The Nazi Olympics are pretty grand
I saw this whole thing once at a theater presentation of Riefenstahl's works which also included "THe Wonderful Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl" which is a marvelous, although long, documentary.

Anyway....this is amazing. It's really a shame her talent came along during this age.
Maybe now they will let users post Triumph of the Will. Keeps falling out of the Hopper despite being voted up...

Of course I can see just -why- but its a pity.
