    The man in question here is August von Mackensen.

    He became 85 on 6 December 1934. This enables a reduction of the clip's current date range of 1930-39.

    Great - thanks. We've put the date as 1934-1935 as the dates on our site are for when the film was released rather than originally filmed.

    We'd love to list both on the site, but we just don't have the information. So for the sake of consistency...
