    This fantastically scaled Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George Schnéevoigt, who brings every exotic corner of on-location Scandinavia to the forefront in a decade-spanning romantic adventure. Mona Martenson is Laila, a young girl separated from her parents as a baby and raised by a wealthy reindeer owner Aslag (Peter Malberg) in the frozen tundra. Though she is returned a year later, Laila grows into a young woman of two worlds, at home with both her settled and nomadic upbringings. Laila soon finds herself in a love triangle with her foster brother Mellet (Henry Gleditsch) and her cousin Anders (Harald Schwenzen), played out against the backdrop of an encroaching plague. Expertly photographed with a shockingly modern cinematic flair, Laila goes from snowy mountain-tops to lush green valleys, featuring treacherous waterfalls, packs of rampaging wolves and reindeer-pulled sled chases. Recently resurrected by and proudly presented in conjunction with the Norwegian Film Institute, Laila boasts a restored transfer and all-new subtitles as well as a brand new theater organ score by renowned composer Robert Israel. Original diary manuscript of actor Tryggve Larssen (Jampa in the film) made during the production of Laila; brand new illustrated essay by film historian Casper Tybjerg; rare photo galleries and more.

        Jerry Fairbank's 1948 Standard Oil (Indiana) film "Inside Story of Modern Gasoline" is the subject of this installment of "Jon Boschen's Classic Industrial Film Showcase". This classic industrial film explores Standards Red and White crown brands that were being marketed during the post World War 2 era. The film makes great use of cinematography, cartoon animation, and a terrific musical score to discuss and sell the brand. The "Inside Story of Modern Gasoline" was one of two versions of the film that was made simultaneously; this version being produced for internal exhibition amongst Standard Oil employeesl. The second version "Gasoline's Amazing Molecules" (currently missing) was prepared for public exhibition, and interestingly has the same running time as "Inside Story Of Modern Gasoline". Boschen's intro to the film gives background information on t the Standard Oil Company of Indiaan and also the Jerry Fairbanks studio. The intro was shot with a Canon 5D Mark III and edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. The public domain film “Inside Story Modern Gasoline” is available for both viewing and downloading from the Prelinger Archives, courtesy of Rick Prelinger: https://archive.org/details/0320_Inside_Story_of_Modern_Gasoline_The_21_01_00_00

Following on the heels of what are popularly considered to be his two greatest movies, "There Will Be Blood" and "The Master", we debate to what extent "Inherent Vice" is a worthy addition to his filmography.
