Behind-the-Door Hobart Bosworth and Jane Novak 3


About the Release:  Hobart Bosworth stars as Oscar Krug, a working-class American, who is persecuted for his German ancestry after war is declared. Driven by patriotism, Krug enlists and goes to sea. However, tragedy strikes when his wife (Jane Novak) sneaks aboard his ship and is captured following a German U-boat attack. Krug’s single-minded quest for vengeance against the sadistic German submarine commander (played with villainous fervor by Wallace Beery) leads to the film’s shocking and brutal climax. Bonus Materials Include: the re-edited and re-titled version of the film that was distributed in Russia, outtakes featuring music composed and performed by Stephen Horne, a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration, a featurette spotlighting director Irvin Willat by film historian Kevin Brownlow, an image gallery, and souvenir booklet.

    I have a hearing loss so it really feels like I’m not missing anything when I see a silent film. I’m in the same boat as everybody else. I like subtitles too whether on foreign films or just regular ones otherwise it’s kind of like I’m ALWAYS viewing a silent film. This film seems more unusual than most for that era. More intense, serious, more at stake.
    I do not have a Twitter or FB account so am posting here.

    What I do love about Silent films is that they relied more on expressions and body movements more than dialogue. I know that they came before sound films, but you have to admire how they were able to entertain audiences without the use of sound.

  3. David Aibi says:

    I love to see how the emotion and actions are generated without voice. It really shows how talented the men and women were. The eyes were so key to much of it. I have Martin Scorsese and Hugo to thank for rekindling my love of silent films. After viewing, I purchased the George Melies First Wizard collection and I was off. I have not seen this film, and would love the opportunity! Thanks!

      Oh wow. The Melies set must be awesome! Some of my favorite films of all time are Silent… an art unto itself IMHO… Thanks so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂
