PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Biography
German biopic loosely based on the World War I fighter ace Manfred Von Richthofen, nicknamed the Red Baron by friend and foe alike.
The nurse Käte Otersdorf in the film was a real person and she was the nurse who attended to Richthofen after he received the head wound. There were several photographs (probably taken for propaganda purposes) in which she was shown with Richthofen, often together with a large group of other people. There was, however, never any evidence or even suggestion that there was a love affair between them.
Are you out of your bloody minds?
Manfred von Richthofen, Sternberg, Voss, Lehmann: Yes, sir.
Bodenschatz: You risk the squadron planes to attend an enemy funeral?
Manfred von Richthofen, Sternberg, Voss, Lehmann: Yes, sir!
Kaiser Wilhelm II did not speak English with a German accent; his mother was Queen Victoria's daughter who was also King Edward VII's older sister, and he spoke English like a member of the British Royal family, which he was. However, as most of his dialogue in this film is "translated" from German, his German accent may have been the producers' way of representing that fact.
