The filmed script opening scene had Adolf Hitler meeting with Nazi Bankers (Freddie Jones, Michael Sheard, Kevin Brennan and Peter Sallis etc). But this was all deleted in post production and replaced with a scene with Hitler and Nazi Professor (Timothy West). See more »

Alec Guinness, most notably known as Obi Wan Kenobi, delivers a stunning performance as the Third Reich's Fuhrer. Relegated to a concrete bunker in once beautiful Berlin, Hitler resorts to ruling a faux empire. Fascinated with models of victorious post war Germany, Hitler lives in painful delusion. When he is coherent, Hitler plans grand strategies with armies that no longer exist.
It is a fascinating look into the warlord's inner circle whilst all is lost.
