Kolberg is one definitely worth seeing and has been one of the more disturbing Nazi era films I've seen lately and I think it may highlight just how despicable some of these films were even without the overt anti-Semitism, although Kolberg does have a taste of that too. What appalled me was the apparent exhortations for the German people to die for 'the cause,' as if there wasn't going to be enough of that going around anyway. To be told to throw your life away for Nazism, especially at that point in the war, strikes me as barbaric, which I suppose was the hallmark of that regime so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

Looking forward to watching the accompanying documentary, or what little I can suss out between my tourist level German and French.

And where is the link to watch any of this streamed, I know that there is a stream for ARTE somewhere.

At least, Peña's show from Argentina can be seen live, for free and legally.

Here you go (I hope this is allowed, if not, feel free to delete):

https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/046356-000-A/verbotene-filme/

If you change the language to FR you can hear it overdubbed in French. I tried that but hearing two languages that I barely understand at the same time was a bit overwhelming. I got the gist of things but will try it in straight German now that I kind of know what's going on. In fact, I actually found myself getting more from the underlying German than I thought I would.

That said, it's pretty good (most of the film clips are absolutely pristine). It alerted me to a eugenics film (Ich klage an) that was totally off my radar that, courtesy of archive.org is now in the viewing queue.

Thanks, we can all use proxies in order to access the site. This week he is devoting the show to films directed by Manuel Antín (the interesting show is probably the one that will air on Friday).

Fernando's show can be seen here in real HD.

For fans of old German films there are quite a few gems coming up in December.

This Monday (9th) there is a whole evening worth sitting through. If you are watching German Arte then starting at 20:15 CET you can see The Blue Angel, Opfergang (another Veit Harlan Kristina Söderbaum production from 1944), Hitler's Hollywood (a 2017 documentary) then Touchez pas au Grisbi (1953 with Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura). If you are watching French Arte then the evening starts at 20:50 and is Touchez pas au Grisbi, The Blue Angel, Hitler's Hollywood, then Opfergang.

On the 16th on channel BR at 23:50 there is a showing of an early Max Ophuls film, his 1932 version of Smetana's The Bartered Bride.

On MDR on the 18th at 23:00 they have Sensationsprozess Casilla from 1938, which sounds as if it's as relevant today as the day it was made. The same evening, starting half an hour later but then repeated a few hours later at 03:25 Das Erste has a 45 minute documentary on 100 years of UFA.

On MDR again, at 12:35 on the 19th there is a remarkably bland sounding piece from 1940 called Liebesschule, starring the vile Johannes Heesters, which sounds like a poor copy of the sort of stuff Fanck was doing a decade earlier.

The on the very next day (20th) at 12:30 MDR is showing Quick, the film that rather unbelievably pairs up Lilian Harvey with Hans Albers. I think it's her worst film, but it's certainly worth a look.

That same evening Arte has Marcel Pagnol's 1938 film La Femme du Boulanger, at 20:55 in France, 22:40 in Germany. Their other film that evening will be Pelle the Conqueror.

On the 22nd the MDR lunchtime slot has Marika Rökk (and the vile Heesters) in Hallo Janine at 12:30 (the film on the 21st, for completists, is a dubbed version of Cat Ballou). Germany never came up with a half decent choreographer comparable even to the guys working as assistants in the big US studios, but this is probably their best effort at staging large musical numbers with lots of dancers.

The same evening at 23:25 they also have the 1936 version of Little Lord Fauntleroy, probably dubbed. Then at 7:00 the next morning they are showing the 1953 version of Erich Kastner's Pünktchen und Anton. It's not a great film but I only mention it because the next day, 24th at 7:05 they have the 1931, Billy Wilder scripted, version of Emil und die Detektiv which is great. And for comparison on the 26th at 12:45 they are showing the 1953 version of Emil, which opens with a truly bizarre scene of Emil and his friendsa rescuing a seal from the local pet shop and setting it free in a nearby river.

On the 26th again at 20:15, channel ONE has a modern dramatisation of the relationship between Kastner and one of the young actors in Emil who subsequently joined the Hitler Youth. Then at 23:20 they are showing Fritz Lang's M.

Finally, on the 31st Arte are showing (20:15 Germany, 20:55 France) Chaplin's Modern Times followed by Serge Bromberg's 2013 documentary La naissance de Charlot.

All the German stations mentioned above are public service channels. Das Erste and ONE are national, BR and MDR regional. You can pick them up anywhere in Europe on satellite; I'm not sure about on-line options. Here are a few links that may help.

What Happened with MDR? German Pre- or even after war movies have practically died out in German television. Best source long time ago was the Bavaraian station and the old television of the GDR..
