Lubitsch before his big breakthrough
29 June 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a 42-minute movie from almost 100 years ago. i also saw that there are version that run for almost an hour. I watched the shorter one that has the same runtime like this title on IMDb. Basically, it is all a big show for Ernst Lubitsch. He is writer, director and lead actor here. It is mostly a comedy, even if there are some romance and drama references here and there. If you look at the year 1916, you will not be surprised that this is a silent movie in black-and-white. Pinkus is the name of the lead character and Sally was also still a common name for guys back then. He dreams of getting his own shoe palace. Will his dream come true? Well, at least Ernst Lubitsch's dream came true as he made it from Germany to Hollywood and received several Academy Award nominations and a Honorary Award shortly before his untimely death at 55.

One of the two writers for this short film here is Hanns Kräly who worked with Lubitsch on several projects and also won an Academy Award for writing one of Lubitsch's films. Lubitsch and Kräly were also very prolific actors. I personally believe that "Schuhpalast Pinkus" occasionally shows us already the talent of its protagonist and what he may come up with in the decades after this. Definitely very developed for a man in his early 20s. Yet as a whole, i would not recommend this film here. I believe in terms of silent black-and-white movies the Americans (Keaton, Chaplin, Lloyd, Laurel&Hardy) are still the best.
