Hi everyone,

Has anyone seen these two mentioned movies ? I think they both date from 1933 and were turned in Germany or by Germans. A bit a dangerous year, but I don't want to judge these movies by their year of producing.
I also would like to know if they are worth something from a historical point of view and if it is still possible to buy them.

Thanks for the replies !

From what I've been able to find out about these movies is that D III was filmed in 1939 and directed by Herbert Maisch. I haven't seen the film nor do I know where anyone can get a copy. However, I think there are some people here who visit the Forum who have seen this film so maybe they'll provide some input.

Pour le Merite was filmed in 1938 and directed by Karl Ritter. The movie is about MvR's life with Walter Bluhm playing the starring role. I don't know how reliable it is as it's considered to be a propaganda movie. I haven't seen this movie either. The Imperial War Museum in London is the only place that I know so far that has this movie and can show it to those who make the request. One of the IWM staff used to visit the Forum. He relayed to us awhile back that although the movie is naturally spoken in German, the IWM copy has Portuguese subtitles.

Let us know if you find out anything more.

Thank you very much for the info on these two movies. I will take contact with the IWM at London to see if copies are available and at what prices.
As soon as I know anything more about it I will keep you posted.
If I can be of any help on a subject on Flanders aerial war, please et me know !
