World War I-era scenes: German soldiers riding horseback. British troops on the battlefield, sheltering from enemy fire, then running across the field. Quick scenes of Kaiser Wilhelm II, in a group of military men, descending a staircase and reviewing a parade of German soldiers. Women, men and children gathered on a balcony for what appears to be a wedding. This is the wedding of Archduke Charles I of Austria to Princess Zita of Parma in October 1911. The last scene shows Franz Joseph I of Austria (Habsburg) in the company of another man on a field. They have evidently been hunting: several dead animals lie on the ground.
01:17:44 Scenes of the Orient Express train. Shots taken from the train of a city; conductors welcome passengers onboard; the train as it pulls out of stations.
01:20:53 German soldiers with Austrian civilians after the Anschluss. A woman pours a cup of coffee for a soldier; a soldier lifts a child up to show him the interior of a cannon; German and Austrian soldiers smile and talk to each other. A regiment of Austrian soldiers marches through the streets of Berlin, greeted by crowds of German onlookers. Quality very nice.
01:22:08 An onscreen title reads: "Salzburg, the festival town." Panning shots of Salzburg, then street scenes. Onscreen title: "Maestro Toscanini." The conductor Arturo Toscanini stands beside another man, surrounded by smiling onlookers. Toscanini wears a hat.
