I will be going over the overall message of the film and how they go about being anti-Semitic and how powerful this movie actually was for the Nazi party. What went in to this movie and what happened to the actors after the war was over and what was the true power of this anti-Semitic film are a few questions that will be answered in my paper and why this movie was more effective than the other films that were made. When this movie was first put into production it was actually delayed for quite a while, because Joseph Goebbels, the head of the films production wanted only the best actors for his film and that was proving to be a problem for a period of time. One of the main problems was since during these war times many Jews were being blamed for many of the problems going on and the concern of these was that the people watching this would see and assume that the people playing the Jews on screen are really Jews and that would have put a damper on the films effectiveness and before they would even do it Goebbels had to make an announcement that all of the people in this movie was a true German and not Jewish. Image was crucial to survival in these times.

The weakness of the democratic system, and the Weimar Republic. From the very beginning, Hitler had a reason to pick on the Weimar, it was clear that it would not last. The strength and mass growth of the Nazis helped Hitler.
The Germans took the streets of Berlin and started to protest against losing the territories of the Danzig and Posen after the treaty of Versailles. On June 28, 1919, the Germans signed the treaty of Versailles. Thesis: The Treaty of Versailles brought about peace in many of the countries. But not in Germany because the Germans weren’t happy with the Treaty and they felt that with Treaty ending the War they had lost their dignity and pride. The Treaty also helped give the rise to Adolf Hitler and leading Germany into World War 2.
This was because Schleicher’s ‘policy of diagonal’ only attracted Strasser, for which he was ousted from the Nazi party. This was Hitler’s main opponent in the quest for leadership of the nazi party. The Weimar Republic's demise and Hitler’s rise to power are very inter-linked. This can be shown by the static enrolment for the Nazi party when Stresseman brought Germany into the era of the ‘golden years’. It could be said that opposition to democracy rose and fell in harmony with movements in prosperity.’ Hitler exploited this with his political astuteness of knowing what and when to promise things in the ‘new’ Germany.
The Republic had to face many external factors, which they had no power upon. These external factors did 'push' the Weimer Republic to its failure. The rise of Hitler also helped the Weimer Republic to fail. He had power over the German people; they believed him and listened to him. Yet, this was not all.
Specifically themes such as the rise of the cities, the noir cities, the consumption and capitalism, as well as the suspicious relationships, are completely engaging themes that make movies stand out in the film making industry. Techniques such as camera placement, movement, as well as color and sound effects, are the essentials to a remarkable movie. What would the cinematic industry be without these? Maybe not as prodigious as it is today. Works Cited Krutnik, Frank.
Whether employed in narrow focus for military training and indoctrination or more widely as documentaries, newsreels, cartoons, dramas, and comedies produced for mass consumption, film played a significant role during the war years in promoting and sustaining sentiments of national unity and patriotism. Even before America’s involvement in World War II, German films containing Nazi propaganda were shown in the United States. The atrocities of the Holocaust had not yet begun, so America had not banned these films from being shown, and had no idea of what was to come. Newsreels, films that showed views events happening around the world, were filmed in Germany and were full of propaganda. Fox, Paramount, and Hearst represented the American newsreel companies in Germany and operated under the stringent supervision and constant surveillance of the Reich Ministry of Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda.
The French New Wave movement was heavily influenced by a variety of figures, events, and cultural changes that led to its creation. Responding to the lackluster film industry following WWII, critics and directors saw the New Wave aesthetic as an opportunity to revolutionize the world of film by challenging the mainstream film industry and its unquestionable influence. France during World War II was a dark place for a film industry that had once experienced such successes. As a result of Nazi Germany’s occupation, the selection of films available in France was severely limited. With Hollywood films strictly banned, theatres during the war mostly exhibited German imports and only a handful of domestically produced and heavily censored features.
Welles who would like to set up lights himself placed a grave importance on the lighting of the film. The lighting helped to compliment many of the films scenes by adding an effect of emotion. In scenes where the shadows would be more apparent there was normally something dark occurring, such as the scene where Kane is seen standing on his own after his second wife leaves him. As said by Roger Ebert “Welles created a gloomy dark visual the film world had yet to see.” The use of these techniques is seen by some as the pioneer or predecessor to the genre of noir that soon followed the film’s release. In addition, Kane had brought a great influence for French critics and filmmakers.
The similarity of Hynkel to Adolf Hitler wasn’t exactly a coincidence. Being Chaplin’s first sound film with dialogue, he decided to make it an attack on fascism. The leading symbol of fascism in that time, of course was Hitler. In the film, Hynkel is portrayed as a loud-mouthed fanatical fool. (McDonald, Conway, Ricci, 206) Chaplin always disliked the idea of being compared to the German ruler, despite the obvious similarities.
