LOL! Roger Ebert - not exactly a big fan of 3D - pointed me to this, and of course the first shot was bratwurst.
Does this mean the death of modern 3D? now whenever anyone goes on about how wonderful Green Hornet 3D was I can say '3D? The Nazis were big fans. You're not a Nazi are you? No? Then you can't like 3D.The Australian film-maker Philippe Mora says he has discovered two 30-minute 3D films shot by propagandists for the Third Reich in 1936, a full 16 years before the format first became briefly popular in the US.
The first of the films, titled So Real You Can Touch It, features shots of sizzling stereoscopic bratwursts on a barbecue while the second, named Six Girls Roll Into Weekend, features actors Mora believes were probably stars from Germany's top wartime studio, Universum Film.
"The quality of the films is fantastic," Mora told Variety.com. "The Nazis were obsessed with recording everything and every single image was controlled – it was all part of how they gained control of the country and its people."
