“Oscar Winner” the boxer saied.
Since 1929 a lot of Academey Awards were thrown out, the first for “Leading Role” to Emil Jannings 1927/28. I have to confess that it never was of real interest to me, there are a lot of film awards in the world, seven in Germany as I learned from this site, and whether one lady wears Prada or not on the red carpet – who cares? Savannah, our Danish friend and gazillions of people around the globe, but me honestly not.
Recently I looked at a lot of black-white-photographs and I will start to play around with a picture editing program to make my own b/w images. And I found that the AMPAS gave awards for black/white and for colour cinematography from 1939 until 1967.
Robert Krasker (Eng., Ger.) received the oscar 1950 for his work on “The Third Man” (Ger., Eng.) by Carol Reed. Krasker is influenced by the German expressionists and film noir. And I guess that can be seen when Mr. Lime is chased through the sewers of Vienna. The end of the film is worth another look, makes me long for a cigarette.
Originally here was link to a video on youtube showing scenes from the famous chase through the sewers of Vienna.
