The Red Baron

Synopsis: Baron Manfred von Richthofen is the most feared and celebrated pilot of the German air force in World War I. To him and his companions, air combats are events of sporty nature, technical challenge and honorable acting, ignoring the terrible extent of war. But after falling in love with the nurse Käte, Manfred realizes he is only used for propaganda means. Caught between his disgust for the war, and the responsibility for his fighter wing, von Richthofen sets out to fly again.

This way!



next to the farther beach tree!

Get Down, Down.


Northern France, Allied territory 1916,

German airfield near the front, France,

Are you out of your bloody mind?

Yes Sir

You risk the squadron planes to

attend an enemy funeral?

Yes sir!

Lehmann and Sternberg knew him sir,

Captain Winston Clyde Walker.

the coffin I mean sir

Yes, i mean Sir..

My uncle, the Duke of Westchester

is mother's brother-in-law

Lehmann and me went to college with him.

At Eton, Sir.

You are talking about a British pilot,

god damn it.

One of the best the RFC had.

It's a pity that he's not alive anymore, Sir.

To hell with you.


I've heard your plane cought some bullets

while you were visiting the funeral, Richthofen.

Ah, I just love these tiny chatty Airfields, Kielmeyer.

Does anybody want a cigarette?

- You have French ones?

-De rien.


Richthofen shot down a two-seater today.

I guess it was meant as compensation

for disobeying my orders?


I just wanted to score.

I have just received a report that a British RE8

went down 12 km from here.

You have my deepest respect, Baron.

Let us go and find it to confirm your kill.

Come on lend a hand!



I said be careful!

That doesn't look good.

Put him there...

Hurry up, he is heavy.

He is losing much blood.

Lend a hand.

Hold that.

You will make it.

We must carry him to the car.


Take him!

Thank you.

You have saved his life.


I shot him down.

You got him, Sternberg.

...rubbish. The DH2 one-seater should be

attacked from above...

See Sterni, if the attacker has a rotary engine then....

What is a rotary engine?

Oh Lieutenant Sternberg...

Hey, come back.

Well, Voss.

Obviously she prefers men like me. Right?

Men like you?

Moses, Freud...

- Perhaps we also should get circumcised?

Hey where are you going?

What do you think Manfred,

she looks like your little nurse huh?

...I mean:

I'm sorry Sir.

What are you doing here?

Come, drink with us.

I thought the gentlemen just

wanted to drink a cocktail.

Sit, drink and relax...

I'm married you know...

Me too.

I mean, almost.

...we need a bit of water.

The driver says the engine is overheated.


-My name is von Richthofen.

I'm glad to see you again, Mademoiselle.

I know your name.

-Oh really?

The pilot that you shot down told me your name.

So he survived?

Are you just asking or

does it really interest you?

The former.

At least you are honest.

That's a good start isn't it?

Can't I just ask without being interested?

So, what's your name?

His name is Captain Roy Brown.

And he's still alive regardless of other things.

He told me that you were a brilliant pilot

and a cheeky rogue.

I understand.

Tell him that I am flattered by his compliments.

And that I hope that we will

never meet in the sky again.

He might still get me.

And perhaps I won't have

the same luck as him.

And meet such a gorgeous nurse.

Unbelievable. Have a nice evening.

Have you seen my scarf?

I'll send it to you.

No no, you can keep it.

It's a lucky charm.

The French have sent their condolences

together with the confirmation of the kill.

The mass for Kielmeyer will be today at 4pm

The enemy pilot who lead the attack four days ago

it was Hawker.


Major Lanoe Hawker?

Yes, exactly.

I saw his face. He had a beard.

And the Grim Reaper painted on his plane.

It's their best man.

He's a nasty fellow.

He already shot down 9 of our men.

When they were still flying unarmed recon missions

he already mounted a gun on his plane.
