5.0 out of 5 stars Emil und die Detektiv(1931), 6 May 2013
This review is from: Emil and the Detectives [DVD] (DVD)
Emil and the Detectives [Blu]

I have seen this 1931 film many times and look forward to the UK Blu Ray that gives me the English subtitles as well. A fun film, which has survived in good quality, it has a music score by Jazz band Weintraub's Syncopators which included later film composer in USA Franz Waxman as pianist(then Franz Wachsmann). Weintraub took his band around the world later and made records in Italy & Japan. Later he settled in Sydney/Australia where he spent the rest of his life.

Seeing location scenes that were probably all lost by April 1945 is a bonus. The bad guy is actor Fritz Rasp who was in some noted pre-1930 German silent film classics.

The film was remade in Germany in the early 1950s(some other films from the early 30s were also remade at this time)in colour. The final scenes in that film were made at the original 1936 Olympic stadium in Berlin that survived the war. It was also remade again in the 2000s and both were/are on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming classic film, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Emil and the Detectives [DVD] (DVD)
Having read the easy reader (German ) version of the book Emil and the Detectives,it was fun to watch the original film. The film contained some very amusing comedy scenes. Also having visited Berlin it was very interesting to see Berlin as it appeared before 1939.

I would recommend this film to anyone interested in German culture or the works of Erich Kaestner
