Kleine War Pictures -- June 28, 2014

100 years ago today, Serbian nationalists assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to throne of Austria-Hungary, in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina.  They also unintentionally murdered his wife Duchess Sophie.  Here is an article from the 29-August-1914 Motography about pioneering producer George Kleine's release of  some early war films.  One featured a "Review of the Austrian Army by Archduke Francis Ferdinand whose assassination caused the war..."  I wouldn't be surprised if most of the other films also came from before the war. 

Read an article about the assassination from the 29-June-1914 New York Tribune on my other blog:
