“This film is a fascinating showcase for Emil Janning’s theatrical play. He’s a gentle schoolteacher who believes in his boys and is easily fooled about all things, while the other town officials want him dismissed. Disaster strikes and the lax prof proves to be too far removed from the real problems of the world, on the other hand his enemies are shown in the most unsympathetic, satirical way denouncing the militaristic, bourgeois ideology of the Kaiserreich. “ Letterbox.
