William Tell (1935)
Movie InfoThe title tells all in the German-made Legend of William Tell. Hans Marr is at his most nobly heroic as the title character, the 13th-century Swiss huntsman-patriot who defied the despotic dictatorship of Herr Gessler (Conrad Veidt).

The climax consists of the hero's escape from Gessler's dungeon and his subsequent victory over his enemies. Within a few years, anti-dictator films would be on German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels' no-no list, and Conrad Veidt would be plying his villainy in American films. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More
