PEER GYNT (1934)

Hans Albers, Lucie Höflich and Marieluise Claudius, Fritz Wendhausen
$9.99

Peer Gynt can be considered as a bittersweet play about a Norwegian anti-hero.  Peer Gynt is the son of the once highly-regarded Jon Gynt.  Jon Gynt spent all his father's money on feasting and living lavishly, until there was nothing left; thus, Jon had to go from his farm as a wandering salesman, leaving his wife and son behind in debt.  Åse, the mother, wished to raise her son to wield and restore the lost fortune of his father, but Peer is soon to be considered useless for practical tasks, somewhat of a poet and a braggart, not unlike the Norwegian youngest son from the fairy tales, the "Ash Lad", with whom he shares some characteristics.
