Classic German Adventure Film
7 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

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.

The print I saw ran 61 minutes and was the English dubbed version of the German film. Quite rare and a nice film for fans of Veidt or the legendary Tell.
