DAS EKEL (1939)

Hans Moser, Josefine Dora and Herma Relin, Hans Deppe
$10.99


Karl Sträubler, Spediteur und Weingroßhändler, ist ein echter Querulant. Was ihn zur Weißglut bringt, ist die Straßenbahn, denn genau an seinem Haus fährt sie um die Kurve und quietscht. Er macht Eingaben, will prozessieren, beleidigt das Gericht – ganz gegen den Rat seines Freundes Weichert. Dessen Sohn Heinrich liebt Sträublers Tochter Leni, doch als er um ihre Hand anhält, schmeißt ihn der Vater hinaus, denn Leni soll Ferdinand heiraten. Der wiederum liebt die Tochter des Friseurs Pitzinger.

Karl Straubler, expediter and wine wholesaler, is a real troublemaker. What really boils his blood is the tram, which drives right in front of his house and squeals as it turns the curve. He makes inquiries, wants to litigate, insults the court --- and all against the advice of his friend, Weichert. His son Heinrich is in love with Straubler's daughter Leni, but when he asks for his hand, her father throws him out, because Leni is supposed to marry Ferdinand. For his part, Ferdinand is in love with the daughter of the barber, Pitzinger.
