$13.99

Stabsarzt Dr. Fritz Böhler ist Gefangenenarzt im sowjetischen Kriegsgefangenenlager 5110/47 bei Stalingrad. Trotz härtester Bedingungen versucht er mit den einfachsten Mitteln seinen mitgefangenen Kameraden zu helfen. Als sich jedoch sein Assistenzarzt Dr. Schultheiß in die russische Ärztin Alexandra Kasalinskaja verliebt, gefährdet Schultheiß nicht nur sein eigenes Leben – denn Alexandra ist die Geliebte des Oberleutnants Markow.

Der Arzt von Stalingrad (The Doctor of Stalingrad) was one of four films directed in 1958 by the prolific Hungarian-born helmsman Geza von Radvanyi.   Set in a Russia POW camp after the end of the Second World War, the film concentrates on an imprisoned German doctor, played by O.E. Hasse.   Denied sophisticated surgical tools, the doctor relies solely upon his medical skill to pull his patients through.   He manages to win the confidence and respect of his Soviet captors when he removes a brain tumor from the son of the commandant.   Less happy are the results of a wartime romance between his assistant and a female Russian physician.  Though not altogether sympathetic to the Russians, neither can Der Arzt Von Stalingrad be considered entirely pro-German.

IN GERMAN WITH HARD-ENCODED ENGLISH SUBTITLES.  OVERALL VERY GOOD QUALITY.  APPROXIMATELY 106 MINUTES.
