Other Title
Freud, Sigmund--home movie excerpts
Sigmund Freud--home movies
The film opens with a close-up of Sigmund Freud in conversation, sitting outdoors, holding a cigar, and casually feeding one of his chows. The scene then shifts to Freud walking down a country lane with three adults and two children. The group includes Anna Freud. The others are most likely Martin Freud and Dorothy T. Burlingham, with two of her children. The film was probably made in the late 1920s, either in Semmering, Austria, where the Freuds summered in 1924-1928 or Schneewinkel in the Bavarian Alps where they stayed in 1929. Schneewinkel seems more likely given the ages of the children.
