Bobby Watson plays Hitler in this film that charts his rise to power from his days at the end of World War One. The film takes us through the famous moments including the Munich beer hall putsch, the writing of Mein Kampf, the burning of the Reichstag along with throwing in many of the famous characters of the time – Goebbels, Hess, Himmler, Goring, etc. It's fast moving and it's educational so worth paying attention. The film also touches on the subject of his niece, "Geli", as played by Poldi Dur . Hitler's niece died in 1931 but her death by suicide has been shrouded in mystery.

The film doesn't have an ending as such as it was made in a time when Hitler was still around. so it concludes with some patriotic propaganda as to how he must and will be stopped. The cast are good and look very similar to the real thing. Certain elements of the tale are left out – no Eva Prawn – but the film scores for being different. It provides a glimpse of this man's psychopathic disregard for life and does so without even touching on the concentration camps.
