Movies At Random: Pour Le Mérite

Happy Monday! Today’s Movie At Random is HU DVD DVD 15045: Pour Le Mérite. This movie is of historical interest rather than enjoyment. It’s a Nazi propaganda film directed by Karl Ritter, described on container as “the most irresponsible and dangerous filmmaker of the Third Reich.”

The DVD container includes the following summary:

“The film traces the fate of the returning pilots from the last, bitter days of the [First World War] through their disillusionment and sense of betrayal by the inflation-ridden, debauched Weimar democracy, the rise of Hitler’s Reich, Germany’s insurrection, and the triumphant rebirth of Göring’s Luftwaffe.”

An interesting part of our collection, especially for anyone interested in history.
