Adventure leads to interesting features on DVD, 16 March 2006
Author: wmjiii728 from United States

While the actual film was unsubtle, it was entertaining. Good editing keeps the story moving and the tension of the treasure hunters being hunted works in spite of the mediocre acting.

My interest really elevated when I watched two of the extra features on the DVD from Indiedvd. An interactive map traces and catalogs some of the loot the Nazis were trying to squirrel away at the end of WW II in Austria and other Central European caches. This list is probably as incomplete as the list of documented loot which has been recovered to date.

A very interesting and brief extra feature, titled "Nazi Conspiracies" focuses on the capitalization of Hitler's rise to power in Germany between the wars.

I.G. Farben, a consortium of German chemical industries, is identified as the economic engine which pulled the Nazi train onto the main line. The German industrialists did not do it alone. This was an international effort by German and sympathetic foreign industrialists and capitalists.

Significantly named, for the U.S. viewer are: Standard Oil of America, George Herbert Walker and Prescott Bush. They are cited as investors/partners in the rise of the Nazi Party who profited throughout the war from their investments and were forced to surrender portions of their wartime earnings after the war.

It is interesting that German corporations survived the war and several are doing quite nicely today. A slide within the feature portrayed labels and logos of several current chemical and pharmaceutical companies with their names partially censored, but still identifiable.

The names of the U.S. partners of the Nazis are clarified for modern viewers by naming prominent descendants: Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and George Walker Bush.

Another American name is Dulles, counsel to the Bush/Walker dynasties, rescuer of Nazi scientists and first Director of the C.I.A.

Ike must have known about all of this, and more, and been unable to directly expose it even as President. Hence his veiled warning of the "Military Industrial Complex."
