Liebelei is one of the earliest of the cinematic banquets directed by German filmmaker Max Ophuls. The film, set in imperial Vienna, concerns the romance between a young girl and a lieutenant. A powerful baron misreads the lieutenant's ardor, assuming that it is being directed towards his own wife. A duel follows which, no matter how it turns out, will spell tragedy for at least one of the characters we care about. The central character is portrayed by Magda Schneider, the mother of 1960s film star Romy Schneider

"Gustaf Grundgens plays the main roll in this theatre work by George Bernard Shaw, later to become famous as a musical. Professor Higgins teaches phonetics and observes other people with a professional interest in how they express themselves, as is the case with the flower seller, Eliza. He wants to carry out an experiment with her, making her completely into a "lady", who can carry her own in higher society circles and not betray her lowly social origins."--Unedited summary from distributor's website

Ohm Krüger by Hans Steinhoff( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This propagandistic epic, seven years in the making, was Goebbels' initial attempt to equal Gone with the wind. It is a heroic portrait of Paul Kruger, the Boer statesman who recounts his life story as he lay dying in a Swiss hospital. His sons, Jan and Adrian, voice opposing views concerning the validity of their father's struggles during the Boer Wars. Although their ideological debate is handled with some skill, the primary purpose of the film was to stir anti-British feeling. The villainous English incite the African tribespeople by distributing guns during a mission service and to the strains of "Onward Christian soldiers." They feed rotten meat to Boer women and children (in a scene extracted from Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin) and incarcerate them in the massive concentration camps they have established on South African soil. The viewer is informed that 26,000 women and children were murdered
