Leni Riefenstahl
Leni Riefenstahl A Life By Trimborn, Jürgen, 1971- Book - 2007 | 1st American ed.

This well-researched biography, written by German art historian, Jurgen Trimborn, takes an in-depth look at the life and times of Leni Riefenstahl, who (as a Nazi collaborator) was best known for being "Hitler's" filmmaker.

If nothing else - This woman was quite a remarkable film director, as is clearly evident from her two most famous films, "Olympia" and "Triumph Of The Will", which are both widely regarded as being the greatest and most innovative documentaries ever made (but they are also viewed as an insidious glorification of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich, as well).

This compelling biography (that often boasts of relying on new sources) creates an impressive historical investigation for the inquisitive reader that untangles the dark past of a woman of exceptional gifts who was blindly and professionally corrupted by ruthless personal ambitions.

This book also includes 24 pages of b&w photos, as well.
