Hokuspokus  (1953)  * with switchable English subtitles *

A case of murder is brought to court. The painter Hilmar Kjerulf is dead, and his wife Agda is accused of murder. The conviction of the murderous widow seems to be certain due to the evidence that has been compiled. However, in the night before the proclamation of the sentence, the president of the court is visited by a stranger, who seeks to prove with a complete chain of evidence that the president's friend Mr. Graham, who happens to be present, might have committed the murder as well. At the end of his speech, the stranger, who is obviously a talented conjurer, confesses to be the true murderer of the painter and disappears into the darkness. The next day in court, the conjurer reappears as the lawyer of the accused and apologizes for his nocturnal burlesque, which was meant to prove his argument. He then starts to dissect, with great pleasure, the burden of proof against the so-called spouse murderer. She, for her part, entraps herself in contradictions. 

Vor Gericht wird der Mord an dem Maler Hilmar Kjerulf verhandelt. Angeklagt ist seine Frau Agda, die von Valerie von Martens als strategische Naive voll von klugem Hintersinn gespielt wird. In der Nacht vor der Urteilsverkündung die Verurteilung der mörderischen Witwe aufgrund von zusammengetragenen Indizien scheint sicher erhält der Gerichtspräsident überraschend Besuch von einem Unbekannten, der ihm in einer lückenlosen Beweiskette demonstriert, daß sein gerade anwesender bester Freund Mr. Graham genauso gut auch sein Mörder sein könnte. Der fremde Besucher, offensichtlich ein begabter Zauberkünstler, bekennt zum Schluß seines Auftrittes der wahre Mörder des Malers zu sein und entschwindet in die Dunkelheit. Am nächsten Tag taucht der Zauberer als Anwalt der Angeklagten im Gerichtssaal wieder auf, entschuldigt sich für die nächtliche Posse, die seine Argumentation untermauern soll, und zerpflückt nun genüßlich die Beweisführung gegen die angebliche Gattenmörderin, die sich währenddessen immer tiefer in Widersprücheverstrickt. .


Roman einer jungen Ehe  (1952)  * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

The recent marriage between two actors in divided Berlin seems doomed to a quick failure. Jochen works at the Westend Theatre and Agnes performs for films in East Berlin. Shaped by the respective political set-ups in each half of the city, their conflicting views are leading them to drift apart. While Agnes is proud of the film she's starring in, Jochen is horrified of its plot. Eventually, the much-anticipated becomes reality: Agnes moves for good to East Berlin and appeals to the courts for a divorce. This, however, leads Jochen to seek a reconciliation with her. In the meantime, he's lost his job and is unable to find work, convincing him that Agnes' views are the right ones.

Lotna  (1959)  * with switchable English subtitles *

September, 1939: Lotna is a superb example of an Arabian horse and the pride of her owner. Too old to ride her, Lotna nevertheless remains faithful to her master. And like Lotna, the Polish cavalry is a superb example of an art of war, which instantly becomes obsolete with the German invasion of their neighbor. And despite their loyalty to Poland, their customs and their pride, they are brutally informed of their obsolescence in the face of fierce and swift attacks by the enemy's tanks. Lotna's fate in this new kind of warfare will become a metaphor for the confirmation of chivalry's end and its replacement by merciless and impersonal slaughter.

The battle takes place on December 13, 1939 and the British come out on top. The Graf Spee heads for the neutral harbor of Montevideo, Uruguay.

Rather than chance the loss of his men, the German captain orders the Graf Spee scuttled.

Attracted to Karen, Roberts invites her to his apartment where she learns his secret. The old philatelist is sent to a concentration camp, and then Karen learns that he is her father.

