when cross boy scouts with the Nazi, what you got ? Hitler youth
22 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me tell you something ,my days as a boyscout was a night mare. Nothing but authority but looking at this it wasn't as bad. At a Hitler youth camp all the young boys are working on a project, creating gliders. You hear the innocent back ground music of a family picture. It was a family picture ,a Nazi one. These scouts for the Nazi cause are being supervised by their Nazi scout masters, played by Maltie Yeager and an actor who also played one of the teachers, in the Fuerzangbowl, with his red hair still dyed black.Each Nazi scout is building their own glider plane. The funny part of this movie is that there is some what an anti authority stance that in real life the Hitler scouts would never get away with. Those youthful Nazi boys pull a prank against the cook. While a sleep they sneak in the kitchen and steals his pot and pans Its the day that all the Hitler youth groups have a jamboree and display their glides. One of the boys takes off and flies his glider while you Nazi citizens watch him. The supervisors and the head of the Nazi scouts visiting find his flying his plane until he wreck his plane. Now he and his friends have been disqualified against participating in the group. His grand father ,played by Albert Florath, character actor stalwart of U.F.A., tries to convince his grandson to check to see what happen by rebuilding a model of the plane to see what happen.He even talk over to the Nazi scout master Yeager about this. His grandson tries but can't figure out why the plane fell apart. Later on at a restaurant His Superviser Yeager has a talk over this with him about this.Later they both agree to start all over again. Maltie helps him rebuild the plane and succeeds in not crashing the second time. An up grade print from 35mm resources from transit films is available at Reich's Kino. 03/23/11 The actor who had his hair died dark from his original color red who was the teacher in the fuerzanglebowl who's now a Nazi scout leader in this picture was Lutz Gotz,
