Prussian grenadiers of the 1760s

I know it's SYW but what the hell - it's a fascinating clip depicting Prussian infantry of the time of Frederick the Great on parade in Potsdam presumably using DDR soldiers as extras doing a modern version of the famous parade march. From the East German 1962 film Minna von Barnhelm. This film was remade in 2006 apparently. Synopsis of the play by Lessing
I notice Zvezda have Prussian SYW grenadiers on their list of 'in production' figures in 1/72 - hopefully this is a tip of the iceberg thing...
