ESPOIR (1945) * with switchable English subtitles *

Werner Jacobs Writers: Curth Flatow (screenplay), Curth Flatow (story) | 1 more credit » Stars: Caterina Valente, Rudolf Prack, Ruth Stephan

Filmed in 1939, but not released until after the end of the Second World War, this movie dramatizes the horrors of the Spanish Civil War in 1937 Teruel. The underdog Republicans try their best to hold out against the fascist attackers of General Franco, but while they have high morale, they don't have much of anything else.

This version of the film appears to be 20 minutes shorter than the original put out in Spain (and 10 less than the French version).

DVD-R is in Spanish with switchable Engish subtitles.  Approx. 68 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
