Description

Reveals the truth, the lies, the successes, and the failures of the Nazi propaganda film machine Exposing the myths surrounding the propaganda films produced during the Third Reich, this book counters the notions 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 discusses the key films designed to arouse hostility against the Nazis' enemies, including anti-American films like The Emperor of California and The Prodigal Son, the anti-British Ohm Kr├╝ger, anti-English films about Ireland and Scotland, and their 1943 anti-capitalist version of Titanic. With an analysis of all the key films produced by the Nazi regime and a wealth of film stills, this book takes the reader on a journey through the Nazi propaganda machine, and serves as a reminder of the levels to which powerful regimes will stoop to achieve power and control.
