A Prussian Love Story (German: Preußische Liebesgeschichte) is a 1938 German historical romance film directed by Paul Martin and starring Karl Günther, Hans Nielsen and Willy Fritsch. The film depicts the love affair between William I and Elisa Radziwill.[1] In the Third Reich the film was banned right after completion because the love affair of Joseph Goebbles and the actress Lída Baarová had become public—it was first shown in 1950.
