First 35mm fragment to ID

PostSat Apr 14, 2018 3:59 am

At midst of scanning the No. 30 entry fragment film featuring Hector ( Harry Baur ), which isn't finished yet. Beside that, I have unearthed three 80-90 ft fragments found in Austria and have released some frames for anyone to identify them. In this fragment, there is two guys and two ladies in close-up shots with German intertitles.

There's the sketched texts on the four frames of the 'Ende' intertitle as it readed :-

DER KURTI IST DER
PAT DER
WOLFI DER
PATACHON

This might help the better way to ID the whole film. Thanks. :)

Now, obviously the two guys are the Danish actors Carl Schenstrom and Harald Madsen, a.k.a. Pat und Patachon in German, and Long and Short in English. As for the film, they made so many...

Found! The film is a 1929 Schenstrom and Madsen vehicle directed by Lau Lauritzen Sr, entitled HØJT PAA EN KVIST.

if you follow the above link, there is a gallery of 104 stills, and the costumes and the two actresses are unmistakable.

Many thanks for the informations especially with the photos, allen john. Please confirm us whether if this film is preserved or not in any archival holdings. I might guess that it is storage very well due to Danish coldest weather climate.

I can't find information on whether the original version has been preserved. But the DFI website states that it was refashioned as a sound film in 1943; that version probably still exists, and has been the basis for a Television episode of the Pat und Patachon series in Germany: reedited versions of their features, with most irritating voiceover and absolutely no intertitle. It's available on the German 7 DVD boxset...

As, again, many thanks for this pixs. Well, I think that I will have to abandon this Danish film as reason of it's survival status therefore it has probably being stumped on Blu-ray or DVD available in Europe or somewhere.
