Theater 1 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1), T1
1930. Germany. Directed by Marie Harder. Screenplay by Herbert Rosenfeld. With Hermann Vallentin, Anna Sten, Ivan Kowal-Samborski, Wolfgang Zilzer. Films directed by women were a rarity in Weimar cinema, so it’s unfortunate that Harder (who also distributed films for the Social Democratic Party) is virtually unknown today. She recieved critical acclaim for this realistic, unsentimental portrait of a man suffering through Germany’s dire economic situation. Courtesy of Deutsche Kinemathek. Silent. Approx. 68 min.
