Draai en Draai en Draai. Jy's My Hartklop. Gerhard Steyn. The film's trailer emphasizes Bette Davis' intensity as a vicious predator. It happens to show one of Savant's favorite stunts: a German officer is shot, spins, takes two steps down a flight of stairs, pivots once more to better position himself, and finally topples face forward over a balustrade.
You'd think he was a ballet dancer. The two-reeler flag-waving Technicolor short March On, America! We even see Lincoln from the short subject noted three films above. Some good laughs, but not the killer comedy of the earlier Bob Clampetts. The newsreel is like a gold strike for star-struck fans -- it's apparently raw dailies from some kind of personal appearance by a flood of stars in support of the war effort.
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy do a good gag with Hardy cramming himself behind the wheel of a Jeep, in character. The assembled celebrities laugh right along with a bunch of onlookers, including soldiers on guard. It's pretty darn priceless.
Watch on the Rhine is possibly the best known picture in this Davis stack, yet it doesn't hold up very well. Lillian Hellman adapted her own play for the screen with Dashiell Hammett and the result is two hours of patriotic speechifying. The original stage production was an anti-isolationist tract meant to shake the U.
Filmed two years later in the middle of the war, the movie seems like old news. Her house becomes a hotbed of intrigue when daughter Sara Davis returns from Europe after eighteen years, with a husband and three rather impossibly noble children. Kurt Muller Paul Lukas only seems to be a refugee as they limp in across the Mexican border; he's really a Victor Laszlo -like resistance fighter.
Kurt hasn't worked as an engineer in years, and when pressed by Fanny to account for himself, responds with the line, "I'm a professional fighter of fascism. Also in the family is another Farrelly daughter, played by Geraldine Fitzgerald.
She's married to a shifty German, Teck de Brancovis George Coulouris , a skunk who hangs around the German embassy looking for ways to make money through idle treachery. Sara talks about hardship, sacrifice and the necessity for Karl to get back into the fight now that his family is safe. The children harp on all day about the meaning of freedom. We're no sooner introduced to a roomful of Nazi officials and fellow travelers than they conveniently psychoanalyze one another. The writing may be good propaganda, but it's terrible drama, with sneering baddies like Henry Daniell and Rudolph Anders telling each other how ruthless and corrupt they are.
Good propaganda well, effective propaganda urges people to action, and Watch on the Rhine places the need to neutralize the Nazi threat above any other concern. Spoiler The final act has a cold-blooded murder, after which the Farrelly family unites in a cover-up. Fascist treachery excuses quite a bit, but it's more than a little disconcerting when our heroes make platitudinous speeches over a fresh corpse.
It sounds altogether too much like the self-righteous talk we'd hear later in the sixties, directed at anyone from political activists to kids with long hair. It's here in our homes, in our families The hero can commit any atrocity and still be heroic, so long as the victim is a despised Nazi.
Perhaps I should backtrack a bit -- Watch on the Rhine is relevant today after all. The film was directed by Herbert Shumlin, a stage man with liberal credentials Spanish Earth , The action is blocked rather rigidly but cameramen Merrit Gerstad and Hal Mohr come up with the occasional striking image. Subsumed into the ensemble cast, Bette Davis is given the obligatory scene where she dresses up to show that running from Nazis halfway across the globe hasn't robbed her of her beauty. The kids are all cute dialogue and noble gestures, and the end sees the oldest son already planning to return to Europe to fight Nazis with his father.
He addresses the issue of 'premature anti-fascism' and Hellman's next play, The Searching Wind. Dick also tells stories about other playwrights, like Arthur Miller. The extras begin with an eye-opening trailer for Mission to Moscow , the movie that assures us that Uncle Joe Stalin's purges are cleaning up corruption in the U. The newsreel is a silent remnant of a piece on the preparation of B bombers for raids on Germany.
The musical short Ozzie Nelson and His Orchestra is an odd show where Ozzie acts like Dagwood Bumstead, joins the Army and leads the band at the same time Deception is a modern-day triangle with Davis caught between her war-refugee lover Paul Henreid and the man who has kept her for several years, a brilliant, tyrannical composer Claude Rains.
