New 3D footage made as Nazi propaganda movies has been disovered.
Discovered by Australian director Philippe Mora, the films date from 1936, pre-dating Hollywood foray into 3D by over a decade.
The first, named So Real You Can Touch It, shows bratwursts cooking on a barbecue. The second is called Six Girls Roll Into Weekend and stars actors believed to be from Germany’s wartime studio Universum Film.
Speaking about the films, Mora said: “The quality of the films is fantastic. 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.”
He addded: “They were made by an independent studio for Goebbels’s propaganda ministry and referred to as ‘Raum film’, or space film, which may be why no-one ever realised since that they were 3D.”
