Kitty and the World Conference

Kitty and the World Conference

Kitty und die Weltkonferenz (Original Title)

In the hotel “Eden” in Lugano, one of the many world conferences is taking place, which is organized every year, mainly to ensure its participants have a good time. Suddenly, the young manicurist Kitty ends up playing an important role at the conference. Because she’s looking to make herself interesting, she seeks out new acquaintanceships. She meets a journalist looking for new things to write about; and she meets an English finance minister. She lies to the reporter, telling him she’s the secretary of the minister. To the second, the lie doesn’t work, for he is the minister. So he uses her for some political misadventures.

One of the greatest comedies of the 1930's and 40's. A hidden gem directed by the great Kautner overlooked by film connoisseurs. Fritz Odemar gives a stellar performance playing a British aristocrat and finance minister. Hanellore Schroth is sterling as an impetuous young woman. This movie has several layers. On the outer layer we have a well written comedy story.

In the second layer we have a midlife crisis and an unencountered love. My favorite part of the film is a stroll and dining scene with Sir Horace Ashiln and Kitty at the 45-55th minute mark. Observe Fritz Odemar’s facial expressions. The glance from his saddened eyes. He realizes that his life is wasted. In spite of fame, money, and social status he doesn’t have the one thing that seems to matter most. He's missing the sweet warm embrace of love. He has everything and nothing. He would give up all to reverse time and meet a simple and naive girl like Kitty. A story of regret.

On the third layer we have the Nazis realizing way back in 1939 that all this globalism and the international conferences (like Davos) were bs. Take a look at the climate conference in Scotland attended by sleepy Joe. All talk and no action. The main beneficiaries of these conferences are international financial speculators like vicomte Tristan de Gavard (present Soros).

In a fourth layer we see that the National-Socialists realized that no matter how much money you lend to the third world, you will never get it back, due to the excessive waste, fraud, corruption, and abuse.

I would like to point out the stupidity of Joseph Goebbels who ordered this film to be withdrawn from cinemas as he felt it presented a view too favorable of Britain and sweetened the character of their wartime enemies. As far as I understand the national-socialist position was that Brits were part of an Arian heritage, who were poisoned by liberal democracy, fooled by Jews and treasonous elites. What was wrong with the positive portrayal of your brothers even if they were misguided?
