Emil Jannings .Why be subtle about it


Recommended Posts

This is in the rules of talking about film and not  politics.Ben was rather too subtle about it .Emil was not only just in sympathetic to the Nazis.He was a German.He endrosed it and became a member of it .Like most Germans  he was not seeing the consequnces of their action.He thought that they were right.If he did not had cancer and did not die ,at the time ,he would of probably  been in horror for what he contribubted ,like many other Germans.It's when the american milltary came in and he showed the academy award,they told him that he could not be in any more movies .Although he did make it to the white list ,but his last film ended up being  a non important role.Do you think .if he survived  cacer  would he fend up doing some Heimat films of the 1950's? .Would he end up playing Paul horbingers role in the Black forrest girl ? One wonders.He  did  not care much ,He was a succeful Farmer Thank goodness  mail order  and on line servce that sell his film to see what he did His dark period  and last films..Many of his films except for one or two was light entertinment .It might of been three .Such a shamed that t.cm. decide not to explore more true dark cinema  anymore ,except our own .Unless were dealing with foreign   copy  rights .They have to ride out before t.c.m can premiere a Emil Jannngs film made in Germany  . There are emil Jannings films made before 1932, That t.c.m could show
