Condemned (film)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Condemned is a 1929 American black and white melodrama film. It stars Ronald Colman, Ann Harding, Dudley Digges, Louis Wolheim, William Elmer, and Wilhelm von Brincken. The movie was adapted by Sidney Howard from the novel by Blair Niles. It was directed by Wesley Ruggles. The tagline was "A kiss that cannot be forgotten!"

The film is known by a variety of other names, including: Condenado in Portugal and Spain, Condemned to Devil's Island in the USA reissue, Condenado a Isla del Diablo in Argentina, Flucht von der Teufelsinsel in Austria, L'isola del diavolo in Italy, and Prisoners (the US working title)

In 1930, the film was nominated for an Oscar at the Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Ronald Colman's collective work on this film and Bulldog Drummond.

This is first of eight films which was worked on by both Samuel Goldwyn and Sidney Howard. The last was Raffles (1940).

Condemnation
Tried
Here on the stand
With the book in my hand
And truth on my side

Accusations
Lies
Hand me my sentence
I'll show no repentance
I'll suffer with pride

If for honesty
You want apologies
I don't sympathize
If for kindness
You substitute blindness
Please open your eyes

Condemnation
Why
Because my duty
Was always to beauty
And that was my crime

Feel elation
High
To know I can trust this
Fix of injustice
Time after time

If you see purity
As immaturity
Well it's no surprise
If for kindness
You substitute blindness
Please open your eyes

Personally I think it's crap.

Since when is "Dem" an abbreviation for Liberal Democrats?

ConLibNation just doesn't have the same ring to it. Basically, this is a poor joke.
