Hanussen 1955 - FOUND
12 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was able to find an original German language version of this. It is being uploaded to Youtube and I also created a torrent file under Hanussen (1955) For those of you, like me, who endured the long wait for this to become available, wait no more...

This is the 1955 original version feature O.W. Fischer, Liseloett Pulver, and Klaus Kinski.

From Wikipedia: "After World War I, Hanussen performed a mind reading, muscle reading, and hypnosis act at La Scala in Berlin that catapulted him to stardom. At his height, he enjoyed the company of Germany's military and business elite, also becoming close with members of the SA (Sturmabteilung) and lenders to them of large sums of money. It is claimed he was a supporter of the Nazis despite his Jewish ancestry, which was an open secret.

Stories abound of meetings between Hanussen and Hitler, including an encounter shortly before the election of November 1932, during which Hanussen taught Hitler his crowd control techniques of using gestures and dramatic pauses.[3] Hanussen was also quite close to other important Nazi officials, to whom he had often lent money, including Wolf-Heinrich Graf von Helldorf, Karl Ernst and Friedrich Wilhelm Ohst."
