Directed by Otto Kreisler. Cast: Rudolph Schildkraut, Joseph Schildkraut, H. [i.e. Ernst] Bath, Josef Schreiter; Rudolf Dietz; Else Osterheim; Gita Lenart-Vago; Axel Plessen; Pippa Gettke. This early film biography of the founder of modern Zionism depicts a young Herzl learning about Jewish persecution throughout the ages, and developing his theory of political Zionism, which he saw as the only solution to anti-semitism. The film then follows Herzl's efforts to implement his ideas by converting European leaders and Jews to his cause. 59 min. Credits and other information from the Internet Movie Database
