René Deltgen
German postcard by Film-Foto-Verlag, nr. A 3756/1, 1941-1944. Photo: Star-Foto Atelier/Tobis. Rene Deltgen (1909-1979) was a theatre and film actor from Luxembourg, who spent most of his career in Germany. As the unscrupulous adventurer or charming lover he became a popular star in action and adventure films of the Third Reich. During his long career he appeared in more than 70 films. Renatus Heinrich Deltgen was born in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg; in 1909. From 1927 he attended the Schauspielschule Koln (the acting school in Cologne) and here he learned to speak the German language accentless. From 1929 on he got regular engagements at the city theaters in Cologne and Frankfurt a.M., and the actor Eugen Klopfer brought him to Berlin where he soon became a popular actor in classical productions among others at the Volksbuhne. Deltgen made his film debut with Das Madchen Johanna/Joan the Maid (1935, Gustav Ucicky). His attractrive appearance and his intensive performance soon led to hero roles in action and adventure films like Kautschuk/The Green Hell (1938, Arthur Maria Rabenalt). In her study Nazi cinema as enchantment: the politics of entertainment in the Third Reich (2004), Mary-Elizabeth O'Brien writes that: “Kautschuk tells the story of how the British broke the Brazilian monopoly on natural rubber (caoutchouk) and contains many hallmarks of German adventure films of the late 1930’s. (…) Kautschuk was marketed as a sensational and historically accurate portrayal of one man’s heroical battle to win natural resources for his country.” By the time Deltgen starred in Kautschuk with Gustav Diessl, he had already become a star as the ‘vigorous daredevil’, a maverick who went after whatever he wanted and teetered on the edge of death. He played a spy who met his heroic death with a smile in Port Arthur (1936, Nicolas Farkas) with AdolphWohlbruck (aka Anton Walbrook), and Achtung Feind hort mit!/Beware! The Enemy Is Listening! (1940, Arthur Maria Rabbenalt), he played a fortune hunter in Kongo-Express/ Congo Express (1939, Eduard von Borsody) and Brand im Ozean/Fire on the Ocean (1939, Gunther Rittau), and a courageous soldier in Urlaub auf Ehrenwort/Furlough on Word of Honor (1937, Karl Ritter) and Fronttheater (1942, Arthur Maria Rabbenalt). Deltgen’s roles called for a combination of strength, daring and self-sacrifice, which made a highly sumpathetic and representative hero of the Cinema of the Third Reich. Rene Deltgen was a popular star of the Third Reich and he enjoyed official support. At the ceremonies surrounding Hitler’s fiftieth birthday in 1939, the fuhrer honoured Deltgen with the title of Staatsschauspieler (National Actor). Besides his action roles he could play other characters now and then. In the crime drama Die drei Codonas/The Three Codonas (1940, Arthur Maria Rabenalt) he was an artist who was broken by his conflicts, in Das grosse Spiel/The Big Game (1942, Robert A. Stemmle) he played a soccer player and in Wen die Gotter lieben/The Mozart Story (1942, Karl Hartl) he impersonated Ludwig van Beethoven with Hans Holt starring as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. After the war Rene Deltgen first had to earn his living as a chef de cuisine and as a horse trainer at a circus for the time being. When he teamed up with actor Karl John for a cabaret show he could work on stage again and he performed for the allied troops. Engagements at at the Stadttheater in Constance in 1946 and the Stadtischen Buhnen in Cologne in 1947 followed before he was offered a film role again in 1949. He played the inwardly torn actor Stefan Gorgas in Nachtwache/Keepers of the Night (1949, Harald Braun) starring Luise Ullrich and Hans Nielsen. Nachtwache was the winner of the Golden Palm Award at the Cannes Film Festival. This part was soon followed by the melodrama Tromba/Tromba, the Tiger Man (1949, Helmut Weiss) with Angelika Hauff, in which he played a circus tiger trainer, who utilizes hypnotism to keep his beasts in line, and this works so well that he also begins mesmerizing women to do his bidding. Rene Deltgen played many successful film parts during the 1950's. He appeared as the Soviet secret agent officer Kazanow opposite Ivan Desny in Weg ohne Umkehr/No Way Back (1953, Victor Vicas, Beate von Molo), which won the Bundesfilmpreis 1953 and a Golden Globe Award as best Foreign Film. He also appeared as Furst Ramigani in Fritz Lang’s double films Der Tiger von Eschnapur/The Tiger of Eschnapur (1959) and Das indische Grabmal/The Indian Tomb (1959). In these films he played once more the earlier cliche role of a brutal, cynical go-getter. Among his other films were Das letzte Rezept/Desires (1952, Rolf Hansen), Unter den tausend Laternen/Under Thousand Lanterns (1952, Erich Engel) with Michel Auclair, Der letzte Sommer/The Last Summer (1954, Harald Braun) starring Hardy Kruger, and the drama Hotel Adlon (1955, Josef von Baky). During the 1960's he also worked often for television and he became a
