"The twilight of the gods": the final ten days of Adolf Hitler on allied film / by Charles James Oliver.
The life of Adolf Hitler may be well documented and analyzed, but the film industries of the countries that defeated the German armies in World War II have paid little heed to it. Instead, movie makers from the Allied Powers have focused on a time in Hitler's life when he was a shadow of his former self: his last ten days. The initial films of this genre were unrelentingly harsh on Hitler, providing retribution for the survivors of the war. As time passed and the target audience for films about Hitler changed, however, the focus of such films changed as well, becoming less judgmental and more analytical. This thesis analyzes three major films on the subject, all produced in Allied countries and intended for a primarily English-speaking audience.
