Aguirre, the Wrath of God =: Aguirre, Der Zorn Gottes

Noted by legendary film critic Roger Ebert as one of his top ten favorite films of all time, this masterpiece from Oscar-nominated director Werner Herzog is an unforgettable portrait of madness and power. In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro (Allejandro Repulles) leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes into the heart of the most savage environment on earth in search of the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado. As the soldiers battle starvation, Indians, the forces of nature, and each other, Don Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski), "The Wrath of God," is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America and revolts, leading his own army down a treacherous river on a doomed quest into oblivion.

Nuremberg

Loading...
A few months after the end of World War II, with the international community outraged at the excesses committed by Germany, trials against war criminals were convened in Nuremberg, the symbolic seat of Nazism. There was a series of twelve trials, but it was the first that was the most prominent. Top military and governmental figures including Goering, Hess, Von Ribbentrop, and Durnitz were among those first prosecuted. Later trials followed against doctors, bankers, industrialists and others. Entirely composed of historical footage, including some newly discovered archival films, Nuremberg brings to life the challenge of administering justice when crimes are on such a scale. Fifty-five million people had been killed in World War II; seven million civilians in the Soviet Union alone. [...]

Soldier in Berlin

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "The impression that a young Corporal in the Army gets while on active duty in Berlin is vividly related in the first program of Series VI of THE BIG PICTURE. Being stationed in a small area within the "Iron Curtain" places a great deal of responsibility on the Army personnel, but allows them to see the city during free time. This picture gives the viewer a chance to see all of Berlin through the eyes of a GI serving his country there.""--National Archives and Records Administration.

The New German Army

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Appearing in the film is West German chancellor, Dr. Konrad Adenauer. In flashback form, using captured German film of World War II vintage, this chapter traces the rise of the German nation, from the bitter depression days of the 1930s, through the rise of the Nazi party to the infamous "Blitzkrieg" of Sept. 31, 1939 - the invasion of Poland. In striking fashion, the producers of the program summarize, pictorially, the forces which led to the ultimate downfall of Germany as a world power. The postwar partition of Germany is shown, and viewers are shown the famed, "Berlin Airlift" of 1949. An important plank in the founding platform of the NATO nations is the creation of a German Army. The addition of a free West Ge [...]

Germany Today

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "This is the story of a people desolate in defeat, who found the way back with the help of the military force that defeated them. This is the story of the role played by the United States Army in the rebirth of West Germany. "Germany Today" is an documentary of a vast reconstruction job. A cycle has come full turn. The Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces which helped defeat Germany is hailed now by free Germans as friend and protector. No other force in military history has done so much to put a conquered nation back on its feet as the United States Army. Because the U.S. Army has been a bulwark, West Germany remains democratic -- a front line for this nation's security. As the film concludes, the narrator says, ' [...]
