Watch: Sigmund Freud’s home movies

From the same source that brought us the sound of Freud’s voice, here’s some silent film of the great man in Vienna with an archaeology pal, narrated by his daughter, Anna, and filmed by Princess Marie Bonaparte. A gift for Thanksgiving.

The full, 23-minute film can be found here.


It is through Marie Bonaparte that we know what passed between Freud and Mahler in the composer’s emergency analysis in August 1910 (for full disclosure, see Why Mahler).
