile the police have spotted the illegal abortionist. Clary is weak after her abortion, but escapes just before the police arrive. A small crook finds some evidence for Clary's illegal abortion, and tries to blackmail Clary and Johan. When Johan refuses to pay him more than 5.000 crowns, he attacks Johan. In the turmoil the crook loses his gun, Clary picks it up and shoots him. It's an act of self-defense, but Johan and Clary are shocked and try to erase all evidence of the deed.

 

THE GREAT CONSOLER (1933) * with switchable English and German subtitles *

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007915-the-great-consoler-1933-with-switchable-english-and-german-subtitles-.jpg 

In America in 1899, Bill Porter - the 'great consoler' of the title, is in prison. His writing skills earn him privileges from the governor and he is spared the inhumane treatment meted out to other prisoners. Porter is aware of the brutality around him but, mindful of his better conditions, refuses to write about prison life, preferring instead to console his less-well-treated companions with excessively romantic fantasies, in which good invariably triumphs over evil. Seen as a not-so-subtle criticism of Stalinism, the film was denounced at the 1935 Communist Party conference, effectively ending Kuleshov's career.

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007917-night-riders-1981-with-switchable-english-subtitles-.jpg 

Two men of principle face each other. One is backed by a whole, however poor, village; the other by the law. It's a conflict that reaches it's climax in the closing shoot-out.

Michal Docolomansky as the horse smuggler and Radoslav Brzobohaty as the customs officer from Prague meet in Holly's Night Riders in a western-like confrontation set in the insecure years of the newly founded Czechoslovak Republic.

The woman turns out to be Marie-Louise Riviere, a divorced Parisian, who's recently arrived in town to open a fashion boutique. It won't be easy: a very good, local company's been keeping the competition away.

In spite of her reserved attitude towards him, Armand actually begins to fall in love with her ...

After five years, the marriage of chemist Dr. Herbert has become so routine, that his wife Karin sees no other choice but to leave her husband, even if she still loves him.  She retreats to her parents’ place and takes a job in her father’s factory, while Herbert begins a battle with the adversities of everyday life.  Karin gets to know the charming Viktor at work, a boyhood friend of her husband, who falls in love with her at first sight.  He knows full well, that she’s just come from a failed marriage, but doesn’t know with whom she was married.

 

Nach fünf Jahren ist die Ehe des Chemikers Dr. Herbert Hartung so sehr in Routine erstarrt, dass seine Frau Karin keinen anderen Ausweg mehr sieht, als ihren Mann zu verlassen – wenngleich sie ihn noch liebt. Sie zieht zu ihren Eltern und nimmt eine Stelle in der Fabrik ihres Vaters an, während für Herbert ein Kampf mit den Widrigkeiten des Alltags beginnt. Bei der Arbeit lernt Karin den charmanten Viktor kennen, einen Jugendfreund ihres Mannes, der sich auf den ersten Blick in sie verliebt. Er weiß zwar, dass sie gerade aus einer gescheiterten Ehe kommt, ahnt jedoch nicht, mit wem sie verheiratet war.

Headwaiter Karl Knesebeck practically runs the spa hotel "Hovelmann" since the owner is sick.  And when the owner ends up dying, her slick nephew Alwin takes over the top job.  Niddy, the deceased's niece, whom Knesebeck looks after in a fatherly fashion, falls in love with the ne'er do well.  Since Alwin's convinced that Knesebeck can see right through his charade, he demotes the waiter to chief washroom attendant.  It is there that Knesebeck runs into an old friend one day, Claasen, the owner of an entire hotel chain.  Without further ado, Claasen buys the "Hovelmann".  Alwin loses his cushy job and Karl Knesebeck is made the managing director.  Now the two old men have only one wish:  to prevent a wedding between Alwin and Niddy.

Dort trifft er eines Tages seinen alten Freund Claasen, den Besitzer einer ganzen Hotelkette. Kurzerhand kauft Claasen das “Hövelmann” auf. Vetter Alwin wird entmachtet, Karl Knesebeck zum Geschäftsführer ernannt. Jetzt haben die beiden Alten nur noch einen Wunsch – die Hochzeit zwischen Alwin und Niddy zu verhindern.

