Bismarck or Bismarck 1862–1898 is a 1927 German silent historical film directed by Kurt Blachy and starring Franz Ludwig, Robert Leffler and Erna Morena.[1] It was made as a follow-up to the 1925 film Bismarck which had also starred Ludwig. Because of this it is sometimes referred to as Bismarck Part II. The film depicts the latter part of Otto von Bismarck's career including his long spell as Chancellor of Germany.
