Looks at the use made by Josef Goebbels of films for disseminating propaganda and Nazi ideology. Looks at Nazi director Fritz Hippler and his involvement with the notorious film DER EWIGE JUDE, with an interview with him from 1991. Also interview with actress Kristina Söderbaum (also from 1991) who had many lead roles, including one in JUD SÜSS, but who did not realise the implications at the time. Finally Wilfrid von Oven (in 1991) talks about the making of KOLBERG and how Goebbels came to identify with it closely and see it as so important that he removed troops from the front line to appear in it. Includes clips from films PATRIOTEN, ES LEUCHTEN DES STERNE, DER EWIGE JUDE, JUD SÜSS, and KOLBERG.
