Movie Info

Adolf Hitler and the men who helped him engineer the Third Reich had a keen insight into the power of propaganda, and their embrace of it didn't stop with public rallies and political speeches. The influence of Nazi philosophy was introduced into all aspects of German culture, from popular music to movie musicals to animated cartoons. Hitler's Hit Parade is a disquieting documentary assembled from vintage German film clips, newsreels, home movies, and recordings which offer a look at German pop culture during the Nazi era, contrasted with images which present a more realistic view of the wake of World War II and the Nazi "final solution."


Critic Reviews for Hitlers Hitparade

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

While never fully fleshing out its thesis linking the mythology of popular culture with the false ideals propagated by the regime, it does offer an evocative portrait of a country fiddling while it, and much of the world, burns.

Rare film-clips of what passed for Nazi normality do not materialize every day, and pic is decidedly worth a look-see.

This German documentary gathers some of the products of the German culture industry from the 1930's and 40's into a monstrous and fascinating collage.

If not as informative as it could be, Hitler's Hit Parade remains truly disturbing, as we see an entire cultured population led astray by bread and circuses and popular nonsense.

With no intertitles, narration or timeline, Hitler's Hit Parade is more art film than documentary; it's a mistaken strategy.

The flow of images has a terrible inexorability. Watching this movie is like watching people pirouette gaily off a cliff.
