Description
This book exposes the myths surrounding the propaganda films produced during the Third Reich: that the Nazis were infallible masters in the use of film propaganda; that everything the Nazis said was a lie; and that only the Riefenstahl documentaries are significant to the modern viewer. It reveals the truth, lies, successes and failures of key films designed to arouse hostility against the Nazis’ enemies, including Ohm Krüger -- the most anti-British film ever produced; their 1943 anti-capitalist version of Titanic; anti-English films about Ireland and Scotland; and anti-American films like The Emperor of California and The Prodigal Son. One of the book's major strengths is the wealth of illustrations.
