The Wandering Jew is a 1933 British fantasy drama film produced for the Gaumont-Twickenham Film Studios and directed by Maurice Elvey. It recounts the tale of a Jew (played by Conrad Veidt) who is forced to wander the Earth for centuries because he rebuffed Jesus while he was carrying his cross. The other cast members included Peggy Ashcroft, Francis L. Sullivan, and Felix Aylmer.

Plot

The plot follows the eponymous character's epic journey. He is finally burnt at the stake by the Spanish Inquisition. As he burns, he is forgiven by God and finally allowed to die. The story bears a resemblance to the legend of the Flying Dutchman.

Cast

Portrayal of Jews

Unlike the Nazis' 1940 antisemitic propaganda film, this film portrayed Jews in a favourable light as the victims of unjustified persecution throughout history, in the Spanish Inquisition, for example. The version made under the Third Reich, by contrast, was intended to be virulently antisemitic.[2]
