For Calgary to Hitler


Recommended Posts

I enjoyed the documentary,but, It was disappointing that.cm did not further explore the Wiemar period .the only never before seen film they premiered was Faust .the rest are the same German films they have played over .Not enough choices .They could of premiered a film with Lilian harvey.A film that was screen play by Billy Wilder and Robert Siomak.Fortunately  i have been able to see these film without depending on t.cm,but, it would have been nice to have some of these films premiered  ,as part of this programs  U.c.l.a.  archive theater would of had this kind of variety and not just familiar .The problem is that t.c.m. is only serving  mainstream classic film fans with this programs .I have an inclination ,that,t.c.m. was using this documentary as a  part of  re promoting  the familiar for repeated big rating .Ratings before history .Those who are new to t.cm. won't under stand what i am saying cause i been viewing this channel since 1998.I am a fan of film history  as oppose to a t.c.m fan.The fan of what t.c.m has to offer.I am a fan of variety ,choices and diversity in the film of the 10's 20's 30's 40's  50's and so forth.I am a fan of modern diversity and variety of film art.I am a fan of to the bad side of film history as well as the god side .We variety,but, we too are large,although minority .We not only listen to Robert Osborn and Leonard Maltin,but also academic film journalist too.They are not making a living  with film  corps so they have non profit  views on film and it's history,while your non academic ones are promoting what's in the money only. :)

I agree with some of your sentiments, re: variety of early German titles shown should have been greater.

 

However, your thread title of "For Calgary to Hitler" throws things out of whack a bit.

 

The program was titled "From Caligari to Hitler", and a few Canadians will tell you that there is a distinct difference between Calgary and Caligari.

Yes, I don`t  know if the title of the thread was chosen in the same ironic manner that CaveGirl does, or whether the Op was using spellcheck, or if if the OP is suggesting that Canadians were Nazis.

 

In which case, let me assure the OP that Canadians joined WWII OPPOSITE the Nazis in 1939 - United states did not join the war until 1941. Not that they would not have joined the allies anyway, but I just point out to the OP that Calgary is in Alberta.

 

I live in British Columbia.  That is Canada.
