Summary
The film, "Professor Freud from Vienna to London via Paris, Part One," opens in the summer of 1937 at the home of Ruth Mack Brunswick and Mark Brunswick at 19 Hasenauerstrasse, Vienna, Austria, followed by scenes of the Freud family in their rented villa in Grinzing, Vienna, Austria, where they summered in 1934-1937. Visits by writer Arnold Zweig, his wife and son; psychoanalyst Max Eitingon and his wife; Princess Marie Bonaparte, and others are recorded. Both Freud's chow Lün and Bonaparte's chow Topsy are shown in various scenes. The black-and-white film switches to color, showing Sigmund and Martha Freud in Grinzing and Marie Bonaparte and Mark Brunswick swimming in the Danube River. A later segment, also in color, was filmed in December 1937 and shows Marie Bonaparte reading journals in the waiting room of the Freud home at Berggasse 19 in Vienna. Other interior shots show Freud's consulting room and study, the home's kitchen, and Paula Fichtl, the Freud's housekeeper, putting away linens. In an exterior scene, Anna Freud walks a chow in the home's courtyard. The camera then pans from the courtyard to the window of Freud's study. The film ends with street scenes in Vienna on May 1, 1938, after the Anschluss. Swastikas are shown draped on the facades of buildings near the Freud home and in the hand of a child watching the May Day spectacle. This segment is in color.
The film, "Professor Freud from Vienna to London via Paris, Part Two," opens with Sigmund Freud resting on the terrace of Princess Marie Bonaparte's home in Paris on June 5, 1938, en route from Vienna to London. The scene on the terrace switches from black-and-white to color and depicts Freud, Martha Freud, Anna Freud, Ernst L. Freud, Bonaparte's husband Prince George of Greece and Denmark, Prince Valdemar of Denmark, and Josefine Stross, the physician who accompanied Freud from Vienna. The subsequent London scenes show the Freud family residing first at 39 Elsworthy Road and then at 20 Maresfield Gardens. Included is a visit to the Freud home by officers of the Royal Society. Freud had been elected to the society as a foreign member in 1936 but had not been able to sign the charter book. In a rare decision, the society brought the book to 20 Maresfield Gardens where the ailing Freud was able to sign it. Other scenes include a visit to the chow Lün in quarantine; Freud and his two of his grandsons, Lucian and Stephen Freud, looking for goldfish in a pond; Anna Freud dressed as a dryad; Paula Fichtl playing with the family's Pekinese Jumbo; and visits to and from psychoanalyst Ernest Jones and his wife Katherine. Also featured are Dorothy T. Burlingham and Princess Eugénie of Greece and Denmark, the daughter of Marie Bonaparte.
