Erhardt the pedestrian
6 June 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Der letzte Fussgänger" or "The Last Pedestrian" is a West German movie from 1950, so this one here that runs for slightly under 90 minutes is already over 55 years old. And it stars Heinz Erhardt, the German comedy legend. he made films with focus on car drivers and bike riders and here he gives us his take on pedestrians. Or I should maybe say Wilhelm Thiele gives us his take as he is the writer and director. Some of Erhardt's work from that time was still in black-and-white, but this one here is in color. But enough about him now. His co-star here is Christine Kaufmann, who was only 15 or even younger when this was made and a really big rising star around that time. So German audiences got to see two of the most known faces of the 1950s and 1960s in this film. And I thought the duo had good chemistry in what could even be described as a road movie. Unfortunately, the script was not on par with their performances and there were really not too many interesting moments. It is 100% comedy, but as such I must say it has not aged too well. Oh well, comedy was not Germany's biggest strength around that time and this film is another example. I think Erhardt is really skilled and funny, but even he needs the right material to work with. I give "The Last pedestrian" a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
