  • Description

    This is a reference copy only - check copyright for this material as some may be from the Leni Riefenstahl film "Triumph of the Will".

    Flying through clouds to a top aerial view of a Nazi parade through the streets. A series of Rallies and Parades in the streets and Stadiums with German marching music. Many shots of Hitler and the usual S.S. suspects and officials.
    Mass Gymnastics at an enormous Stadium (seems to be all women seen from a distance). This is followed by more gymnastics by women in white costumes and holding large hoops, this time with a country setting, and much closer.
    More rallies with children and youth. Lots of Hitler beaming and touching his young followers. Child bands and marching.
    A boisterous drinking festival. The German 'Umpa' band have fun and frolics on stage led by a man looking very much like Oliver Hardy. A decadent affair.
    Title "Berchtesgaden". Alpine views at Hitler's mountain retreat with children, dogs, friends and visitors and Eva Braun (?). Some frolics with Goering and Hitler.
    Title "The Hitler Bomb Plot" the remains of a room after an explosion.
    Hitler and senior Military greet Mussolini as he arrives by train. They talk on the platform and then he departs.
    Goering attends a Military funeral with civilian relatives present.
    Hitler visits a hospital and talks to the men with war wounds sitting in their beds.
