that's unbelievable, even then the few uniforms were in private hands, this stuff was never available for feature films, all that was 100% "properties" for movies, tailor-made.
And that's exactly the problem, the uniforms weren't that sharp and clean, who can recreate such a horror ?
But it makes no sense to speculate, for many viewers the Nazis were and are "cool", that's frightening.
This fascination with evil is in all of us, Hollywood has inspired everything, whoever denies that, is not speaking the truth.
P.S. I remember an international film outfitter, Mr. B
. from Wilhelmshaven supplied film studios worldwide with German vehicles, I will not mention his name. The man earned an ass full of money, he had everything, every motorcycle, every tank, German anti-aircraft guns were nothing special.
The very first time, I saw a german MG 81 (Zwilling)
for 2500,- german Mark.
At that time, large holes had to be cut into the old tanks, 30 centimeters in diameter were required, in order not to be considered a weapon of war.
I never saw a MG 81 "Twin"
again, the price at that time was 2500,- Mark, very expensive at that time.
Everything had a price, absolutely everything, luckily we didn't have the money...
