Descriptions

Ludwig Amann is impersonating both Capt. Alfred Dreyfus and Émile Zola. Both were persons of interest to the public in those years. Capt. Dreyfus because of the "Dreyfus Affair" and Émile Zola as an important literary figure who also took an important role in the "Dreyfus Affair" by publishing the open letter titled "J'accuse" ("I accuse") where he accused the French government and military of anti-Semitism and of falsely accusing Capt. Dreyfus. The shortness of this film is probably due to Amann simply impersonating them by dressing up.


The famous quick-change artist Ludwig Amann impersonates Emile Zola and Alfred Dreyfus.
