This Film's Photographic Proof Could Suggest How Goering Smuggled In Cyanide
1 February 2010 | by (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I found this film's portrayal of the Nuremberg trails more believable in approach compared to other likewise attempts by production companies. The acting, character likeness and storyline direction fall well within sensible guidelines leaving me not distracted by any imperfections that are so notable in the other portrayals of this event to date.

I found it strange that the son of Lt. Jack 'Tex' Wheelis was so willing to condone the rumour of his father's involvement in supplying Goering with the poison without absolute proof of his father's involvement. It made me wonder if he was not paid to say such so as to make history's record a falsity, only to save face to a "shotty" American military-security arrangement during the trial -- very embarrassing.

In the end, Goering claimed in a letter to his jailer that he has the poison with him all along. Though it could be true he had it in his baggage first (in the baggage locker) and then later managed to retrieved it with the assistance of Lt. Wheelis, I am inclined to believe that would have been an unreliable, tactical move for Goering to accept prior his actual surrender. After all, Goering had plenty of time to think out an "exit" strategy before turning himself in and while well-knowing his pending doom. Maybe he sought out a doctor and had an extending pouch cut into his mouth on the upper-left side. This would account for the photographically noticeable cyst-like bump on Goering's left cheek at the 01:12:50 mark of the film.

I believe my concept here would be more in tune to Goering's personality of wanting to "shove it" to the Americans in beating the hangman at his own game. This would excuse as a "cover up" why the American authority's said a body cavity concealment would have been impossible simply because of the size of the brass tube that the glass capsule of cyanide came in. However, In my scenario, Goering would not have needed the brass tube, only the glass capsule upon which he could either punch at or dig out and then bit upon in the event of an emergency discovery.

Whichever way Goering's arrogance managed to achieve it's end it definitely did have the last say in this matter. A brilliant tyrant.

Again, check out the 01:12:50 mark of this movie.... interesting !!
