Goebbels fancied himself as a great film maker
I viewed this film last night. A Netfix mailer. After watching the documentary of the making of "Nazi Titanic".
So Goebbels came up with the equivilant of $180 million.
Goebbels certainly did not get his money's worth.
I get the part where (for some on known reason) they had a "German" captian on the Titanic. You see he was the only guy who had all the right answers and all the major investor of White Line and of course Astor where all greedy dumbass's. He was also the hero of the Nazi story. He even risked his life to save a little girl while all the greedy Brits where saving themselves. And that is the propaganda portion of the film. You are told that capitalism is very bad...but the Germans have all the answers.
At one time Germany was known for great cinema. But when the great film makers, most of them Jews, fled to the US Germany was by far inferior to Hollywood.
Titanic 1943 was supposed to be the next "Gone with the Wind" as far as production quality, acting, directing and special effects. I think they really missed their mark.
Did you see the scene where the Titanic finnaly went under? Even for 1943 standards it was amature at best.
