Actually a very good historical film for the time (or anytime). A good film is just that and cannot be dismissed because it is nationalistic or made under an unpopular regime. "Der Choral Von Leuthen" was actually produced shortly before Hitler took power not under the Nazis. The well staged and exciting massive battle scenes are the hallmark of this forgotten epic. Otto Gebuhr was perfect as the soldier King Frederick II in appearance and he acted the part very convincingly. Hollywood might well consider making a something like this about George Washington instead of the politically correct drivel and remakes of previous films they pump out today. No wonder why people are not going to the movies anymore!
