the most entertaining movies of TR

Post by maxxx » 12 Jun 2004 16:42

well- there seem to more people intersted in warfare and propaganda, but maybe we can find a few friends of pure entertainment?

I want to make a list of the, let´s say, ten most entertaining german movies of 1933-45.
And keep propaganda stuff like "Jud Süss" and war movies please out.

Some of my favorites:

Der Mann der Sherlock Holmes war

Große Freiheit Nr.7

Münchhausen


(well as you see I like Hans Albers quite a lot :)

But feel free to add your personal Hans Moser, Willy Forst or Marikka Röckk- favorite!

Only seen- Münchausen - but enjoyed, not least 'the flight on the cannon-ball' - and in colour.

i liked the old one better than the remake by terry g. from the 90ies.

famous german writer erich kästner wrote the script. He was banned to write by the nazis, but goebbels wanted a really BIG ALL COLOUR movie to make "The Thief of Bagdad" look worse than germanys latest movie extravaganza (no other problem during the later part of the war?) So he looked the other way when the production hired kästner (under alias of Bertolt Bürger) to write the script.
