Othello #

Released 2/8/1922

Description: Even without the benefit of sound, the 1922 German adaptation of Othello seems more operatic than Shakespearean. This may be due to the casting of Emil Jannings, to whom restraint and subtlety were strangers. Werner Krauss, of Cabinet of Dr. Caligari fame, is on hand as the duplicitous Iago. Appearing as the unfortunate Desdemona is Lea Von Lenkeffy, better known as Lya de Putti. Produced on an elaborate scale, Othello may not be real to the letter of Shakespeare, but is undeniably a smorgasbord of visual delights.

The Trial of Old Drum Reviews:

Unlike a previous viewer, I liked the narration by the "adult" hero narrating himself as a the "child" in the movie, it reminded me of "The Waltons" in a way. The film is somewhat reminiscent of "Old Yeller" or "Where the Red Fern Grows", both of which I highly recommend.Though the original trial of Old Drum was in 1870, the setting for the film is 1955; which more in the viewer audience can personally relate to. There are another differences between the true historical trial and the movie, in 1870 the dog was killed, and there were few trials and appeals. The dog's owner was awarded $50 (about $700 today) in damages.As the film is only inspired by the trial and not a historical documentary, you can play the film for what it is- a nice film with a historical reality behind it and some great acting situations.The DVD I have from Goodtimes has very interesting production scenes as well as the director's narration about how the film was made- both in the unique section on the disk. Some revelations about the filming, actors, scenes, sets,locations etc are quite interesting and a welcome premium on the DVD!


This is a family film set in 1950's rural America about a man whose Uncle presses sheep killing charges vs his dog Drum, starting not only a family legal feud but community discord as their city starts to take sides.This is formula movie that attempts to be very touching and sweet. Its largest weakness is that the only folks who should really act were Scott Bakula (Defense Lawyer), Ron Perlman (father/Drum's owner) and the dog. (John Shuck and Kathy Garver, "Sissy" from the original "Family Affair," as the Uncle and his wife, were okay.) The kids were not that nice (basically they looked like they were acting) and that's a trouble when the movie really revolves around them (Aaron Fors, who plays the bully Donny makes me think of what the actor Russell Crowe gotta have looked liked as a child, only with no talent but a lot of ham). Favourite line (spoken by the Prosecutor after Scott Bakula's Defense closing trial speech): "We'll be lucky if they don't lynch us." Favourite line spoken by Ron Perlman (after his son punches the bully): "Now making him your friend, that will be the difficult part."Cute enough to rent/buy used.


When I went to college at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg Missouri, the storyline of Old Drum was often said at a coffee house i frequented. Few years soon when this film came on the Hallmark Channel I made it a mission to watch...Sure it wasn't a very well made film but I couldn't support but smile watching in living color a storyline I had heard over and over again in my college years.
