Description by OLDIES.com:
Richard Basehart delivers an incendiary performance as history's most notorious madman in this searing expos? of the private life of Adolf Hitler. A semi-factual account of the F?ehrer's rise and fall, this rarely seen film follows Hitler's political career from the failed Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 to his suicide in a Berlin bunker at the end of WWII. Inspired by a 1959 interview with a woman who claimed to be his lover, Hitler mixes historical fact with the theory that impotence and an Oedipal complex fueled the F?ehrer's psychotic quest for power. Costarring John Banner (Hogan's Heroes) and Cordula Trantow in a Golden Globe?-nominated* performance as the F?ehrer's beloved niece Geli, Hitler was the final film directed by Stuart Heisler, whose career spawned hits in a wide range of genres including mystery (The Glass Key), comedy (Along Came Jones), musicals (Blue Skies) and drama (Storm Warning).
Basehart gives a fine performance as the demented fascist ruler. Hitler's "political career" is followed from his humble beginnings to his suicide death.
