Olympia (1936)

 

 

 

Director: Leni Riefenstahl.

All about the 1936 Berlin Olympics.  Technically a great film with wonderful cinematography and editing, but for a terrible cause: the promotion of the glory of Hitler and his Aryan super-race. (Some versions of the film eliminate all the scenes with Hitler.)