SKI PATROL  (1940)

When Viktor Ryder stops to help his rival and friend Ivan Dubroski, who has fallen during the running of the 1936 Olympic ski marathon, Ivan wins the race for the Russians, while Viktor places second for the Finns and Dick Reynolds takes third place for the Americans. Viktor returns home to Finland to celebrate the coming marriage of his sister Lissa to Paavo Luuki when a Russian bomber rains death on his Finnish village, killing Lissa. As war is declared between Finland and Russia, Viktor and his fellow townsmen are posted at a dugout on Salma Mountain, a strategic point that guards the pass, and there they are joined by Dick Reynolds and fellow skier Jan Sikorsky. As the enemy begins to tunnel and mine the mountain, Viktor runs the enemy lines on skis and reaches town. There, he sends Jacob Sorenson for reinforcements and falls in love with Julia Engle. Returning to the mountain dugout, Viktor realizes that the post is doomed unless the enemy mining can be stopped. Thus, fellow townsmen Birger Simberg, Dick, Jan and Paavo join Viktor on a suicide mission to blow up the entrance of the mine tunnel. On their mission, Jan dies a hero when he blows up a machine gun nest, Dick is wounded, Birger is wounded while saving Dick from sniper fire, and Paavo is killed while covering Viktor in his attempt to reach the mine entrance. Ivan, Viktor's Olympic rival and now a Russian soldier, is sent to intercept Viktor. Ivan overtakes Viktor, but is unable to shoot his old friend. After he allows Viktor to escape, Ivan carries his nitroglycerine back to Aranoff, his supervisor, as evidence that he has killed the Finn. Aranoff has witnessed Ivan and Viktor shake hands, however, and so he shoots Ivan, touching off the explosives and blowing up the tunnel entrance. His objective completed, Viktor returns to marry Julia and visit the graves of Paavo and Lissa.


Among the five new prisoners arriving at Dulag Luft, a German Interrogation center for captured American air crews, are wounded flier Ralph Cole; Capt. James N. Spencer, the pilot commander; First Lieutenant Frank L. Williams, the co-pilot; Cooper, a frightened, young flier; and Technical Sergeant Alfred Mason. The Americans were captured in Italy, where their B-99 crashed while on a sortie to destroy German communication lines, and the German commander is frustrated by the discovery that much of their equipment, including bombs and identification papers, has been destroyed. The Nazis know that one of the crew is missing, but have few leads on the identities of the five prisoners, other than a newspaper clipping about Williams' father, who is the founder of the New England League Against Nazism. Initial interrogations by the Nazis reveal that Williams is talkative, and that Macson is fiercely loyal to his commander. Hoping to get more information by breaking the will of the weakest prisoner, the Nazi commander sends Cooper to solitary confinement. Spencer, meanwhile, is interrogated by the Nazis, but he refuses to divulge any information beyond his name, rank and serial number. Herr Mahler, a Red Cross representative, asks Spencer to sign admission papers, but Spencer knows it is a trick and refuses to complete the form. The Nazi commander abruptly ends his interrogation of Spencer by calling him the "uncooperative type." Later, Williams carelessly discusses Cole's identity with a man who introduces himself as a fellow American, and who offers Williams his friendship. From his hospital bed, Cole is tricked by a German nurse, who, while presenting herself as a victim of the Nazi regime, manages to extract information from the wounded soldier. Cole foolishly tells the nurse that his unit is from the fighter base at Naples, Italy, and speaks freely about his military service. Later, the major uses Spencer's admissions to coax Williams into talking in more detail about the fighting power of the B-99 bomber. From the information extracted from the prisoners thus far, the Nazis conclude that the Allies intend to strike an industrial center in a populated area. Mason provides the Nazis with further information about the B-99 and the mission when the major engages the technical sergeant in an argument about the plane's capabilities. When the Nazi commander threatens to harm Spencer if Mason does not give him more information, Mason panics and tells him more about the Air Force mission, including the information that it is to begin the following day. With the help of Cooper's inadvertent admission that the bombers will be carrying incendiary bombs and delayed-action bombs, the Nazis deduce that the mission will be hitting one of three targets in Budapest, Munich or Belgrade. Only hours before the start of the planned bombing mission, the Nazis determine that the target will be a Munich oil refinery. The information given to the Nazis by the airmen proves fatal for American fliers, as German fighter planes intercept and shoot down twenty-eight Allied bombers. Back at an Allied base, an American officer lectures his fliers on the dangers of speaking to Germans, and uses the failed mission as an example of the consequences of talking too much.



