A great series, lost for ever
13 October 2019 | by hou-3See all my reviews

This early tv appearance by Jacobi as a weaselly, duplicitous social climber in imperial Germany showed what a star was in the making. Alas, we can no longer enjoy his terrific performance because the series was not archived and is lost for good. Very sad
