Storyline

One of the greatest untold love stories of the 20th century, this is the story of Lída Baarová, a beautiful Czech actress, who conquered Germany's silver screen as well as the heart of one of the Third Reich's most powerful men: the Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels. How could Hitler's chief ideologist fall in love with a non-Aryan Slavonic beauty whose race had been designated as inferior by the Führer in "Mein Kampf" and whose country was soon to be occupied by the Nazis? How could one of Europe's most glamorous actresses reject offers of stardom from Hollywood in preference to a dangerous romance with the Nazi monster with a deformed leg? Written by CzechFilmCenter

badder than bad
28 May 2017 | by bevonolaSee all my reviews

this was so bad I couldn't stop watching it. A total waste of great costuming and scenery. As once was said of Kate Hepburn, the leading lady's talent ran the gamut from a to b.The burning fireplace sex scene had me laughing out loud. There was absolutely no chemistry between anyone in this mess, and the cartoon Nazis were about as scary as kittens.
