A COTTAGE ON DARTMOOR  (1929)

Joe works as a barber in a shop alongside manicurist Sally. He becomes infatuated with her and asks her out on a date; however, it's an awkward date and it's clear Sally doesn't feel the same way about Joe. Despite Sally's lack of interest, Joe's infatuation with her develops into an obsession. Meanwhile a regular client at the salon, young gentleman farmer Harry, begins to woo Sally, who is much more receptive to his attentions. The couple begin seeing each other and one evening, arrange to go to the local cinema. Unbeknownst to them, they're being stalked by the jealous and overwrought Joe, who sits behind them and is forced to witness their happiness.  Joe eventually rushes out of the cinema in despair.  The following day, Harry comes into the shop for his regular shave and manicure and Joe notices that Sally is wearing an engagement ring. A verbal confrontation between Joe and Harry escalates into a physical struggle, during which Harry is slashed by Joe's razor. Sally is convinced Joe deliberately tried to kill his rival and, following his arrest and trial, Joe is convicted of attempted murder. Vowing revenge on Sally and Harry, he's sentenced to a lengthy term of incarceration at the notorious Dartmoor Prison.

2 DVD SET:  PENSION SCHOLLER  (1930)  +  PENSION SCHOLLER  (1960)

Discounted set of the following two movies:

 

PENSION SCHOLLER  (1930):

 

Dr. Alfred Klapproth bekommt von seinem Onkel Philipp einen ansehnlichen Geldbetrag. Eigentlich zum Kauf eines Sanatoriums, doch Alfred braucht das Geld anderweitig. Als Onkel Philipp zu Besuch kommt, quartiert Alfred ihn in der Pension Schöller ein und behauptet, es handle sich um eine private Irrenanstalt.  Da die vermögenden Gäste durchaus ihre Schrullen haben, schöpft Philipp vorerst keinen Verdacht. Und da er gehört hat, dass man Verrückten nicht widersprechen darf, ist die Verwirrung schon bald komplett.

 

Dr. Alfred Klapproth gets a considerable amount of money from his Uncle Philipp.  The money was supposed to be spent on the purchase of a sanatorium; but Alfred has other needs for the money.  When Uncle Philipp comes for a visit, Alfred puts him up in Pension Scholler and asserts, it’s a privately run insane asylum.  Since the wealthy guests there certainly have their quirks, Philipp has no problem buying that.  And since he’s been told, that one should never contradict crazy people, the confusion is soon complete.

 

PENSION SCHOLLER  (1930):

 

Peter Klapproth verwandelt die Pension Schöller, die seinem Onkel, Professor Schöller gehört, der sie aber nie betreten hat, kurzerhand in eine “Klappsmühle” und führt als deren vermeintlicher Chefarzt dem Onkel die “Nervenheilanstalt” vor. Alles nur, damit der Onkel 20.000 Mark Startkapital für die zuschussbedürftige Anstalt herausrückt. Das allerdings braucht der leichtfertige Neffe zur Verwirklichung seines Traums, ein Jazzlokal zu eröffnen. Onkel Schöller riecht Braten, spielt aber mit und führt alles zum glücklichen Ende.

 

Professor Scholler was the last owner of Pension Scholler.  His nephew, Peter Klapproth, who has never set foot in the place, nevertheless transforms the place into a "mental hospital" and masquerades as its chief physician.  And why?  So his uncle will put up a 20,000 DM grant as start-up capital for the needy institution.  But the frivolous nephew intends to use the money to make his dream a reality:  to open a jazz club.  Uncle Scholler smells a rat, but plays along nonetheless and, in the end, it all leads to a happy ending anyhow.

MOLLENARD  (1938)  * with switchable English subtitles *

Captain Justin Mollenard works for a company that sells armaments to the Far East. After an eventful stay in Shanghai, where he and his cargo are the victims of a malicious attack, he returns to his hometown of Dunkirk. Mollenard receives a frosty welcome from his wife Mathilde, who resents the way in which he has neglected his family for so many years. Mollenard’s only wish is to get back to sea as soon as he can, but a sudden heart-attack leaves him paralyzed and entirely in his wife’s power …

 

THE SINGING BLACKSMITH  (1938)  * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

 

Moishe Oysher, renowned cantor and star of Yiddish radio, stars in this musical version of David Pinski's play, Yankl der Shmid.  Singing, dancing and flashing his eyes, Oysher gives a robust performance of a shtetl blacksmith struggling against temptation in order to become a Mensch.

