"Love letters from Engadin" is an interesting combination of Bergfilm (the short-lived category of mountain films, mostly from Germany in about 1925-50, displaying both the nature in mostly wintery Alps, and the lifestyles of local residents), and a romantic comedy with international scope, starting and finishing in London, and involving Americans, French, Italians as well.Like in many of his movies of the period, Luis Trenker has a dominant position as scriptwriter, director, and star, in the role of ski-teacher Toni Anewanter in a Swiss tourist resort, as well as sports winner in different skiing disciplines - and idol of female tourists. A hotel director wants to test this potential, by sending "love letters" to former pupils of Toni, asking them to come again, and greatest donate US$ 5000 for a fresh bob-sleigh track. Spam mail, we'd call it today.One of the recipients of the letters, an American woman in the process of marrying a King in London, breaks it up when overhearing that he is in financial problem and only wants her for the money. With her British mate Dorothy she travels to the undisclosed zone in Engadin (possibly St. Moritz or Davos). From here on, usual tribulations of romantic comedies ensue.And, of course, a lot of Bergfilm content: climbing snowy mountains, meagre life in a mountain cabin, falling into a glacier crevice, rescue squads with torches at night, a malfunctioning funicular... quite a bunch, but rarely pathetic or fully serious. The train chase (Toni wants to reach Dorothy who left on the Rhätische Bahn, Bernina Express - nice scenes of the train!) has some thrills, but most of all lots of slapstick that might befit a Buster Keaton movie. Fire brigade and chimney sweeper (somewhat) hot on his heels. Dorothy's powder-box is a prop well used in a number of scenes.All in all, an interesting and entertaining movie from a troubled time (Germany was just preparing for WW2 in 1938), more international, relaxed, peaceful than I would have expected. This can of course be explained with sales potential on international markets, and escapist fun for German audiences. DVD re-issue by e-m-s in 2004, with premium track "Ski Heil!", a 19-minute 1955 documentary by Luis Trenker (again) on ski tourism in the Alps. I purchased the DVD for 1 € at TeDi, which it is totally worth... :)
