(1948, aka CONFORM OR DIE) A poorly edited, yet intriguing documentary about Hitler and Mussolini. There are some interesting home movies of Eva Braun and her scantily-clad girlfriends swimming, too! More vivid is the gut-wrenching footage of Nazi atrocities (NO! we don't recommend this for the kids).Written by
While people were off fighting in World World II there were many back home producing documentaries on the subject so that people here could see what was going on. These documentaries were usually propaganda pieces and this one here is certainly that.
Directed by Dwain Esper (MANIAC) this film appears to take a bunch of newsreel footage and possibly other documentary footage and edit them together. I'm not going to say this is the most entertaining WWII doc that I've seen but there's enough interesting footage to make it worth watching to history buffs.
There's a lot of footage of Hitler "enjoying his freedom" as we see him playing around with his kids as well as girlfriend Eva Braun. There's a lot of footage of various German soldiers enjoying their time at a lake. There's also some footage that deals with Mussolini. There is also some graphic stuff dealing with the deaths that they caused.
As I said, this here is edited together from several different sources and it got released under a number of titles including THE STRANGE LOVE LIFE OF ADOLF Hitler, HITLER'S LOVE LIFE and CONFIRM OR DIE. The film has enough interesting stuff if you've seen all the other WWII documentaries but if you're new to the genre then it's best to start elsewhere first.
