Only the fourth color
film made in Germany, Munchausen employs a wide range of sensational special
effects which amaze and amuse in the recounting of the adventures of the legendary hero
Baron von Munchausen. The action ranges from Venice to St. Petersburg to the moon and
back, as the Baron (Hans Albers) travels by horse, balloon and cannonball. The film was
recently reconstructed by the Friedrich Murnau Foundation. German with English subtitles.
