This high-quality sports documentary, photographed in stark b&w by Leni Riefenstahl, features all of the glorious highlights that took place at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games held in Berlin, Germany.

It also features Nazi Leader, Adolf Hitler as he officially proclaims the Games open, as well as footage of Hitler, all decked out in Nazi uniform (swastikas included) saluting the athletes at the opening ceremonies - And, later, Hitler sitting with his buddies, laughing and smiling and cheering his beloved Germany on to victory.

Besides that, this production also includes several "fantasy" sequences that, presented like some sort of a slow-motion ballet, display completely nude male and female figures.

All-in-all - Olympia was certainly well-worth as view.

Leni Riefenstahl was part of Hitler's essential propaganda team. Amazing in her tenacity to create film the way she wanted it, she used groundbreaking methods. I am looking forward to seeing the film after just finishing Daniel James Brown's page-turning account of the US crew win in Berlin's 1936 Olympics in "The Boys in the Boat." I want to see that amazing finish!
