Trivia

Acording to fellow actor, ('Peter Ustinov'), ('Alec Guinness') was so determined to play Adolf Hitler that when he heard rumor that ('Dustin Hoffman') was first for the role, he went out and bought a Hitler costume. With a photographer they went to an isolated street in London to take publicity photos of him in costume. Occasional passers-by paid no attention to this, except for one policeman who wandered up to tell the actor that he was parked in a no parking area. The policeman let him off without a ticket as the policeman told him he had "no desire to spend the rest of [his] life in a concentration camp." See more »

Alec Guinness' realistic portrayal
3 June 1999 | by (Indianapolis, IN.) – See all my reviews

"Hitler: The Last Ten Days" is watchable chiefly due to the remarkable portrayal of the Nazi dictator by Alec Guinness. Guinness sought to portray Hitler as a man and succeeds in his efforts.

The opening credits, narrated by Alstair Cooke are noteworthy in giving a 5 minute history lesson bringing the viewer up to date - April 20, 1945 in the Berlin bunker of Adolph Hitler. The acts of Hitler in the final 10 days of his life, bizarre and murderous to the end, are worth watching only because of Guinness. He has the mannerisms and although I've never met Hitler, after watching this film, I felt that I had. The physical resemblance is startling.

Most frightening scene: Hitler's worst tantrum ever after finding out he had been "betrayed" by his generals. Alec Guinness goes from hysterical rage to sobbing "the war is lost" and makes you feel the terror his underlings must have felt.
