Abraham Lincoln #

Released 11/8/1930

Description: Silent movie master D.W. Griffith's first talkie works as a companion piece to his classic BIRTH OF A NATION, providing a detailed biographical sketch of the 16th president. We see his birth in a log cabin, the tragic death of his first love, Ann Rutledge (Una Merkel), his debates with Douglas, his accepting of the presidency, the poor toll of the Civil War, and finally the tragic assassination at Ford's Theater. Griffith shows his usual meticulous attention to period detail, and the framing of the different vignettes has the feel of historical photographs come to life. Walter Huston is perfect in the game role, with a portrayal that subtly evolves from laconic, wizened rascal to noble elder statesman. This is a fascinating, worthy film, and an interesting historical document in and of itself.

While this infamous attack is a weak mission in Japanese and US history it wouldn’t have happened if the Japanese government had listened to Yamamoto in 1939 and searched for a more peaceful method to end their fight campaign, proving his many ominous presages of the outcomes of the attack to come true.

Description: This silent-screen classic, like many others produced near the end of the silent era, was both a theatrical extravaganza boasting an original orchestral score and an item which languished in obscurity for many years. When Carlo Piccardi took what was left of the score by Maurice Jaubert and re-created it, the existing footage was restored and paired with a fresh orchestral performance which was shown in Paris in 1988. The film's storyline concerns the travails of a girl who has been living quite comfortably as the mistress of a colonel in the Tsar's units in Russia. However, she eventually encounters a penniless young lieutenant and falls madly in love with him, as he does with her. Despite her greatest intentions of remaining with the colonel, and his intention to avoid problem with his fellow soldiers, they cannot forswear this relationship, and tragedy is the inevitable result. The game refers to a moving incident in the story, and translates as "the unbelievable lie of Nina Petrovna."

Un Taxi pour Tobrouk Reviews:

Storyline takes zone during 1942 in the Libyan desert at the crucial war in El Alamein, when the British finally defeated the German "Afrikakorps". But this is a French film so it deals with the Gratis French units who were fighting alongside the British.The primary story is quite easy : during a raid on a German supply dump, the French CO gets killed and the remaining members of the team have to create their method back to friendly lines. Along the method they lose their patrol vehicle but then capture an opponent truck, together with a German captain (Hardy Krüger).Lino Ventura, one of France's most popular actors, is the grumpy ex-prizefighter turned NCO (very close to his real-life personae). He was already a respected actor but this really launched him to French super-stardom. Also well-known singer Charles Aznavour co-stars, but movie's main reputation lies with its script and dialogues (a mix between comedy and tragedy) by Michel Audiard, who was the scriptwriter of countless another successful Frrench film classics (usually starring JP Belmondo or Jean Gabin).This fight film may not so be well known outside of France, but up to this day it remains a real French classic. French public TV select to air 'Taxi to Tobruk" on May the 1st this year, an necessary vacation in France.


This movie is simply one of the greatest I've ever seen about WW2. It shows, with several characters, several accurate words and in the overwhelming emptiness of the desert, the real face of war: total nonsense!The plot, which puts 4 French troops in the case of taking a German prisoner, together with his car, on a trip through the desert back to El-Alamein, is brilliantly written by Michel Audiard. The creator shows us how enemies, being held away from fighting, can learn to progressively appreciate themselves... or not. Irony and emotion just stick together along the entire movie to the end. True, human and disabused.I don't have anything more to say. Or just one thing: it's the fourth time I watch that film, it's the fourth time I'm caught by it until the last second!


At the beginning there are some brief biographic remarks about the main characters . As a sergeant , Theo Dumas or Dudu , who is presented at the begin of the movie as a former boxing winner of Europe (Lino Ventura , he was now winner of Europe of Greco-Roman wrestling in 1950) commands a group of French troops (Charles Aznavour , Maurice Biraud, and the Spanish German Cobos) escaped after destructing their unit . They then penetrate German lines going to El Alamein . The expedition gotta contend with warming desert , minefield , German patrols and a Nazi officer (Hardy Kruger) in the midst . The misfit group with a prisoner crosses the Libyan desert to rejoin his command after falling their regiment . Their objective is to avoid the Germans and somehow encounter Allied lines . As they travel through the desert , they search an oasis where is a German units and receive oil , thanks they impersonate Nazis .This is an enjoyable film about friendship , warlike feats , courage and nice feeling . Interesting screenplay by Michel Audiard and Denys de La Patellière based on a storyline by René Havard . The film broke box office records after bringing in a lot of cash at the box office during its opening weekend and was one of the top 5 grossing film of its year (1961) in France . Extraordinary acting for all casting , as Lino Ventura plays a sergeant and boxer in civil life , he's an experienced Brigadier who fought in Norway (Narvik) and another European scenarios ; German Cobos as a tough soldier who wishes difficult ways over the German prisoner ; Maurice Biraud as a doctor of the group ; the singer Charles Aznavour is a Jew-French and Hardy Kruger as an clever Nazi captain who lived longtime in Paris . The exciting storyline displays a quietly observant hero studio and light critical remarks about the French folks . It packages a nice number of haunting black and white photos by cameraman Marcel Grignon and appropriate musical score by George Garvarentz . This French/Spanish/West Germany co-production picture was well realized by Denys De La Patelliere (Rififi in Paris , Marco Polo) and helped by assistant director Pierre Granier-Deferre (Le Train) .The storyline is proceeded during the African fight , the happenings were the followings : Mussolini occupied Tobruk as part of his campaign to invade the Suez canal, but the British easy took it from him on January 21, 1941. Hitler sent Rommel and the Africa Korps to retake the town and after a siege of 242 days they entered the town in December 1941. In 1942, the British surrender the town because they required units to war the Japanese and Rommel retook Tobruk in June 21, 1942. Montgomery launched a successful contra-offensive vs the Germans that were defeated by Eight Units in the war of El Alamein which occurred in July, 1942. It was not until November 13, 1942 that Montgomery and his Eight units were able to safe Tobruk once and for Allies . Another movies dealing with the African campaign contain : ¨Desert rats (Robert Wise)¨ , ¨Tobruk ( Arthur Hiller)¨, ¨Raid on Rommel (Henry Hathaway)¨, ¨Rats of Tobruk (Terence Young)¨, and ¨Battle El Alamein (Giorgo Ferroni)¨.
