The propaganda film ...riding for Germany  told the story of the WWI veteran Carl–Friedrich von Langen, a famous horseman, who won two 1928 gold medals for horsemanship in the Olympics, held in Amsterdam.  This true story was a perfect motion picture vehicle, as von Langen had been seriously wounded in WWI and totally paralysed from his injuries, and told that he would never walk again.  In constant pain, he slowly regained his strength and learned to move from bed to chair to halting steps until he could walk again – and then aspire to ride in the Olympic Games. He not only did so, he won two gold medals against all odds. He was a member of the brown shirt Sturmabteilung from Autumn 1930 and was revered as a hero in the Third Reich. He died from a riding accident during a competition in Germany in 1935.