PER QUE VAl LA PENA SER VISITAT: Son molts els encants d'aquest Parc Nacional pero el seu principal senyal d'identitat correspon als mes de 200 llacs o estanys, als impressionants cingles de "Els Encantats" i als seus caracteristics meandres d'alta muntanya (les aiguestortes). Es un veritable paradis per als amants de la natura: llacs, torrents, cascades, torberes, tarteres, agrestes pics i frondosos boscos de pi negre, avet, pi roig, bedoll i faig, constitueixen la llar de multitud d'interessants plantes i fascinants animals d'origen alpi o boreal. Per als amants dels valors naturals i culturals Vegetacio: El Parc Nacional d'Aiguestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici presenta una gran diversitat biologica. S'han descrit 1.471 especies vegetals, de les quals el 7,8% son endemismes pirinencs, a mes de comptar amb un 14,5% d'especies de distribucio estrictament boreo-alpina o artic-alpina. Fongs, algues, molses i liquens enriqueixen encara mes aquesta privilegiada regio del Pirineu. Respecte a la fauna, el Parc Nacional ha estat declarat per la UE, ZEPA (Zona d'Especial Proteccio per a les Aus) el 1988 per la presencia de les seguents especies: trencalos, lagopodo alpi, perdiu xerra, gall fer i gralla de bec vermell. A mes, alguns endemismes notables, tant de vertebrats com d'invertebrats, lligats als habitats d'alta muntanya ben conservats, viuen encara a l'interior del Parc Nacional. Els boscos de faigs (Fagus sylvatica) son bastant extensos a la ribera de Caldes, i formen petits bosquets a l'obaga de Sant Nicolau. Acompanyant aquests boscos trobem altres arbres com els avellaners (Corylus avellana), salze cabrum (Salix caprea), bedolls (Betula pendula), boix (Buxus sempervirens) i algun grevol (Ilex aquifolium). Com que es tracta de boscos molt ombrivols, hi ha poques plantes que puguin creixer. Tot i aixo, creixen algunes especies com la Pulmonaria (Pulmonaria affinis) i la convalaria (Convallaria majalis). Pel que fa als boscos mixtos de caducifoli, aquests se situen en els vessants mes humides, principalment on no poden creixer altres boscos perque el sol es molt pedregos o perque es una zona d'allaus. Tambe es possible observar-los en els clars dels boscos de coniferes. L'arbre dominant es l'avellaner (Corylus avellana), i esta acompanyat del moixera de cacadors (Sorbus aucuparia), el bedoll (Betula pendula), el freixe (Fraxinus excelsior), el salze cabrum (Salix caprea), etc. Des de 2006 forma part del Conveni RAMSAR de zones humides. Fauna: La diversitats d'animals que conviuen en aquest Parc es molt nombros: Aguila marcenca, aguila real, mussol noi, esquirol, li senglar, la sargantana iberica i roquera i el teixo, entre ors molts. Cultura: La historia de la gent i dels pobles de l'entorn del Parc ha estat estretament lligada des de sempre a les caracteristiques geografiques d'aquesta zona de muntanya. L'Edat Mitjana representa un despertar cultural sense precedents amb l'arribada de l'art romanic. Aquest fet historic ha permes l'existencia d'un patrimoni artistic unic i perfectament integrat en el paisatge que l'envolta. La vall de Boi alberga un dels conjunts monumentals d'art romanic mes importants d'Europa i el mes complet i esplendoros dels Pirineus, amb esglesies com Sant Climent i Santa Maria de Taull, Sant Joan de Boi o Santa Eulalia d'Erill, entre moltes altres. A la vall d'Aneu destaquen les esglesies de Sant Just i Sant Pastor de Son, Sant Joan d'Isil, Sant Pere del Burgal i les torres de guaita d'Espot i Escalo. El 30 de novembre de 2000 el conjunt de les esglesies romaniques de la Vall de Boi va ser declarat Patrimoni Mundial de la Humanitat per la UNESCO. La Val d'Aran hi ha, aixi mateix, una gran riquesa monumental, representada per una multitud d'esglesies com la Mare de Diu de Cap d'Aran a Tredos, Sant Andreu de Salardu, Santa Maria de Arties o Sant Miqueu de Vielha. I finalment, la Vall Fosca, al Pallars Jussa, ens ofereix una mostra artistica de primer ordre amb Sant Marti de la Torre de Cabdella, Sant Julia d'Espui o Santa Maria d'Oveix. POR QUE MERECE LA PENA SER VISITADO: Son muchos los encantos de este Parque Nacional pero su principal sena de identidad corresponde a los mas de 200 lagos o estanys, a los impresionantes riscos de "Els Encantats" y a sus caracteristicos meandros de alta montana (las aiguestortes).

The Secret Garden [VHS]
From Wikipedia: When tempestuous Mary Lennox, born in India to wealthy parents, is orphaned by a cholera epidemic, she is sent to live with her reclusive and embittered Uncle Archibald Craven and her ill-behaved, bedridden cousin Colin at their desolate and decaying estate known as Misselthwaite Manor. Dickon, the brother of one of the house maids, tells her of a garden secreted behind a hidden door in a vine-covered wall. When a raven unearths the key, the two enter and discover the garden is overgrown from neglect since Craven's wife died there in an accident. They decide to keep their discovery a secret, and begin to restore it to its original grandeur. Under the influence of the Secret Garden, Mary becomes less self-absorbed, Colin's health steadily improves, and Archibald's curmudgeonly personality fades away.
