Sigmund Freud--home movies
Summary
The movie was taken at the Freud home at Berggasse 19 in Vienna in the winter of 1937. It opens with close-ups of Sigmund Freud in his study. He poses as if sitting for a still portrait. The contents of the room, including Freud's desk and antiquities collection, are filmed as well. Other scenes depict Anna Freud's rooms, including her bed with a Madonna-like print over it; Paula Fichtl playing with a chow; and Anna Freud talking to her father. There is a brief scene of the Freud family dining with guests. The interior scenes are dark despite efforts to add additional lighting.
