Præsten i Vejlby (The Vicar of Vejlby)

101' - 1931 - Drama - Dialogue: Danish
Director: George Schnéevoigt Composer: Bent Froda With: Henrik Malberg, Karin Nellemose, Eyvind Johan-Svendsen
‘Praesten i Vejlby’ was the very first Danish feature film with sound. It tells the story of Steen Steensen Blicher, a story that had already provided material for a film in 1921 and was later filmed for television by Palle Kjaerulf-Schmidt. The filmmakers, especially the cameraman, Christensen and sound engineer Petersen, already had a great deal of experience by working for Nordisk while Schneevoigt had worked on the sound track the year before for his film ‘Eskimo’. Both the public and the critics acclaimed ‘The Vicar of Vejlby’ with the result that Schneevoigt was able to make various films in a relatively short space of time.
