Destiny (German: Schicksal) is a 1942 Austrian-German historical drama film directed by Géza von Bolváry and starring Heinrich George, Werner Hinz and Christian Kayßler. The film was made by Wien-Film, a company set up by the Germans after they had annexed Austria in 1938. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Kurt Herlth and Werner Schlichting. The film was banned after the Second World War for its perceived Nazi content.[1]
