TANNENBERG (1932)

Hans Stüwe, Käthe Haack and Jutta Sauer, Heinz Paul
$9.99

Tannenberg is a 1932 Swiss–German war film directed by Heinz Paul and starring Hans Stüwe, Käthe Haack and Jutta Sauer. The film is based around the 1914 Battle of Tannenberg during the First World War. It focuses on a German landowner Captain von Arndt and his family. It was shot on location in East Prussia and at UFA's Babelsberg Studios during the summer of 1932. It cost over half a million Reichsmark to make and employed 8,000 people. The film focused on a notable German victory and was in sharp contrast to recent anti-war films such as Westfront 1918. Tannenberg served as a national symbol in Germany and was re-issued in 1936 during the Nazi era. The Producers made an effort to make the film as historically accurate as possible and portrayed the Russian commanders respectfully. It was due to be released on 26 August 1932, the eighteenth anniversary of the battle, but was delayed by the censors acting on a request from the German President Paul von Hindenburg, who was unhappy with his portrayal in the film.  The première was pushed back until certain scenes had been cut.
