Description by

In 1880s Vienna, half-Jewish socialite Henrietta Stein needs to silence the rumors of her forbidden romance with Crown Prince Rudolf, so she accepts a marriage proposal from the wealthy owner of a piano company. Heartbroken, the Prince kills himself, leaving Henrietta wed to a man she doesn't love. When World War I arrives 25 years later, Henrietta's sons and husband are drafted, with devastating consequences for the family and their company.

Several of the actors in The Angel with the Trumpet - Eileen Herlie, Basil Sydney, Norman Wooland and Anthony Bushell - appeared in Laurence Olivier's Hamlet. This film marks the first English-language film role for Oskar Werner, who also appeared as Herman in the Austrian version, Der Engel mit der Posaune, two years before. Cinematographer Robert Krasker would win the Oscar for The Third Man in 1951, while costume designer Roger Furze won two Oscars (costume and production design) for Olivier's Hamlet in 1948.
