DAS BAD AUF DER TENNE (1943)

Will Dohm, Heli Finkenzeller and Richard Häussler, Volker von Collande
$11.99

In dem Sittenschwank "Das Bad auf der Tenne", das im flandrischen Dorf- und Kaufmannsmilieu im 18. Jahrhundert spielt, sorgt Paul Henckels als Handelsmann Ule Sleeks für die Späße, hier kaspert er gerade mit der Bürgermeistersfrau (Heli Finkenzeller). Goebbels kanzelte den ersten Farbfilm aus dem Hause der Tobis-Studios als "ordinären Bauernfilm" ab. Zwar sei der Kostümfilm farblich gelungen, aber Regisseur Volker von Collande habe "völlig versagt", schrieb der Propagandaminister in sein Tagebuch. Von Collandes Werk, das am 30. Juli 1943 in Berlin Premiere feierte, erhielt dennoch das Prädikat "Volkstümlich wertvoll" - und Jugendverbot. Die katholische Kirche störte sich an zwei Badeszenen, in denen zwei Mädchen nackt von hinten zu sehen waren.

In this morals farce, "The bathroom on the Threshing Floor", which takes place during the 18th Century in a Flemish village and merchant milieu, Paul Henckels plays the trader Ule Sleeks and carries on with the mayor's wife (Heli Finkenzeller). Goebbels labelled this first color film from Tobis Studios an "ordinary peasant film". And while the costume drama was a colorful success, the director Volker von Collande "completely screwed up", according to the Propaganda Minister in his diaries. Von Collande's work, which premiered in Berlin on 30 July 1943, nevertheless received the designation of being "culturally valuable" ... and was promptly restricted to adult audiences. The Catholic Church had a fit about two of the bath scenes, where two girls could be seen naked from behind (but, ironically, had little to say about the "bath scenes" taking place at the same time in extermination camps to the East).

THERE IS A NEWSREEL ALONG WITH THE FILM, JUST AS GERMAN AUDIENCES MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN THE MOVIE WAS FIRST SHOWN (except this newsreel may not be contemporary to when the film was released).

DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH NO SUBTITLES (except for the Newsreel). APPROX. 82 MINS. + A 23 MIN. NEWSREEL COMBINED TOTAL. VERY GOOD FILM QUALITY OVERALL.  SOMEWHAT UNSHARP; BUT THAT AND THE PASTEL COLORS GIVE THE FILM A "CHARMINGLY RUSTIC" LOOK.
