A precursor to "Dodgeball: the Underdog Story"
25 May 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

In this German film directed by the Hungarian Zoltan Korda, the male lead in "Metropolis" has another big role. You will find that his histrionic temptation-angst defeatism arising from his choosing mindlessly between two women, and between the soft life and the workers' life, will be mutually and agreeably resolved by the women while he plays ball. The competition appears to be between two teams, The Average Joes and Globo Gym, or their equivalents, the two sports-clubs, but the winner is the game of dodge-ball, or fuss-ball or soccer or whatever it is they're playing on that pretty field.

It's a film of great silent-film photography, with cameras riding on trucks interspersed with radiant-eyed reaction shots.

The film was made in the summer of 1927 in Berlin. There is a scene where the underdog team of day-workers wonder how long it will take for them to save enough to build their own stadium. By their calculations, at the rate they are saving they won't have enough money to build a stadium until 1947... What a difference to those calculations the 20 years will make...
