Visit to Germany
Lloyd George tours the sights of Nazi Germany while his chauffeurs lark about with an SS Officer in this grimly fascinating film.
Home movie 1936 28 mins Silent
David Lloyd George tours Germany, escorted by Nazi government officials, while his chauffeurs lark about with an SS Officer. Lloyd George was pro-German from the mid-1920s, and met Adolf Hitler in 1936. However, by 1938 he had become a leading opponent of appeasement with Germany. This film is believed to have been shot by George Ryder, Lloyd George's chauffeur.
Another film of Lloyd George on a visit to Germany in 1936, Visit of the Rt. Hon. D. Lloyd George, OM, MP to Germany, September 2nd-26th, 1936, is also available on BFI Player.
