  • Girls in Uniform

    1931. Germany. Directed by Leontine Sagan. Screenplay by Christa Winsloe, F. D. Andam, from Winsloe’s play Gestern und Heute (1930). With Hertha Thiele, Ellen Schwanneke, Ilse Winter, Charlotte Witthauer. A critical hit upon its release in New York, Sagan's debut feature is set in a Potsdam boarding school for daughters of the aristocracy where iron discipline and frugality are the rule. In the November 1931 issue of Film-Kurier magazine, Lotte Eisner notes that the film “concerns everyone, because it broaches a humane subject unsentimentally…it has to do with humanity, the history of a system….” In German, English subtitles. 90 min.