DER 7. JUNGE  (1941)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0002/0002640-der-7-junge-1941.jpg

The year is 1800.  Leopold von Rockl and Ferdinand von Wangenheim, two lieutenants of the Guard with lively dispositions, from whom no lady is safe, leave the residence of the prince for a time ... and for good reason:  Leopold has begun an affair with Princess Gabrielle, the daughter of the prince, and he’s hoping that all the excitement about it will abate in his absence; Ferdinand is taking a trip to commercial adviser Krallinger, who hopefully is going to teach him some manners.  Unfortunately, it ain’t that simple:  Gabrielle follows Leopold while incognito and the three meet again at a ball.  What will Gabrielle do, when she finds out that Leopold is hot for Christine, Krallinger’s sister-in-law?

 

Man schreibt das Jahr 1800. Leopold von Röckl und Ferdinand von Wangenheim, zwei überaus lebenslustige Gardeleutnants, vor denen kein Rock sicher ist, verlassen für einige Zeit die Residenz des Landesfürsten - und das aus gutem Grund: Leopold hat eine Affäre mit Prinzessin Gabriele, der Tochter des Landesfürsten, angefangen, und die Aufregung darüber soll sich in seiner Abwesenheit etwas legen; Ferdinand reist indes zu Kommerzienrat Krallinger, der ihm seinerseits ein wenig Anstand beibringen soll.   Aber Gabriele reist Leopold inkognito nach, und so treffen sich die drei auf einem Ball wieder. Leider muss die Prinzessin erkennen, dass ihr geliebter Leopold in der kurzen Zeit ein Techtelmechtel mit Christine, der Schwägerin Krallingers begonnen hat.

 

7 OHRFEIGEN  (1937)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0003/0003519-7-ohrfeigen-1937.jpg

Young William Tenson MacPhab’s stock portfolio has crashed like the housing market in 21st Century Nevada and he’s lost a whole Seven Pounds  (now valued at about $ 11).  And like many an investor, who left his investment decisions in the hands of others, Tenson holds Astor Terbanks, a steel magnate, responsible for Tenson’s stupid investment decisions.  Through a trick, he manages to get an appointment with the steel magnate, but when the latter hears he’s only lost Seven Pounds, he has his stupid ass thrown out.  Now Tenson is bent on revenge.  Apparently having nothing to do with his life and suffering from some psychological problems as well as being stupid, he takes an ad out in the paper  (costing another four Pounds) threatening to give the old steel king seven slaps in the coming week to teach him a lesson in respect  (thank God he didn’t lose twenty-one Pounds, huh?).  Terbank’s daughter Daisy is horrified by this threat from the loon and does everything to protect her father  (except call the police).  It’s all in vain:  Her father gets slapped every day, and every day, it makes headlines.  Moral of the story:  when lunatics threaten you, because they lose pennies investing in your stock, sometimes, It’s best to buy them a Happy Meal and make them happy while they’re waiting for their medication to arrive in the mail.

 

Ein Kursverfall seiner Aktien ruiniert den jungen William Tenson MacPhab: Sein gesamtes Vermögen von sage und schreibe sieben Pfund hat er verloren! Tensons Meinung nach ist der Stahlmagnat Astor Terbanks für das Unglück verantwortlich. Durch einen Trick verschafft er sich einen Termin bei dem Unternehmer, doch als Terbanks hört, dass Tensons gerade mal sieben Pfund verloren hat, lässt er den armen Tropf hinauswerfen.  Jetzt sinnt Tenson auf Rache: Am nächsten Tag ist in der Zeitung zu lesen, Tenson wolle dem alten Herrn im Lauf der kommenden Woche sieben Ohrfeigen verpassen, auf dass er ein wenig mehr Respekt vor der Zahl Sieben bekommt. Terbanks Tochter Daisy ist entsetzt über diese Drohung, sie tut alles, um ihren Vater zu schützen – vergeblich. Täglich bekommt ihr Vater eine Backpfeife von dem gewitzten Tenson, und täglich macht die Presse eine Schlagzeile daraus.

 

12 MINUTEN NACH 12  (1939)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0001/0001045-12-minuten-nach-12-1939.jpg

A series of brazen diamond thefts is causing Stockholm to hold its breath.  The newspapers are talking about nothing else and no jeweler in the city feels safe anymore.  Even when the police are able to catch a “small fish” from the gang in its nets, they still aren’t able to catch the mastermind behind the crime.  One day, the ambitious law student Ingrid Barko, who has ambitions of becoming a detective, believes she has discovered, who this mastermind is.  After all, who else would be carrying around some of the stolen diamond rings on his person?  Ingrid follows the man and makes another astonishing discovery:  the renowned jeweler Anders appears to be in cahoots with the criminal!  

