Woman in Gold is a 2015 movie directed by Simon Curtis that tells with some liberties taken from actual events, the story about the return (restitution) of some Klimt paintings that the National Socialists had expropriated. The dramaturgy primarily highlights the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (Adele Bloch-Bauer I, later also called The Lady in Gold or The Woman in Gold), which Gustav Klimt painted in 1907. The Viennese industrialist Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer had commissioned and paid for the portrait of his wife. After eight years of legal struggle against the Republic of Austria, the work was returned to the heirs in 2006, represented by Maria Altmann, niece of Adele Bloch-Bauer.

The cast also includes Henry Goodman, Antje Traue, Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce, Frances Fisher, Tom Schilling, Moritz Bleibtreu, Justus von Dohnányi, and Ludger Pistor.

The following weapons were used in the film Woman in Gold:


Luger P08

A Luger P08 is used by SS-Oberschütze (Private First Class) Heinrich (Tom Schilling).

Another view of his pistol while lowering it. Note the 11 on the collar which indicates him as a member of the 11th SS Infantry Regiment.


Karabiner 98k

German policemen and some Allgemeine SS soldiers are armed with Karabiner 98ks. Apart from the fact that the Mauser 98AZ Artillery Carbine was the standard issue rifle for the German police, the Austrian police are never seen with their Steyr Mannlicher M1895 short rifles in the movie. While this is not historically entirely incorrect, the German police supported the annexation celebrations of the Anschluss.
