German film reconstructed in the 1960s, years after the Nazis destroyed the original negative. Combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of "respectable" society.

A dashing thief called Mack the Knife gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of the beggars. When the outraged king sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life.

"Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With a palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema." -- container

1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gert Scobel introduces, in this program to honor Brecht, the musical social satire set in Victorian London, in which both government and underworld are portrayed as amoral and polluted by economic and political chaos. Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of the beggars, with the help of Mackie Messer and his gang, opens a bank in the belief that legal thievery is more profitable than larceny. In the end, Polly's father, Mackie, and the corrupt police commissioner become partners in the bank and mainstays of society

L'Opera de quat' sous Die 3 groschenoper by Kurt Weill ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the early years of the sound era film producers often made films in different language versions, using the same sets but different casts. Pabst's twin versions of The threepenny opera shot in German and French make absorbing viewing. Set in a shadowy, stylised and dreamlike Victorian London, the story of Mack the Knife and Polly Peachum is timeless and the combination of Brecht's satire and Weill's music is as fresh as ever

Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's The threepenny opera ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reconstructed in the sixties- years after the original negative was destroyed by the Nazis- G.W. Pabst's Threepenny opera remains a deliciously dark film adaptation of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's brillant musical. A master of atmosphere, Pabst combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of 'respectable' society. Foggy sets by Andre Andreiev and Fritz Arno Wagner's stunning cinematography pull us down into the seedy underworld of 1890's London. There a dashing thief called 'Mack the Knife' gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries the daughter of Soho's 'Beggar King.' When the outraged King sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life."-box
