Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. See more »

Interesting French Comedy/ Drama
19 April 2013 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

This picture should go by its French title, "Mollenard", since in 2013 'Hatred' conjures up images of hate crime and blind hypocrisy. Mollenard is the name of the title character, a ships Captain without a moral compass. Any hatred conjured up by the alternate title is directed at any authority figure and, especially, his harridan wife. I would not call it a 'noir' because, without going into detail here, it does not meet noir criteria. Besides, it is too early in film history for such a label.

And so, I was not totally prepared for what was on the screen. I found it was a one-man show about a Captain (Harry Baur) who hated his wife and loved the sea. He was employed by a shipping company and was a gun runner on the side. It is a fascinating portrait of a man leading two lives, preferring the one that keeps him away from home. Approaching old age, he has become careless(carefree) and self-indulgent, and with a ruthless element in business dealings, which take place in Shanghai. This is the melodramatic part of the film, while scenes at home in Dunkirk are tinged with a great deal of humor, chiefly in exchanges between the Captain and his wife.

It is a tour de force for Baur, who was reputedly a renowned actor in 20's and 30's Europe. The contrast between the libertine Captain and his grasping, status-conscious wife (Gabrielle Dorziat) is a thing to behold. And the bond between him and his fiercely loyal crew is palpable. The film was shown at MOMA, NYC, 4/13. IMDb directors should note that running time was clocked at 105 minutes.
