Title: Adolf and Eva *DW Staff Approved*
Channel Transmitted: History Channel
Category: Documentary / Educational
When Hitler rose to power, he could have had the pick of any number of women... yet he chose a simple girl from Munich to be his mistress. Eva Braun was only seventeen when she first met Hitler and her relationship with him remained a secret until after their death together. This program uses home movie footage and interviews with the people who knew them to help explain the attraction they had for one another and to reveal for the first time the full extent of their intimacy.
Written and directed by Marion Milne and nicely narrated by Michael Kitchen, who stars in Foyle's war, this 2001 documentary treats the relationship between Adolf Hitler (20 Apr. 1889 - 30 Apr. 1945) and his mistress Eva Braun (6 Feb. 1912 - 30 Apr. 1945), who married two days before they committed suicide in their Berlin bunker. The documentary is excellent and is mostly in color, consisting of color and especially B&W newsreel footage and portraits, Eva Braun's famous color home movies, dramatizations that are occasionally overwrought, and informative interviews. Interviewed are authoress Gitta Sereny (Albert Speer, 1995), Hitler's housekeeper, his SS bodyguard, Braun's housemaid, and her cousin. Not interviewed is Hitler's stenographer, Traudl Junge (1920-2002), who recently appeared in Blind spot (2002) as well as in World at War (1973-74). Adolf & Eva also has readings from Hitler's speeches and writings and from Braun's 1935 diary, The video quality is very good to excellent, including of the newsreel footage and, significantly, of Braun's home movies.
