Did You Know?


The film caused such a row upon its initial telecast that a motion was introduced on the floor of Parliament to condemn the BBC for airing it. The BBC initially defended the work but eventually sought to mollify critics by airing a panel discussion taking the film to task, prompting Ken Russell to finally part ways with the network.

This documentary is BRILLIANT! I had the luck of seeing Ken Russel speak and present three of his films at a film festival last year. My friend and I got an interview with him for a news article, he told us the whole story about the Strauss estate. Apparently he swiped a copy of the original reel, and has been carrying it around ever since the 70's. The film depicts Strauss having a picnic with Hitler (because of his supposed connections with the Nazi party) and letting Hitler ride upon his shoulders as they frolic through a feild, handing out Strauss' records which have a swastikas in the centers.

The music goes so well with the scenes, it was a long documentary but I laughed almost all the way through it. I hope others are able to see it eventually.
