Old Newsreel

Wow. I never knew Hitler came to New York! Those pictures make it seem like he was really popular, too.

is this real?

I'm pretty sure I have seen all of this before, but never in a single film. Great editing job. Anyone want to do an annotated version to show where the cobbled together clips actually came from? "Triumph of the Will" is a major source.

You mean they've got an actor playing Hitler, and it's not film from his visit to New York?

You can even see everyone's favorite Reichsmarschall in one of the pix. Who's playing Hermann?
