Despicable woman. May she burn in hell.

In my opinion, the 1936 Olympics documentary was her magnum opus. So many things you see nowadays such as swim racers underwater, divers in slow motion, pole vaulters filmed from below, all sorts of sports shot from odd angles -- she pioneered them all.

It was never an affair, she was fascinated by his nature and obsessive personality. He was a companion but never a lover, Hitler could never give himself so.

In her youth, she was a silent movie star in Germany. She was one of the very few to survive an affair with Adolph Hitler. She died 8 Sep 2003.
