Movie Info

Albert Schweitzer is an 80-minute color documentary on the life of the famed doctor/humanitarian. The film is essentially divided into two sections: The first details Schweitzer's youth in Austria, via still pictures and reconstructed scenes featuring Schweitzer's own grandson. The second half dwells upon Schweitzer's tireless medical efforts at his Lambarene hospital in French Equatorial Africa. The narration, based upon Schweitzer's own writings, is spoken by Fredric March and Burgess Meredith. Though the color photography by Eric Anderson is uneven (understandably, considering filming conditions in Africa), Albert Schweitzer is a superbly mounted testimonial to the then 80-year-old physician.
