Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family.
The funeral scene was filmed at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in front of the Watchorn Family's obelisk and a few yards from the burial locations of Estelle Getty, Mel Blanc and Karl Dane..
So, what do you know about art restitution?
Randol Schoenberg: Not a thing.
Maria Altmann: Well, it's never too late to learn. Why don't you come on inside. Have some strudel. I made it especially for you.
While Randol and Maria drive down Sunset Boulevard, a billboard for the 2014 film "Guardians of the Galaxy" appears visibly in the distance down the street while the time period of the scene is supposed to take place in 1999.