 

VARASTETTU KUOLEMA  (1938)  * with switchable English subtitles *

Also known as Stolen Death, this thriller is set in Helsinki at the beginning of the 20th Century.  Using elements of German Expressionism, the film tells the story of Finnish resistance fighters smuggling arms in their fight to win independence from their Russian occupiers.  The film stresses the divided loyalties of Finland's bourgeois class, which was torn between the preservation of their privileged economic existence and the dubious struggle for an independent Finland.  Some critics have claimed that the film was also a thinly disguised protest against the rise of fascism in the county in the 1930s.  What political views the film's director held is not known.  Finland experienced a significant social split after its declaration of independence in 1918, when a bloody and very bitter civil war was fought between Reds and Whites.  The alleged allegorical indictments of class inequality and the suppression of free speech and political expression as displayed in the movie might lead one to conclude that Tapiovaara directed a film to mirror his own leftist ideas.  Nevertheless, his death in February 1940, at the age of 28, fighting against the Soviet invaders of his country, earned him an almost mythical status in Finland among fans of all political stripes.

 

KOL NIDRE  (1939)  * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Joseph Goldstein wants to be a rabbi when he grows up.  His classmate, Jack Grossman, whose father is rich, hates all the other kids and thinks they hate him.  And the two boys almost come to blows over Jenny Dorfman, the daughter of a poor, but devout, man.  A number of years later, things aren't too good.  Someone's about to try to end her life; but instead, she reunites with her family over the chanting of the solemn Kol Nidre, which marks the beginning of Yom Kippur.

 

MIRELE EFROS  (1939)  * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Mirele Efros, also known as "The Yiddish Queen Lear", is a sophisticated version of Ukrainian-born Jacob Gordin's work about honesty, decency and devotion towards family and community.  Mirele, a wealthy and pious widow, whose devotion to her children even goes as far as hand-picking her eldest son's wife, makes a tragic mistake in evaluating her future daughter-in-law as giving and pious.  Conflict ensnares the two in short order and a lesson about the value of piety is conveyed in the cautionary tale.

 

OPFERGANG  (1944)  * with improved English and Spanish subtitles * and improved film quality.

Re-recording of our original film with Spanish subtitles added; cleaning up and improvement of original English subtitles; and a better quality recording.

 

Die reiche temperamentvolle Aels aus dem Norden lebt am Hamburger Elbeufer. Neben ihr in einer Villa wohnt das frisch verheiratete Paar Albrecht und Octavia. Die Freundschaft zwischen Aels und Albrecht stört die Harmonie dieser Ehe nicht. Doch eines Tages bricht bei Aels ein altes Tropenleiden aus, sie fiebert, und weil sie ans Bett gefesselt ist, reitet Albrecht jeden Tag an ihrem Fenster vorbei und grüßt sie. Als aber auch er an einer Seuche erkrankt, übernimmt seine Frau Octavia diesen Liebesdienst und grüßt in seiner Reitkleidung die Kranke, um sie nicht zu beunruhigen. Doch die Ahnungslose stirbt an gebrochenem Herzen. Sie kann ohne Albrechts Liebe nicht leben – er erfährt es aus ihrem letzten Brief.

 

Aels, a rich and temperamental woman from the North, moves to Hamburg.  She lives in a mansion besides the newly married couple, Alrecht and Octavia.  The friendship between Aels and Albrecht does not disturb the harmony of this marriage.  But soon, Aels has a reoccurrence of a tropical disease, and because she is confined to bed, Albrecht rides by each day on his horse to her window and inquires as to her health. When, eventually, he gets sick with an epidemic, his wife takes over this dear service and greets Aels in her riding clothes, pretending to be Albrecht and comforting the sick woman, so as to not worry her about Albrecht also being sick. Aels, however, is not completely fooled and ends up dying of a broken heart. It turns out, she cannot live without Albrecht's love -something Albrecht only finds about from her last letter to him before her death.

