The Comeback
[Liebe im Ring]
(1930)

 

This part-talkie drama features the famous German boxer Max Schmeling, with beautiful Renate Müller and Olga Tschechowa. Originally planned as a silent production, the film may have been released in Germany as a silent film with a soundtrack of synchronized music and a talking sequence consisting of a song sung by Max Schmeling.

By virtue of his 1936 defeat of Joe Lewis, Schmeling again became a boxing star, thus sparking fleetfooted American film distributor Rogers Pictures to revamp the German language film as a silent, with a synchronized music and sound effects soundtrack and fight footage narration, and rush reissue it to American theaters.
