Other Title
Freud, Sigmund, original film
Sigmund Freud--home movies
Compilation of various films. The montage begins with Sigmund and Martha Freud's fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration in Grinzing, Vienna, Austria, in September 1936. Family members, guests, and residents from the surrounding countryside are shown arriving and greeting the Freuds. The camera then follows the Brunswicks' daughter Matilda at play with another child, possibly a Freud granddaughter. Attached to these segments are earlier films showing Freud on the balcony at Lake Grundlsee in 1930 and later in Pötzleinsdorf, Vienna, Austria. At Pötzleinsdorf, Freud is shown reading a book while Martha Freud and Minna Bernays sit nearby at a table where they are joined by Princess Marie Bonaparte. A brief street scene follows showing Freud taking a walk. A copy of the film of Emanuel Löwy's visit with Freud in July 1932 is reintroduced here. The film ends with Sigmund Freud, Martha Freud, Minna Bernays, Princess Marie Bonaparte, and others admiring a child held by Ruth Mack Brunswick, possibly her daughter Matilda. Born in the United States in March 1929, her parents returned to Europe with her in the fall of that year.
