HITLER'S EPIC:

9

Across Campus

Olympia' Reveals A Hidden Genius

I

By GERALD AHRONHEIM
At The Cinema Guild
The 1936 Berlin Olympic games
were expected by the Nazis to be.
a propaganda windfall for the
"New Order." Counting on the
invincibility of the German ath-
letes, Hitler commissioned his
"ideal female type," the woman
photographer Leni Riefenstahl, to
produce an epic documentary film
commemorating the great and
beautiful deeds to be wrought that
summer.
Jesse Owens and Ralph Met-
calfe, both American Negroes, de-
feated the Reich's best, and kin-
dled der Fuehrer's wrath by mor-
tally wounding the propaganda
expectations. The film was none-
theless completed and released
under the title "Olympia," but
found itself picketed and denounc-

ed by numerous anti-Nazi groups
outside Germany, as was Riefen-
stahl herself,, who had been ru-
mored to have had an affair with
Hitler..
It is amusing to note that the
American delegate to the 1938
Venice Film Festival walked out
when "Olympia" was awarded the
Mussolini Cup despite his impas-
sioned plea in favor of Disney's
"Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs."
"Olympia" is not merely a sum-
mary of an elaborate and ancient
rite, an athletic spectacle; along
with other made-to-order Riefen-
stahl films glorifying the Reich,
it reminds us that genius is often
found clothed in strange garb.
'Lovers of sport, of dance, of the
graphic arts, all will find muchby
which to be entranced. The cam-
era's eye follows fleet, dynamic,
living objects moving against wise-
ly contrasting static backgrounds

which accentuate and set off the
energy and pattern of the motion:
the swift descent of a diver into a
shimmering pool, the lithe 'and un-
expectedly powerful legs of a
sprinter against a vague and soft
haze, the musculature rippling
under the. gleaming hide of a
steeplechase horse, the smooth
grace of the swimmer half-hidden
by the frenzied drops; at times
one may feel hypnotized into a
sort of slow-motion euphoria, only
to awaken with a start as a swas-
tika flashes on the screen.
"Olympia" will be a revelatipn to
many a sports "anti-fan," who
will be shown grace and poise
comparable to the :best of ballet
in a medium no less flexible, por-
trayed with the imagination and
skill of a visual poet. Similarly,
sports fans with no inclinations
towards things "artistic may rec-
ognize the existence of several new

dimensions to athletics in addi-
tion to those of competition, sweat
and records with which they may
be so familiar.
Perhaps more than most films,
"Olympia" must not be pre-
judged on the basis of its origins
or even its political content and
intentions. Its original intended
purposes have been buried with
the ashes of the Thousand-Year
Reich, and it remains as an im-
portant and esthetically justifiable
work of art.
Also on the program is a color
short, "Uiraparu"; using Heitor
Villa-Lobos' 1917 orchestral work
as a score, it depicts the story of
an enchanted bird of the Bra-'
zilian forests, using members of
the Uhuru tribe as the cast. Un-
clad except for ornaments, the
Uhuru's bodies appropriately com-
plement "Olympia's paean to the
human form."
