When the Jewish extras are sitting, eating and singing, Fritz Hippler comes in. Deutscher is referencing him as the man, who made the movie "Der ewige Jude" (The eternal Jew). But this movie was published in the year as "Jew Suess" but it was made after Jew Suess was published. However, Beutscher might have seen the man but the name of the movie was unknown at that moment.

Excellent film about Nazi propaganda!
25 November 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

Why was this film talked against at Berlinale? I find it excellent. It is very interesting story about what happened to actor Marian who acted in Jew Suss. We are still not sure, but I heard that some soldiers of some country who occupied Germany at that time killed him. Nobody is sure.

It is very important to explore Nazi propaganda films, it was an interesting time in the history of film making in Germany at that time. I wished Nazi period never happened, but it did and left a legacy in film making that Germany and UFA should not be proud of.

I would definitely recommend this film for all people who want to know about what happened to film making during Nazi period. We should explore further what happened to the actor Ferdinand Marian.
