LOST HERITAGE

Perspective and convincingness are sacrificed to this consistently violent slash at the Nazi regime in Germany. Supposedly historically accurate as to legislation and atrocities, the fictionization of the facts takes credence from them. The adventures of one Ludwig Camburg, ex-duke, drawn into political embroglios as a student, then into a monarchist plot, and exiled. Has an affair with the professor's wife, returns to Germany in disguise, rescues his old tutor, escapes to England, and marries a little Jewess. Fast pace, often incredible. Mediocre characterization.