 

Eine dreiste Serie von Diamantendiebstählen hält Stockholm in Atem, über nichts anderes berichten die Zeitungen, kein Juwelier wähnt sich mehr sicher. Auch wenn der Polizei immer mal wieder ein "kleiner Fisch" der Bande ins Netz geht, gelingt es ihr nicht, den planenden Kopf hinter den Verbrechen zu schnappen. Eines Tages glaubt die detektivisch ambitionierte Jurastudentin Ingrid Barko, auf einer Auktion eben diesen Unbekannten entdeckt zu haben. Wer sonst nämlich sollte ganz nebenbei einige der gestohlenen Brillantringe mit sich herumtragen? Ingrid setzt sich auf die Fährte des Mannes, und sie macht eine weitere erstaunliche Entdeckung: Der renommierte Juwelier Anders scheint mit dem Verbrecher unter einer Decke zu stecken! 

 

13 MANN UND EINE KANONE  (1938)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0007/0007923-13-mann-und-eine-kanone-1938.jpg

WWI, on the Eastern Front:  a special artillery unit, consisting of 13 soldiers and a cannon is able to successfully hold back the enemy.  The position is betrayed to the Russian, however, and the cannon destroyed.  Every one of the 13 soldiers is under suspicion as being the traitor.  As every one of them is threatened with sentence of death if the traitor is not found, the camaraderie of the soldiers is put to the test.  They finally come to the realization that the betrayal must have taken place outside of the unit; and indeed, they are successful in finding the Russian spy, who looks very much like one of the men in the unit.

 

Erster Weltkrieg, Ostfront. Eine Spezialbatterie, bestehend aus dreizehn Soldaten und einer Kanone, kann erfolgreich den Feind aufhalten. Doch dann wird die Stellung des Geschützes an die Russen verraten und die Kanone zerstört. Jeder der dreizehn Männer steht nun unter Verdacht, der Verräter zu sein. Da ihnen allen die Todesstrafe droht, wenn der Verräter nicht gefunden wird, wird die Kameradschaft der Männer auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Schließlich gelangen sie zu der Auffassung, dass ein Außenstehender den Verrat begangen haben muss. Tatsächlich gelingt es ihnen, einen russischen Spion aufzustöbern, der einem von ihnen ähnlich sieht.

 

DER 20. JULI  (1955)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0001/0001017-der-20-juli-1955.jpg

German dramatic production about the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler's life by Klaus von Stauffenberg and the clique of conspirators intent upon a change of government five minutes to Midnight in wartime Germany.  True to the times, the actions and reasons of the conspirators are shown in a much more favorable light than reality would dictate.  Still, not historically inaccurate and entertaining.

 

Der dokumentarisch inszenierte Film berichtet über die Vorbereitungen und das schlussendliche Scheitern des Attentats auf Adolf Hitler am 20. Juli 1944. Nur zwei Zufälle – Stauffenberg wurde beim Schärfen der Sprengladung gestört, und im Gedränge des Besprechungsraums konnte er die Ladung nicht am günstigsten Platz abstellen – bewahrten den Diktator vor dem Tode. Schließlich verzögerten noch Unklarheiten in der Nachrichtenübermittlung die Auslösung des geplanten Staatsstreiches, bis Stauffenberg in Berlin eintraf. Nach Kriegsende erinnern sich ein Bauingenieur, der ehemalige Hauptmann Lindner, und eine Sekretärin Hitlers, Hildegard Klee, im Hof des ehemaligen OKW-Gebäudes in der Bendlerstraße an jene Tage.

