DEFA produced a historical film in 1972 called Ltzower. The film was made by W. Walter Janka acted as a dramaturge in the 1955 play of the same name, which was also involved in the scenario. The film is located in the Freikorps of Adolf von Ltzow during the liberation wars in the spring of 1813, but the real past is only used as a film for a socialist patriotic interpretation. The film was not successful in the criticism since the film's implementation of the stage material did not succeed and the production looked like a filmed theatre. The film was also performed in the SSR and Hungary.
