Fascinating / Clips Not Seen Before
1 March 2013 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie caught my attention with historical clips which I have not seen before. It presented early clips of Hitler as he was growing up and into his position of Fuhrer. As well, clips of his master of propaganda Goebels and others such as Hindenberg, Nazi youth, etc. As well, it was interesting to see what was happening up to the point where the Nazi's took over power in Germany and Hitler's own rise to power. There were 2-3 speeches shown at various Nazi party rallies as well as odd but interesting performance clip of Josephine Baker and a shot of Buster Keaton. This movie contains no dialogue except for some clip audio, which did not take away from it viewing experience.
