The Illustrated Title
15 June 2008 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This very early film by Michael Curtiz is purported to be the sole surviving effort of his produced while he was still in Hungary. Hungary had quite a thriving film industry, but by the 1930s it was a purely domestic industry, some of the film community having gone to Germany -- among them Curtiz -- and later to the United States, while a goodly number wound up running the British film industry -- prominent among them the Korda Brothers and Emeric Pressburger.

This effort is an example of the 'illustrated text', the subject being a poem by Antal Farkas. This methodology was dying in other film centers by this time. Curtiz makes a good effort at it: his compositions are very modern, using objects to frame the action, instead of irising the screen; and if the actors seem overwrought, that came be laid at the feet of the subject, a socialist poem.

Curtiz' later employers, the Warner Brothers might have been annoyed to have this mentioned. Technique seems to overwhelm the subject, but the effects, including a fully tinted print, are quite striking.
