  • Einmal eine grosse Dame sein

    1934. Germany. Directed by Gerhardt Lamprecht. With Käthe von Nagy, Wolf Albach-Retty, Gretl Theimer. This is a satirical look at German class-consciousness and status seeking. Lamprecht’s directorial career spanned from 1921 to 1958, and his most well-known films were Emil and the Detectives (from an early Billy Wilder script) and Madame Bovary, starring Pola Negri. Perhaps even more memorable was his role as a film historian; he produced the definitive catalogue of German silent films, published by the Deutsche Kinemathek, and his collection of documents formed the basis of the Kinemathek’s research material.
