Film based on the life of German fighter pilot--the ace-of-aces--Manfred Von Richthofen, [[RedBaron better known as]] The Red Baron.

----

!!This film contains examples of:

* AcePilot: He is without a doubt the TropeCodifier and MostTriumphantExample.
* BlueBlood: The Baron is, and the film makes a point of reminding the viewers that the royal families of the warring European countries are all close relatives.
* CoolPlane: Show a pilot an all red Fokker D triplane with black crosses on the wings and watch them have a total nerdgasm.
* CombatPragmatist: The younger Von Richthofen points out to the Baron that war is about killing the enemy; this is echoed later by the Canadian pilot the Baron twice shot down.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Eton, apparently.
* HonorBeforeReason: Von Richthofen refuses to kill pilots if he can settle for crippling the plane. This has mixed consequences: while it earns the same mercy for him and the others, it results in complications later, when he sees a Canadian pilot he refused to kill repeatedly reappear--a skilled fighter who was probably responsible for many German deaths.
* ManlyTears
* MemeticBadass: Von Richthofen's reputation was carefully fostered by government propaganda.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: the German fighter pilots considered themselves sportsmen, not killers. Von Richthofen leads an unauthorized sortie into British territory in order to drop a wreath on the grave of an enemy pilot. Said pilot is apparently a distant relative, and a schoolmate of one of the other members of the squadron.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A nurse chastises Von Richthofen for his naive view of the consequences of war.
* PuttingOnTheReich: The German military really outdoes itself once ''those'' guys come into power, but even in WWI their uniforms were pretty pimp. Of course, the Baron inspired the iconic style of the fighter ace, which foreign aviators eagerly imitated, and eventually came to be universally associated with aviation in general.
* TokenMinority: The Jewish German pilot, whose most important role seems to be reassuring everyone that it is okay to like Von Richthofen, because he's not one of ''[[ThoseWackyNazis those Germans]]''.
* TooCoolToLive
* WorldWarOne
* WorthyOpponent: The aforementioned wreath had a ribbon that read in part "enemy and friend." In RealLife, Von Richthofen was buried with full military honors by the British.
