LENI  RIEFENSTAHL  (3157-1993)
MILITARY FILM INDUSTRY

 

What can be said about LENI RIEFENSTAHL that has not already been said?

     *  Incredibly beautiful;
     *  Very talented actress;
     *  Exceptional film director and producer

After ending her career as an actress, she produced and directed many films for the Reich and the most famous of all is "Triumph of the Will!"  Cinematography techniques that she pioneered have been used in a great many films and in some cases, veritably copied.

In the "Circle of Life" there were scenes borrowed from "Triumph of the Will";
In "Jewel of the Nile" the entire series of scenes of the coronation of the sheik  are right out of the earlier film of the Congress of the Third Reich in Nürnberg.

To say that this lady was a genius is a huge understatement.
