Bismarck or Bismarck 1862-1898 is a 1927 German silent historical film directed by Kurt Blachy and starring Franz Ludwig, Robert Leffler and Erna Morena. It was made as a follow-up to the 1925 film Bismarck which had also starred Ludwig. Because of this it is sometimes referred to as Bismarck Part II.