Der Barenhauter  (1986)

The war is over and the soldier Christoffel has no future and no money. Despondent, he's about to blow his brains out when along comes the Devil, who offers him a deal: his pockets will always be full of money; but for seven years, he's not allowed to bathe, cut his hair or nails, and must sleep on a bearskin instead of a bed. If he fails to do any of this, he will forever be a servant of Satan. As a soldier, Christoffel often wasn't able to wash himself for weeks at a time and so sees these conditions as do-able. He accepts the deal. With his cares for the future apparently banished, Christoffel goes on his merry way, but after a short period of time, he finds himself lonely. At a festival, no girl wants to dance with him, because he looks dirty and unkempt (and stinks to high heaven). He tries to wash some of the dirt off himself in the rain, but this fails miserably. Soon, everyone's doing all they can to avoid him. Only at the king's court does he find some temporary semblance of friendship, but only because he's a lousy card player and loses huge sums to the king and his minions. When, after a bit, the royal attendants can no longer bear his stench, they attempt to steal his money and get rid of him. They discover, however, that his pockets are empty and assume he's lost all he had. Without further ado, they toss him out on his rear end.

Der Krieg ist zu Ende und der Soldat Christoffel hat keine Zukunftsperspektive und kein Geld. Er weiß nicht, was er machen soll und möchte sich erschießen; da begegnet ihm der Teufel. Dieser bietet ihm einen Pakt an: Seine Rocktasche wird immer voller Geld sein. Aber: er darf sich sieben Jahre lang nicht waschen, nicht die Haare und die Nägel schneiden und muss auf einem Bärenfell statt im Bett schlafen. Gelingt ihm nur eines dieser Dinge nicht wird er für immer dem Teufel verschrieben sein. Christoffel, der als Soldat sich wochenlang nicht waschen konnte, sieht das als lösbare Aufgabe an und nimmt die Bedingung an. Scheinbar den Sorgen der Zukunft entledigt, macht sich Christoffel auf den Weg. Aber schon nach kurzer Zeit wird er einsam. Auf einem Volksfest möchte kein Mädchen mit ihm tanzen, da er schmutzig und ungepflegt aussieht und offensichtlich auch stinkt. Im Regen versucht er sich den Dreck abzuspülen – ohne sichtbaren Erfolg. Überall wird er gemieden. Lediglich am Hof des Königs wird er für eine Weile mit Freundlichkeiten überhäuft, da er – als lausiger Kartenspieler – jede Menge Geld an König und Hofstaat verliert. Als sie seinen Gestank nicht mehr aushalten wollen, versuchen sie ihm sein Geld zu stehlen. Da man aber nur leere Taschen vorfand, glaubte man, dass er alles ausgegeben habe und schmiss ihn raus.

Putting his experimental educational methods into practice, he installs a kind of children's self-government, whose justice is in a big contrast to what is happening in the outside world. Right in front of the school, dozens of kids are dying or being killed every day and their naked bodies lie on the street unattended. Ghetto's mayor assures Korczak that the orphanages will be saved.

Weisser Flieder  (1940)


Once upon a time, the stocking manufacturer Hans Muth closed a contract with a competitor, the Rossler Firm, in which both enterprises would refrain from producing a patented “no-run” stocking.  After all, to make such a stocking would mean people needing to buy fewer of them and sales would certainly plummet.  Hans Muth Jr. now wants to back out of this agreement, since he believes his current business model is outmoded.  But he is met with fierce resistance from the Rossler Firm, where no one is interested in killing the contract.  So Junior attempts to bring about the cancellation by other means.