 

DES TEUFELS GENERAL  (1955)  * with switchable English subtitles * and improved film quality.

Re-recording of our original film with switchable English subtitles added; cleaning up and improvement of original English subtitles; and a better quality recording.

 

Nach dem gleichnamigen Bühnenstück von Carl Zuckmayer erzählt der Film die Geschichte des eigensinnigen Luftwaffengenerals Harras. Harras steht dem Nazi-Regime nicht sehr positiv gegenüber: Dabei ist er viel zu offen und wenig vorsichtig. Bald wird er überwacht. Aber Harras lässt sich nicht entmutigen, selbst als man ihn vorübergehend inhaftiert. Doch zunehmend erkennt er – wir schreiben das Jahr 1941 –, dass er für eine verlorene Sache kämpft. Als er seinen Freund, Oberstingenieur Oderbuch, der die Produktion deutscher Sturzkampfflugzeuge sabotiert, verraten soll, wählt er den Freitod indem er sich in eines der manipulierten Flugzeuge setzt.

 

1941:  The Third Reich seems to be winning the war.  Luftwaffe general Harry Harras enjoys the good life as a highly respected technician and Berlin ministry/ HQ official.  However his outspoken critical attitude at social occasions awakens hopes in the opposition and suspicions in the Nazi party.  He suddenly finds himself approached and arrested by the Gestapo, who psychologically torture him.  Next, his position is threatened by technical aircraft trouble he'll be blamed for, but may result from sabotage.

 

AUFERSTEHUNG  (1958)

Der junge russische Fürst Dmitrij trifft als Geschworener vor Gericht die hübsche Jekaterina Maslova wieder, die er einst verführt und im Stich gelassen hat. Sie ist zur Prostituierten geworden und des Mordes angeklagt. Das bestürzende Wiedersehen mit ihr rüttelt Dmitrij aus seiner seelischen Lethargie auf; als die junge Frau zu langjähriger Zwangsarbeit verurteilt und nach Sibirien deportiert wird, versucht er alles, um ihr zu helfen.

 

The young Russian prince Dmitry is called up to jury duty and there meets pretty Ekaterina Maslova again, a woman he once seduced and then abandoned.  The girl, however, is not there as a fellow juror, but as a defendant.  In the interim, she became a prostitute and is now accused of murder.  This disconcerting reunion with his former lover shakes Dmitry out of his mental lethargy.  When the young woman is sentenced to life as a forced laborer and is deported to Siberia, he does everything possible to help her.

 

PENSION SCHOLLER  (1960)

Peter Klapproth verwandelt die Pension Schöller, die seinem Onkel, Professor Schöller gehört, der sie aber nie betreten hat, kurzerhand in eine “Klappsmühle” und führt als deren vermeintlicher Chefarzt dem Onkel die “Nervenheilanstalt” vor. Alles nur, damit der Onkel 20.000 Mark Startkapital für die zuschussbedürftige Anstalt herausrückt. Das allerdings braucht der leichtfertige Neffe zur Verwirklichung seines Traums, ein Jazzlokal zu eröffnen. Onkel Schöller riecht Braten, spielt aber mit und führt alles zum glücklichen Ende.

 

Professor Scholler was the last owner of Pension Scholler.  His nephew, Peter Klapproth, who has never set foot in the place, nevertheless transforms the place into a "mental hospital" and masquerades as its chief physician.  And why?  So his uncle will put up a 20,000 DM grant as start-up capital for the needy institution.  But the frivolous nephew intends to use the money to make his dream a reality:  to open a jazz club.  Uncle Scholler smells a rat, but plays along nonetheless and, in the end, it all leads to a happy ending anyhow.

