Weitere Titel: Ein Bräutigam der auf sich warten läßt (D, Ö)/ Holding up the wedding (USA) - Länge: 110m - Interpret: Max Linder?, Maurice Chevalier? - Produktion: Pathé Frères - Katalog-Nr.: 2921/Juni 09 - Auff.: 13. Juni 1909 (Graz/ Grazer Bioskop)  ̶  Weitere Auff.: 24.7.09 (Saint Quentin/ Omnia Cinématographe Pathé); 7.8.09  (Herne/ Kinematoscope)


A comedy from Pathe which deals with a delayed wedding, which served to supply opportunity for the intended bridegroom to drink too much. There is little of interest in it, with scarcely anything either lively or original connected with it. (Moving Picture World, Jul. 31, 1909)


Depuis une heure toute la noce stationne devant la mairie: on attend Anatole le mari. Belle-maman trépigne d’impatience, les petites demoiselles d’honneur se roulent dans la poussière et la mariée pleure. Pendant ce temps, Anatole, en route pour la mairie, rencontre des camarades qui le congratulent et l’entraînent au café pour porter un toast à Eulalie. Tant et si bien que la fin du jour le ramène, ivre et joyeux à sa tendre fiancée qui ne l’attendait plus. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)

Anmerkung: Leichte Abwandlungen des Titels "Une Mariée qui .../ Un Marié qui ..." und des Aufführungsjahres "1911" finden sich in einigen Filmografien (z.B.: Fabien Sabatès, "Maurice Chevalier"). Auch wenn sein Wiedererscheinen erst in dem zwei Monate später erschienenen Film "Aimé par sa bonne" bemerkt wurde, scheint Pathé bereits im Mai einen Film mit Max Linder (Un bobo mal placé) veröffentlicht zu haben.[Note: Slight variations of title "Une Mariée qui .../ Un Marié qui ..." and release year "1911" can be found in various filmografies (e.g. Fabien Sabatès, "Maurice Chevalier"). Even though his contemporaries only registered his reappearance in the two month later released "Aimé par sa bonne", it seems that Pathé had already released a film with Max Linder (Un bobo mal placé), back in May 1909.]




























Weitere Filmbeschreibungen/Kritiken:


The happy wedding party start out for the office of the Justice of the Peace, where the knot is going to be tied, but as they are strolling along a fellow steps up to the prospective bridegroom and hands him an important paper which calls for his immediate attention. The latter excuses himself from his friends, telling them to go right along to the place set for the ceremony, and that he will follow soon. He then goes to a summer garden with the man, where, after attending to his business, he has a drink, after which he makes an attempt to leave and join his friends. As he gets to the gate he meets an old friend, and the pair return and have some more refreshments in honor of the wedding day. Every time that the fellow starts out of the place he is sure to run into some one whom he knows and each time he has a drink, forgetting all about the wedding party who are nearly frantic waiting for him to come. Finally he is hardly able to walk, so climbing into a cab, he is driven to the place to join his friends. In the meantime they have become tired waiting and all have fallen asleep. When he drives up he is helpless and the enraged crowd try to make things interesting for him for a little while, but he manages to slumber on through all of the excitement. Length, 335 feet. (Moving Picture World, Jul. 17, 1909; Film Index, Jul. 24, 1909)


A rather good comedy film of the broad farcical type, depicting the start of a wedding party and the groom's promise to meet them later at the church. He falls in with many convivial friends, and the resultant good fellowship drinks so undermine his power of locomotion that he is compelled, many hours after the hour set for the ceremony, to reach there by carriage. In the meantime the waiting crowd has fallen asleep and his reception is anything but cordial when his coming awakens them. There are many good laughs in it and the acting is not overdone. (New York Dramatic Mirror, Jul. 31, 1909)
