Hidden Fuhrer: Debating the Enigma of Hitler's Sexuality

German historian Lothar Machtan caused an international uproar with his 2001 book The Hidden Hitler, which asserted that Hitler was gay. But judging from this video documentary, the furor over the fuhrer may be overblown. Scholars, journalists, and activists weigh in on the dictator's sexuality, presenting sketchy evidence (the fact that he destroyed most records of his past is offered as proof that he was gay) and much speculation. It's fertile territory for savvy directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), who've proved themselves adept at transforming gossip into entertainment. In English and subtitled German. 80 min.
