There are many memorable events in this movie, memorable events he remembered, overcoming childhood fears, his education, later service to his country and loyalty to his Commander-in-Chief. I found it particularly interesting that in his early life, his housekeeper was of German ancestry and how she exposed young Gordon to German broadcasts which stayed with him. How later in life he used some of this to his benefit such as singing "Die Fahne Hoch" in the prison shower, completely confounding and overpowering the aggressors. Later, his showing of the then prohibited "Triumph of the Will" to his workforce as the premier propaganda film and the compelling example of control. Always victorious, he even converted prison degradation into an asset. Right or wrong, one must salute him for his honor. Few like him ever pass our way.
