Classic German film based on the legendary Swiss woodsman, who was an expert with his crossbow.  In 1307, Austrian soldiers arrive at a Swiss village and inform the locals they must bow before their authority. Tell (Hans Marr) is the unofficial leader of the villagers and he refuses to acknowledge the Austrians as superiors. This angers the Austrian commander (Conrad Veidt), who makes Tell shoot an apple off the top of his son's head. Tell completes the task successfully, but the two men become bitter enemies with Tell's defiance sparking a revolt against the Austrian soldiers.