 

24 STUNDEN AUS DEM LEBEN EINER FRAU  (1931)  * with switchable English subtitles *

After the tragic death from malaria of her beloved husband, the rich widow Helga Vanroh travels restlessly around various Mediterranean countries. In the luxurious surroundings of a hotel in Monte Carlo, Mrs. Vanroh keeps apart from society, until one evening she decides to visit the casino. There a young man attracts her curiosity and compassion. Sasha Lonay has again lost a fortune at the roulette-tables. In his desperation he ponders taking his life; but Mrs. Vanroh is able to dissuade him by offering him a hotel room, money to pay his debts - and her love. They spend the night together.  The following day, the couple travel to the mountains, where Sasha - overwhelmed by the beauty of life and her generosity - promises to refrain from gambling and to take the next ship sailing to Marseille to look for an honest job. He begs her to accompany him to Marseille in the evening, but Mrs. Vanroh is too afraid of commitment.  Alone again, she makes a final visit to the casino. Her efforts seem to have been useless:  Like a madman, Sasha has taken to the roulette-tables again.

 

Helga Vanroh ist über den Tod ihres Mannes nie wirklich hinweggekommen und hat sich ganz aus dem Leben zurückgezogen. Ihre selbst gewählte Einsamkeit findet eines Tages ein jähes Ende, als sie im Spielkasino einen jungen Mann kennenlernt, der wie sie eine verlorene Seele zu sein scheint. Diesem Mann, Sascha, steht das Unglück quasi ins Gesicht geschrieben: Einsatz auf Einsatz verliert er beim Glücksspiel. Fasziniert von ihm, folgte Helga Sascha schließlich in sein Hotel und kann den verzweifelten, jungen Mann im letzten Moment gerade noch vom Selbstmord abhalten. Beide vereinsamten Menschen finden zueinander, und Helga erkennt bald, dass er mehr für sie geworden ist – mehr als eine flüchtige Bekanntschaft, mehr als sie ursprünglich zulassen wollte. Sie verbringt mit ihm den folgenden Tag und stattet ihn schließlich mit finanziellen Mitteln aus, damit er von seiner offensichtlichen Glücksspielsucht fortkommt und weiterreist.  Der junge Mann verspricht angesichts des unerwarteten Geldsegens Helga daraufhin, in seine Heimat zurückzukehren. Doch Sascha ist schwach, und so muss Helga zu ihrer großen Enttäuschung erkennen, dass er am folgenden Abend wieder am Spieltisch sitzt, da seine Leidenschaft stärker als alle guten Vorsätze ist.

 

681 A.D. – THE GLORY OF THE KHAN (1984)  * with hard-encoded Bulgarian subtitles *

In 651 C.E.,  Khan Kubrat died and the Khazars accelerated their raids upon Great Bulgaria.  His five sons split the Bulgarian tribe and each led his to find new land where they could live in peace.  Khan Asparukh, the youngest son, went west and, after an arduous journey lasting for years, southward across the River Danube, into Moesia. In 680-81, in alliance with the Slavs, he inflicted tunning defeats on the Roman legions and forced the Byzantine Empire to recognize the formation of the new state of Bulgaria in the lands where it still exists today.  A spectacular epic, "Khan Asparukh" was made to celebrate the 1,300th anniversary of the founding of Bulgaria.  This edited version compresses the three-part film from almost 6 hours to 95 minutes.   Sumptuously filmed, with over 50,000 extras, the film narrates the history of these momentous events, from the fall of Great Bulgaria in the Asian steppes, through Asparukh's perilous trek west, and the decisive battles with the Byzantines.  The original film was seen by over 11 million Bulgarians, a stunning feat for a population of less than 8 million!

NAZI GERMANY:  WHW PROPAGANDA BOOKLET (DER FUEHRER UND SEIN VOLK)

SALE PRICE:  $ 7.99 til 31 Dec.  (was $11.49)

The Winterhilfswerk (WHW) was an annual drive by the Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (the National Socialist People’s Welfare Organization) to help finance its charitable work. Its slogan was "None shall starve nor freeze". It ran from 1933-1945 and was designed to provide food and fuel to Germans. The Hitlerjugend and Bund Deutscher Mädel were extremely active in collecting for this charity. Donors were often given small souvenir gifts of negligible value as a sign of appreciation for their donations. A typical such gift was a very small propaganda booklet about 0.8" wide x 1.5" tall. More generous donors would receive nicer gifts, such as lapel pins on a wide variety of themes. Each individual miniature book, badge, badge set or toy set was only available for two or three days of a particular collection drive. So the populace would be encouraged to donate the following week and thereby collect the latest in the series.

 

Each booklet is approximately 2 " x 1 3/4" and has anywhere from 32 to 36 pages with pictures and descriptions.
