The Angel with the Trumpet is a 1950 British drama film directed by Anthony Bushell and starring Eileen Herlie, Basil Sydney and Norman Wooland.[2] It was based on a novel by Ernst Lothar. The film follows the rise and fall of an Austrian aristocrat and her eventual death following Anschluss. The film was a remake of a 1948 Austrian film of the same title.

Plot[edit]

The saga begins with the Jewish founder of the firm and his aristocratic. non-Jewish wife. This marriage has its own problems. I will not spoil it by recounting several touching scenes, for the wife is close to the Hapsburg court and gets intimately involved with the decline of that unhappy family.[3]
