The Bridge (1959) Poster

(1959)

Trivia

The film is set in Cham, in Bavaria, Germany.
The bridge was called Florian-Geyer-Brücke. It was torn down in 1994 and replaced by a new one. There now are several plaques with film scenes there as a reminder of this movie.
None of the tanks shown in the movie are real. Since the German army still did not have any tanks in 1959, Bernhard Wicki had to have wooden models constructed, they were then placed on top of a truck chassis. The wheels can clearly been seen under the "tank" body.
The end credits assert that the script relates true facts which happened on April 27 1945.
