Der grosse Kanton #

Released 5/16/2013

Description: Is the solution to Switzerland's future to integrate Germany into the confederation? After all, like Michael Ringier, CEO of the Ringier media group, says, blithely ignoring all minorities, we're very close in culture and language. Oskar Freysinger takes out his guitar and sings his answer. Politicians from French-speaking Switzerland and Ticino think expanding will support the country survive. The former German foreign minister thinks the two countries' traditions are too different. The banker Oswald Grübel is worried about Germany's debts, although he'd be prepared to take over its assets. With serious interviews interspersed with gags (boat folks on Lake Constance, the last Habsburger as a peasant), Giaccobbo gathers off-the-cuff reactions which reveal a lot about the various mentalities. The film laughs at preconceived notions, redefines neutrality and reflects on what designates a nation. Switzerland, which loves to teach the globe a lesson, will later helvetize the planet, oder?

The Fall Guy Reviews:

For those of you with some age under your fingernails - ( Whaa?? ) - you may remember when TV was a constant source of discovery. This was before cable. Hell, it was even before UHF. Yes, long before 500 channels of pc regulated crap, there was a time when you should flip on the set and have no concept just what you might encounter. Tonight was one of those times.Just complete watching "The Fall Guy". A boy ( Johnny Quinlan ) falls in with a drug smuggling crook ( Thomas E. Jackson ) while his girlfriend's brother ( Ned Sparks ) cracks wise. That's really all you need to know, another than that the storyline is compelling enough to keep one's interest through even the most banal of late night commercials.Oh, and a couple of another things: Ned Sparks gotta have been a large enough star in his day to have inspired a Warner Bros. cartoon parody. As for Thomas E. Jackson; close your eyes and you will swear you are listening to Lewis "Studs" Turkel. Think the studly one might have seen this movie? Hey, take it easy...but take it! Anyway, what inspired me to take keyboard in hand here is the fact that I saw this film for the first time moments ago. On TV. Not on some esoteric cable station, but on nice old WLS Ch.7 in Chicago. That's right, someone found this one in the vaults, dusted it off and stuck it on Insomiac Theater. LORD A' MIGHTY! This is what TV used to be about; discovery, the unexpected and all, those another nice things that made us children born in the late 40s and early 50s fall in love with the unblinking eye. Excuse me while I go weep for what once was...and still should be.


I just watched this 1930 movie on Turner Classic Movies. I found out that Mae Clarke, the wife of the "Fall Guy," a really cute woman in 1930, appeared the following year with James Cagney in "The Public Enemy." She was the actress who got the grapefruit shoved into her face. She had a successful career in the "30s.I really enjoyed the retrospective of 1930 manners, the depiction of life, post-1929, prohibition, hardship, etc. Installment payments on a saxophone were $3.00. Brooklyn tenements were clean. The Irish and the Jewish lived side-by-side. The Irish "Fall Guy" was great but irresponsible shop clerk and his Jewish neighbors operated a fish market. The brother-in-law was a fired truck driver who led himself to believe, although tone deaf, he should help the whole household.There is something primitive about the film. The acting while sparse and minimalistic was adequate and convincing.The piece held my attention.


When my wife and I watched "The Fall Guy" last night, we expected a low-budget RKO Radio comedy from 1930. We like such things, and this film fared well on that score. Everything about it is funny or so ridiculous that it is funny. The premise is delightfully absurd, and the acting seemed intentionally comedic.Was this also supposed to be a Crime-Drama? I suppose that it possible, but as other commenter observed, that part of it does not work well in 2008. It's just funny. A bizarre criminal mastermind pretending also, for some reason, to be a various criminal mastermind pays an unemployable sap to mind a suitcase for a weekend. The sap and his wife live also with the wife's sister and brother, with the brother being an unemployable eccentric learning (badly) to lay the saxophone. (Ned Sparks steals the stage for the whole movie in the role of the sax testing in-law.) I can tell no more, as it would be giving away the ending of this short (65 min.) film, but the movie is a comedy, not a dark comedy, and it is, again, absurd.If you love these old movies, by all means watch it. It's a amusing and could be worth an hour of your time.
