- The STEEL BEAST Alternative
Impressionistic tribute to the glory of rail and steam on the hundredth anniversary of the first German railway.
[The film was banned by Goebbels because it was deemed to have too much emphasis on the main role played by foreign engineers rather than German ones. A much shortened version of the film (using the first and last parts) of 929 metres was passed in 1938 for showing in High schools. A further shortened version of the film was also later shown in West German cinemas in 1954].
