I have three short documentaries on 35mm (each runs about 20 minutes) made by UFA for the Deutsche Luftpost/Deutsche Lufthansa.  They are entitled "....Und Nachmittags in Barcelona",  "Brief Fliegen Uber Den Ozean" and "FP1 Ist Wirchlichkeit Geworden".  The last of these refers to the 1932 German film "FP1 Antwortet Nicht" about a floating platform, which enables aircraft to land and refuel in mid-Atlantic.  They are all original prints on safety stock and in their original cardboard boxes.  One of the boxes has a renter's label inside showing that the film was last rented out in 1943.  "....Und Nachmittags in Barcelona" starts with shots of a swastika and German soldiers marching.  I do not have a problem with the language, as my wife is half German and bilingual and can translate for me the parts of the commentary that I cannot understand.  There is no copyright date on the films and I would like to know when they were made and anything else about them.  Can any members help or let me know where I could find out more information?

Hello exciterlamp,

We have a couple of German members on the forum.
The question is , do they visit the forum? René Rossi does now and then.

If you cannot get any information here, you could try to get it on the German forum.  www.filmvorfuehrer.de/
I'm sure you'll find some answers there!
You can post in English there!

Hi Xenon

Thank you for your reply.  I have joined the German forum, have posted my enquiry and have had some very friendly and very helpful replies.  My first posting was in German, but I am pleased to say that I had replies in English!  My wife is half German and we visit Germany at least once a year.  My spoken and written German is very very basic (especially when it comes to conjugations and declensions), but with the help of a dictionary I can read it reasonably well.

Xenon

That's absolutely fantastic.  I have entered all the info on my film collection database.  I was particularly interested to discover the dates.  The films are earlier than I thought.  Many thanks for your great detective work.

Exciterlamp,

I don't know if you've looked further into the sites I've mentioned in my earlier posts.
If you look a bit deeper in this: http://www.filmportal.de/df/b8/Artikel,,,,,,,,THEMENTHEMENENGLISHHEMENTHEMENTH,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.html

you'll find interesting facts about making films during the national socialist period in Germany.

Hello Exciterlamp,

Concerning the earlier mentioned documentaries, I've found the following on Youtube:

The whole film : FP1 Antwortet nicht ( in German language )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6GBy7v-1Io

Und Nachmittags in Barcelona:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRRE7OhLqqU

I am sure there is still more to be found on Youtube.

Many thanks, Xenon.  All the films mentioned in my original post are on Youtube.  Well spotted.  Interesting to see the swastikas and goose-stepping Nazis.  Fortunately, having a half German wife and visiting Germany at least once a year, I can understand most of the commentary, particularly as the narrator speaks very clearly and precisely.  Unfortunately, my spoken German is not very good.  But I know the most important words - (noch) ein Bier, bitte!
