Editorial Reviews

FEODOR CHALIAPIN. Directed by G.W. PABST. Based on the novel by MIGUEL DE CERVANTES. From the pages of Cervantes tragi-comic masterpiece comes this vibrant and impressively mounted epic with music which features one of the most beloved characters in all of world literature. He is Don Quixote, and he is vividly played by the fabled Russian-born operatic basso Feodor Chaliapin (who also is in fine voice). Don Quixote is an elderly and colorful eccentric who has convinced himself that he is a knight errant. He sees his lifes duty as righting societys wrongs by attacking all evil, helping the poor and downtrodden and defending the weak and oppressed. One day he overhears some trumpets which are announcing the arrival of a traveling theater troupe. He promptly mistakes these notes as the trumpets of King Arthur, which are summoning him to head out into the world to accomplish his mission. So he sets out to do just that, dressing himself in armor and traveling in the company of his short, plump companion Sancho Panza. Some simply laugh at Don Quixote. Others feel he should be in a madhouse. Perhaps he is indeed daft. Certainly, he cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality and is doing little more that jousting with windmills. Pabst changed the ending of Cervantes famous story in what some think of as an anti-Nazi allegory. Notwithstanding, Don Quixote is a man with a dream. A man of honor and gallantry. A man with idealism and imagination. What would the world be without men like Don Quixote? 76 minutes.
