The Pride of the Third Company

Recommended Posts

Original title: Der Stolz der Dritten Kompanie - comedy film starring Heinz Rühmann as a recruit, Musketier Diestelbeck, of well above average intelligence. The film shows a satirical view of everyday  life in a typical infantry regiment, pre-ww1
The regiment depicted is fictitious, a typical infantry regiment of the period,  "Regiment Prinz Willibald" - the uniforms very accurate, Prussian style, but the helmet emblems have deliberately been replaced by a fantasy emblem, also the shoulder straps bear no unit designation. The film was banned after 1933, but some copies survived till today. Humourous and entertaining, the military at the time was probably not very flattered.
