LIEBE IM RING (1930) * with switchable English subtitles *

Max Schmeling, Renate Müller and Olga Tschechowa
$13.99

Max, der Sohn einer Obsthändlerin, wird bei einer Varietévorstellung von einem Boxmanager als Naturtalent entdeckt. Nachdem er seine Fähigkeiten trainiert hat, kann er die ersten Erfolge als Ringkämpfer feiern.

This silent German film is a generally agreeable effort to transform heavyweight boxing champ Max Schmeling into a movie star.  It's the old saw about an up-and-coming pugilist who ignores his loyal girlfriend in favor of a wealthy adventuress.  His new romance nearly wrecks the hero's career, but with the help of his friends -- and of course, his real sweetheart -- he makes a spectacular comeback.  The final scenes show Schmeling and his new bride heading for America, which was evidently Mecca so far as pre-Hitler German filmmakers were concerned.  Max Schmeling's leading lady in Love in the Ring is Olga Tschechowa; in real life, he married the equally popular actress Anny Ondra.
