Midnight Revue | Intro by Johanna Yunker, UMass Amherst

Revue um Mitternacht

(GDR, 1962, dir. Gottfried Kolditz, 106 min., color, EN ST)

This musical comedy revolves around the attempts of a famous producer—the great Kruse—to create a successful musical revue film. With clever references to Hollywood films, it exemplifies a push to compete with the West’s biggest studios and make box-office hits to appeal to GDR audiences and bring in revenue. Shot at great expense in Totalvision, the GDR version of Cinemascope.