 

AL ZOUGA TALATTASHAR  (1962)  * with switchable English and French subtitles *

This is the story of a man and woman, Murad and Aida, who meet, fall in love and get married.  Everything's going swll for love-struck Aida ... that is, until she discovers she's Wife Number 13.  Soon afterwards, she gets a call from a mysterious woman, who later meets Aida and is told that Murad is a womanizer of the worst kind.  As a result, she joins forces with his ex-wives to hatch a plot to force him to renounce his womanizing ways.  Murad is slowly deprived of sex and sleep and is slowly being driven over the edge.  Will Aida succeed in her plan to redeem Murad or will she end up just another notch on Murad's bedpost?  (Obviously, there's no such thing as alimony where Murad lives).

 

ANGELIQUE UND DER SULTAN  (1968)  * with switchable English subtitles *

Die schöne Angélique hat es auch in ihrem fünften Abenteuer nach einer Romanserie von Anne Golon nicht leicht im Leben. Ein sinistrer Kerl verkauft sie in Algier an den ebenso fragwürdigen Mezzo Morte, der Angélique dem Sultan von Mikenez überlässt. Die selbstbewusste Frau hat aber keine Lust, die willfährige Haremsdame zu spielen und widersetzt sich den Anordnungen ihres neuen Herren. Durch einen Zufall erblickt der Sultan eines Tages aber doch noch das Gesicht Angéliques, deren Schönheit ihn sofort betört. Jetzt ist er besessen davon, die Gesellschaft seines Neuzugangs im Harem zu genießen. Das sorgt natürlich für große Eifersucht bei der bisherigen Lieblingsfrau des Sultans. Darüber hinaus ist auch noch der heldenhafte Jeoffrey de Peyrac, Angéliques Ehemann, vor Ort aufgetaucht, um seine Frau aus den Fängen des Sultans zu retten.

 

In the fifth film of the series, we discover once more why having a beautiful wife can be a real pain in the rear.  Angelique is taken prisoner and is sold by a sinister pirate to an equally questionable Mezzo Morte, who intends to make a gift of her to the Sultan of Meknes.  But the self-confident woman has no intention of willingly playing the part of a harem girl and resists the orders of her new master.  Kept in isolation until she learns how to be a faithful servant, one day, the Sultan catches a glimpse of her face, the beauty of which immediately beguiles him.  Of course, as is the case with all the "Angelique" films, he becomes obsessed with enjoying the company of his new harem slave.  This naturally causes the other harem women to be jealous and fearful for their positions in the harem ... especially the Sultan's former favorite, now doomed to a future life as a can of dog food.  But fear not!  Heroic Jeoffrey de Peyrac, Angelique's on-again, off-again husband, will somehow find a way to defy death and impossible odds to (once again) save Angelique's life.  (Really, life as a celibate monk would be so much easier!).

 

RUKAJARVEN TIE  (1999)  * with switchable English and German subtitles *

June 1941.  The Germans and their allies invade the Soviet Union and Finland is determined to win back the territories taken from her by Stalin the previous year.  Lieutenant Eero Perkola is waiting for orders to lead his platoon into battle.  When they come, the men discover they are to go on a recon mission through the woods around Lake Lieksa to search for possible Russian defensive positions.  Resting in a newly-conquered village, the lieutenant runs into his fiancee, Kaarina Vainikainen, who is serving in the Womean's Auxilary Corps (the Lotta).  The platoon eventually moves on, but after some time, Perkola receives a terrible message.  And it is this message, which will endanger the lieutenant's platoon for the rest of their mission.  Also known under the title, Ambush.

GERMAN ARBEITSBUCH ISSUED IN SCHWARZWALDAU  (1918)

24-paged Arbeitsbuch issued to a 25 year old.  There are entries on 6 of the pages, terminating in the year 1925.  As can be seen in the scan, the bottom corner of pages 11-12 have a tear due to its sticking to page 13.

 

GERMAN ARBEITSBUCH ISSUED IN WALDENBURG  (1918)

24-paged Arbeitsbuch issued to a 15 year old.  There are entries on 4 of the pages, terminating in the year 1922.

 

GERMANY:  PERSONALAUSWEIS FROM OCCUPIED WIESBADEN  (1923)

ID card issued to a 43 year old woman residing in Wiesbaden, which was temporarily occupied by the Allies in the 1920s after the First World War.  If particular interest is the entry for "Nationality".  In spite of Germany having been unified since 1871, the woman's nationality is listed as "Prussian".  There is an ink stamp on the ID which reads "besetztes Gebiet" ("occupied territory").

 

POLAND:  PASSPORT AND INTERNAL ID FOR A CHILD  (SZAMOTULY - 1930)

40-paged Dowód Osobisty/Paszport issued in 1930 for a 7-month old child.  A stamp on the inside cover indicates that the passport was issued free of charge, because it was for a child.  The passport photo shows a cross through the face of the woman holding up the child for the camera, thus indicating that the document did not apply to her.  The child's city of residence was Zielona Gora (Gruenberg) and the passport was issued in Szamotuly (Samter).  There is indication in the passport that it will expire exactly one year later and is good for a trip to Germany and back.  There is a stamp in the passport from the church official of Falkenberg (near Neisse in Silesia) indicating the registration of the child on 16 April 1930.  There are also two visas for Germany.  Of the document's 40 pages, there are entries and stamps on 11 of the pages. The edges of the pages indicate some kind of oily substance spilled on this document.  However, it must have happened a long time ago, as theliquid has been completely absorbed by the pages and there is no oily smell to it.

 

Until 1928, these documents could be used as both an internal passport and for foreign travel.  However, they were quite expensive to obtain (100 złotych, which was $20.00 at the time in a country where the overwhelming majority of its 38 million inhabitants lived in rural areas and were quite poor).  Until 1928, it was not required to have an internal passport.  This changed when, in that year, a presidential decree made the personal ID available to anyone for only 90 groszy ($ 0.18) and which was valid as a national ID only. 

 

GERMANY:  DRIVER'S LICENSE  (HEPPES - 1934)

Driver's license issued to a 53 year old man in Hoxter.

 

CZECHOSLOVAKIA:  PASSPORT - LISHKA, JOSEF  (1935)

ITALIAN-OCCUPIED ALBANIA:  10 LEK  (1940)

 

NAZI GERMANY:  WHW PROPAGANDA BOOKLET (TAG DER WEHRMACHT - HUBERT BRINKFORTH)

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.

 

In honor of the Tag der Wehrmacht, the WHW put out a series of booklets in the Winter of 1942-43 with fallen heroes of the Wehrmacht, all Knights Cross Bearers.

 

Each booklet is 2 3/4" x 2" and have 7 pages with pictures and descriptions.

KENNKARTE #40 - SCHUTZANGEHORIGE BROMBERG  (issued 10 August 1944)

Kennkarte (Deutsches Reich) issued to a Pole with the remark, "Schutzangehörige (eingegl. Ostgebiete)", which indicated the holder was not a German national, but a "foreign" resident of the annexed Eastern Territories, which was the name given to that part of Poland incorporated into the Reich after the end of the Polish Campaign in 1939.  Such ID holders were considered "probationary" residents, whose privileges could be withdrawn at any time, if their behavior was not considered acceptable to Reich authorities.  In such cases, the revocation of the status usually led to expulsion into the Generalgouvernement, the "reservoir" remnant of the Polish nation under German jurisdiction or deportation into a concentration camp in extreme cases.

AUSTRIA:  TEMPORARY PERSONAL ID - HORZER, BARBARA  (1945)

Temporary, postwar ID card issued in Graz, Austria on 11 October 1945.  It should be noted, that while the British occupied Graz (and all of Steiermark) until the restoration of the Austrian state in 1955, it was the Russians who entered the city first and they were there when this card was issued (despite its issuance by local police in Graz.  While the amounts of rape, pillage and theft in occupied Austria never reached the level it did in eastern Germany, sexual violence against women in the soviet occupation zone of Austria harmed the reputation of the Red Army so badly, that Moscow felt the need to issue an order in September 1945 --- more than 3 months after War's end --- forbidding violent interrogations against Austrian citizens.  Throughout the rest of 1945 and 1946, the Soviet command tried, in vain, to prevent desertion of its occupying force and plunder by the rank and file of their Army.  According to Austrian police records for 1946, "men in soviet uniform", usually drunk, accounted for more than 90% of all reported crimes (American soldiers - 5 to 7%).  Nevertheless, Soviet overseers in their occupation zone resisted expanding and arming Austrian police.
