Villa Regenstreif in Vienna

Film | RG Number: RG-60.1245 | Film ID: 2912
Image

Introduced with German titles throughout. Views of the Villa Regenstreif (Poetz). Blossoming trees in the spring, the garden, outdoor pool, sculptures, and fountains. The fountain with a high water jet is a copy of New York's Central Park Conservatory. 02:25:14 View of the villa foyer (see Story 1249 at 03:17:15 for a view of the same foyer as the family is forced to sell the villa to the Nazis). In summer, terraces, sprinklers (beautiful shot), stairs. Film switches to color. The twins with red vests ride new bicycles. The garden is in full bloom. In autumn, more faded color scenes of the house, Yugoslavian flag hanging from the window after the Anschluss [the intention was to give the impression that the property was owned by foreigners], greenhouse, gardens, statues, and flowers. Grandfather Fritz appears at 02:30:36. Title introduces winter but the film ends with the Kodak logo.
