Trivia Geli's lines when she is smoking with the driver, just after being told her uncle is "a good man", ("he's a monster... you can't imagine what he asks of me") are Geli Raubal's actual words, taken directly from her journal. Allegedly, Adolf Hitler drew a series of pornographic sketches of her, titled "Miss Raubal in close-ups and angles to which any professional model would decline posing for." See more »
