Richard Oswald – Dreyfus AKA The Dreyfus Case (1930)

History of the legal scandal involving the French Captain Alfred Dreyfus who was convicted of treason and sent to the penal colony at Devil’s Island in 1894 because of an anti-Semitic conspiracy in the war ministry. Supported by the writer Emile Zola Dreyfus’s wife Lucie fights for his release. In 1899, the verdict against Dreyfus was repealed and shortly after, Dreyfus was pardoned. But it took another six years until Dreyfus was fully exonerated. (filmportal.de)

This 1930 version of the Dreyfus Affair, concerning the trial of a Jewish officer in France accused of treason, displays a number of talented artists, who were later to become stars in Nazi Germany. This should come as no surprise, however, since some of these actors had very different political attitudes prior to the takeover in 1933 (for example: Heinrich George, who, at the time of this filming, was very much a dedicated Communist). Interesting and sympathetic portrayal of the events
