Kingdom_Yugoslavia_1929

 

A very rare item from our collection. Converted from a silent 16 mm film, with titles. 

British production with some of the earliest moving pictures from the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, newly renamed by King Alexander I in 1929.

Apart from the Adriatic coast, Bosnia and Montenegro, this film includes some unique images from Serbia - a Serbian Slava, Kalemegdan, the brand new Royal Palace.

A title for Belgrade reads: 'Rebuilt after complete destruction in the Great War, seems to reflect the history of Yugoslavia, one of invasion-defeat-victory and regeneration.'

    Beautiful moving pictures... really beautiful!!! Few motives in this video are filmed in Trogir, not Šibenik. For example, this screenshot shows the Kamerlengo fortress in Trogir - not a St. Nicholas fortress in Šibenik... There are a few more mistakes where Trogir became Šibenik....
