DER ERBFÖRSTER (1944)

Eugen Klöpfer, Otto Gebühr and Hansi Wendler, Alois Johannes Lippl
$9.99
For many years, Ulrich, the forester, and Steinbach, the landowner, have been the best of friends.  Yet one day, this friendship is put to a difficult test:  for reasons of financial difficulty, Steinbach is going to allow the land to be deforested for wood, which Ulrich condemns as a brutal exploitation of nature - which is why he has denied a permit for the project.  So as to clear the way, Steinbach ensures that Ulrich is removed as the forest ranger.  When a few days later, the dam built by Steinbach is blown up and the subsequent onrush of water floods Steinbach's sawmill, everyone suspects Ulrich of the deed.
 
Über viele Jahre hinweg waren Ulrich, der Erbförster, und Steinbach, der Gutsherr, die besten Freunde. Doch eines Tages wird diese Freundschaft auf eine harte Probe gestellt: Aus Geldnot will Steinbach den Wald abholzen lassen, was Ulrich als brutalen Raubbau an der Natur verdammt – weswegen er die Genehmigung für das Vorhaben verweigert. Um freie Bahn zu haben, sorgt Steinbach dafür, dass Ulrich als Förster abgesetzt wird. Als einige Tage später der von Steinbach gebaute Staudamm gesprengt wird und die Wassermassen Steinbachs Sägewerk überfluten, richtet sich der allgemeine Verdacht sofort gegen Ulrich.
