DER GROSSE PREIS (1944)

Gustav Fröhlich, Otto Wernicke and Carola Höhn, Karl Anton
$9.99

Obermeister Kramp arbeitet neben seiner Tätigkeit in einem Autowerk fieberhaft an einer Idee für einen neuartigen Leichtmetallkolben. Als sein alter Freund Greininger in dem Werk angestellt wird, erzählt Kramp ihm stolz von seiner geheimen Erfindung, die kurz vor der Vollendung steht. Kurz darauf aber erleidet Kramp einen Herzanfall und muss zu einer Kur. Als er nach einigen Wochen voller Ungeduld zu seiner Arbeitsstätte zurückkehrt, muss er entdecken, dass Greininger die unausgereifte Erfindung gestohlen und als seine eigene verkauft hat.

Foreman Kramp has a little side-project next to his work at a car factory: he's feverishly trying to develop a new light-metal alloy piston. When an old friend, Greininger, is employed at the plant, Kramp proudly tells him about his secret invention, which is almost completed. Shortly thereafter, Kramp suffers an heart attack --- no doubt due to stupidity --- and has to go to a health resort. After a few weeks of impatience, he returns back to his workplace only to discover that his good buddy stole his idea and is selling it as his own. Real smart.
