PEOPLE ON SUNDAY (MENSCHEN AM SONNTAG) represents an astonishing confluence of talent an early collaboration by a group of German filmmakers who would all go on to become major Hollywood players, including eventual noir masters Robert Siodmak (THE KILLERS, CRISS CROSS) and Edgar G. Ulmer (DETOUR, BLUEBEARD) and future Oscar winners Billy Wilder (SUNSET BOULEVARD, ACE IN THE HOLE) and Fred Zinneman (HIGH NOON, a MAN FOR ALL SEASONS). This effervescent, sunlit silent film, about a handful of city dwellers enjoying a weekend outing (a charming cast of nonprofessionals), offers a rare glimpse of Weimar-era Berlin. A unique hybrid of documentary and fictional storytelling, PEOPLE ON SUNDAY was both an experiment and a mainstream hit that would influence generations of film artists around the world.
