Fascinating portrait that illustrates Hitler's amazing ability to tap into emotional fears and desires and his knack for timing and boldness. One amazing example: by 1923 he already had s small movement and had become known in Munich.. particularly speaking in the beer halls. He finally decides in 1923 to engineer a putsch, a really reckless attempt to overthrow the local government. It is suppressed and Hitler is thrown in jail. But at his trial he asks the judge to speak and the judge allows him to speak for 2 hours!!! Much of it his oratorical frenzy brilliance. This is one example of how he'd gained the sympathies of the judge. Ultimately he only serves 6 months in jail for something that the law stated a minimum of 5 years.
