Der Flüchtling aus Chicago #

Released 1/2/1934

Description: Werner Dux, heir of the large vehicle company "Dux-Werke", is a gambler who has just been arrested in Chicago for shooting a cardsharper. While in jail, he learns from his mate Michael Nissen that his father has died recently. That means that the Dux-Werke are without a leader at the moment, for Werner's cousin Steffie, who is his co-heiress, is still too young to run the firm. In this situation, Werner convinces his mate Michael, who is an engineer by profession, to take over the firm as long as he is in jail and to pose as him. Michael agrees and is able to bring the firm up again. He even arranges a reliability use for motorcycles via Istanbul, Rome and Barcelona, which creates a large Turkish order for the company. When the true Werner escapes from jail and arrives in Germany, it looks as if the entire storyline is up to bust. But Werner needs money, so he convinces Michael to go on as before and hand over all profits of the firm to him.

Jánošík #

Released 1/2/1936

Description: Jánošík has been subject of many Slovak and Polish legends, ebooks and films. According to the legend, he robbed nobles and gave the loot to the poor. The legend were also known in neighboring Silesia, the Margraviate of Moravia and soon spread to the Kingdom of Bohemia. The current robber had tiny to do with the modern legend, whose content partly reflects the ubiquitous folk myths of a character taking from the rich and giving to the poor. However, the legend was also shaped in necessary methods by the activists and writers in the 19th century when Jánošík became the key highwayman hero in stories that spread in the north counties of the Kingdom of Hungary (present Slovakia) and among the local Gorals and Polish tourists in the Podhale region north of the Tatras.

The Indian in the Cupboard Reviews:

Forget reviews telling this is not as nice as the book. No movies are are a nice as the book! Watch this film with an 8 year old kid and you will see how nice the movie is.Thank you Frank Oz for a unbelievable film. The acting from the young kids is above average and the tearful ending just right for a young audience. Interesting to note Steve Coogan plays a miniature model come to life - something he repeats soon in his career in A Night At The Museum. Typecasting?The results are also very good. Remember this is 1995 when CGI was in it's infancy - but the miniaturisation of the cast is flawless.


I'm a sucker for great kids, not those snotty ones seen so often in movies from the '60s to the present. In here is a unbelievable neat-looking tiny kid, Hal Sardino, who is unusual in that this is the only film he ever starred in. To his credit, Scardino went on to live a "normal" life after this film, eventually going to college as a regular student like you and me with no celebrity status.The movie is anything but "normal," a fantasy about a young man who receives a cupboard that transforms tiny toy figurines - in this case, an Indian and then a cowboy. - into miniature real-life people. Every time he opens or closes the box with the figures in them, they change to either true or back to plastic.Scardino, who plays Omri," is fun to watch, if for no another reason than the nice expressions on his face. He has to be one of the most likable kids I've ever seen on film. Meanwhile, his greatest mate "Patrick" is the only villain, so to speak, only because he's a bit "defiant," as his mother labels him and he almost spoils everything for "Omri."It's a solid family movie that is fun for both the parents and children to watch at the same time. Both will receive a lot of entertainment out of it. With just a bit of profanity early on and a bit of obvious political correctness, there is nothing in here which could offend viewers. Critics didn't seem to care for it, so you know it truly was a nice, wholesome film....and fun to watch.


Why this film doesn't have an average of around 9 eludes me. It is a wondeful film. So well acted and with a very engaging story. This is a nice movie for the entire family. You'll love it. The lead actor - Hal Scardino - is such a natural. He's fully believable, as is his friend. The Indian is also wonderfully brought to life. How they made the unique results work so well back in 1995 (well... that was a while back for movie unique results anyway...) I don't know. I want we should see more warm hearted movies like this today.
