UFA films on Arte 11 Sept.

PostSun Sep 10, 2017 2:04 am

As part of a commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of UFA, the Arte channel are running two UFA talkies tomorrow night, 11 September.

At 19.15 Gluckskinder - with Lilian Harvey.
At 20.45 Titanic - the 1943 version.

(A revision of their website relatively recently has expanded information but it makes navigation a bit more difficult)

I wonder if we'll ever see Lillian Harvey's American fims made for 20th C Fox? I keep hoping....

They seem to have recast their schedule somewhat with the first movie now starting at 19.50 today.

Strange

While the Arte website offered the revised different timings shown above, the information still on the T.V. channel proposes the original timings for both of the UFA films :?:

The Blu ray of Titanic(1943) is due for release on KIno-Lorber soon. I just got the 1944 Agfacolor Opergang this week(Blu ray) and the restoration is brilliant with a noiseless soundtrack. The masked ball sequence is unbelievable in its color and costume design. Unfortunately they don't have subtitles on the film.

The Arte HD broadcast print shown of Gluckskinder was simply beautiful, with deep blacks and remarkable depth of field. It was run with both French and German soundtracks, but no available subtitles.

Titanic was pretty good too, especially the scenes in the salon, but was only offered in German language, with no available subtitles, not even French.

Both were Murnau foundation restorations, as was Baron Munchhausen which was also transmitted yesterday.
