I too am a Historian
2 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to completely disagree with a couple of the reviews that I read regarding this documentary. As the History Channel and A&E do justice to many of Hitler's documentaries and more current information, we need to remember that this documentary was made in 1962 and not all the information was so readily at hand. I felt that though Marlene Dietrich was very eloquent and understandable as did my history teacher husband. This documentary didn't have all the "re-creations" of History Channel and many, many other well done docs, but for it's time it was finely executed. It used real footage, authentic photos and actual quotations. "Reynard" was used as to compare Hitler and his ego. If you ever read "Reynard" or studied the story Reynard the Fox was medieval Europe's trickster figure, a nasty but charismatic character who was always in trouble but always able to talk his way out of any retribution. I thought that this movie is a beautiful study of human tragedy as well as human condition. I could find no contradictions nor any reason to not study this movie as a piece of art and history. In 1962 this topic was still so fresh and unbelievable in peoples' minds that to see this from their perspective would have been shocking and unbelievable. I believe that this is raw and real and it speaks the truth. It does not romanticize nor glamorize what took place.
