Paracelsus( Visual )

4 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This large-scale tribute to the 16th-century Swiss physician/alchemist Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, commonly known as Paracelsus, was the second of three films directed by Pabst for the Third Reich and was shot at the Barrandov Studios outside occupied Prague. Paracelsus is appointed town physician of Basel and conflicts with reactionary academics and avaricious merchants to prevent the plague from overtaking the city. The hero embodies those attributes which appealed to the Nazi psyche - "a rebel hero cleansing Germany of ancient practices, anti- intellectualism ("Resolute imagination can accomplish all things," states Paracelsus) and the replacement of Latin (foreign influences) with the German language. The film is particularly noteworthy for the scene in which Death appears. In it, Paracelsus has succeeded in keeping the plague from infiltrating the town by having goods which a merchant attempted to smuggle in destroyed. However, the juggler Fliegenbein, attached to the caravan, manages to escape to a tavern where he starts the infection of the city in a brilliantly choreographed Totentanz (danced by Harald Kreutzberg) before Paracelsus who realizes that the city is doomed. At the completion of the macabre performance, the spectre of Death is seen with his scythe

3 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verfilmung des Bühnenstücks von Gerhart Hauptmann, die jedoch durch die Verlegung der Geschichte in eine andere Region nichts mehr von dem Naturalismus der Vorlage enthält. Das als Flüchtling auf einem Gut im Westen lebende schlesische Bauernmädchen Rose Bernd, zwischen "Trieb" und pietistischem Erziehungseinfluß schwankend, verstrickt sich, vom Begehren der Männer getrieben, in Schuld. Trotz einer gewissen Verflachung der Vorlage eine handwerklich und darstellerisch weit überdurchschnittliche Produktion im westdeutschen Film der 50er Jahre. [film-dienst]
