Trivia

The Othello stage adaptation at the beginning of the movie was actually performed and had it premiere in June 1939 at the "Deutsches Theater Berlin", starring Ferdinand Marian as Jago, directed by Erich Engel. The character of Othello, which was played by fictitious actor Wilhelm Deutscher in the movie, was in real life portrayed by Ewald Basler (1898-1978). See more »

Goofs

Veit Harlan said, that he would never do a propaganda movie. Actually he already did propaganda movies before "Jud Suess". In 1937 he did "Der Herrscher", that was containing elements from NS-propaganda. Perhaps Harlan said that, to fool the actors to gain them for his movie. See more »

Excellent film about Nazi propaganda!
25 November 2013 | by petarmaticSee 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.
