U-9 Weddigen

U-9 Weddigen is a 1927 German silent war film directed by Heinz Paul and starring Carl de Vogt, Mathilde Sussin and Fritz Alberti. The film is based on the exploits of the submarine SM U-9 under the command of Otto Weddigen during the First World War.[1] It is similar in theme to the previous year's Our Emden, which also depicted the Imperial German Navy in heroic terms.
