Free Propaganda!

After Lydia got home from work I zoomed her over to the Missouri History Museum for some... history. Our friends Seago and Margaret met us there. You know what impresses girls on dates? Film studies professors giving free lectures on Nazi propaganda films, is what. Write that down.

I'll just borrow this description from the museum's website: 

Triumph of the Will (Triumph des Willens) is a filmed record of the 1934 Nazi Party Convention in Nuremberg. More than just a documentary, it is an exaltation of Adolf Hitler, who from the moment his plane descends from Valhalla-like clouds is visually characterized as a god on Earth. Join James Scott, professor emeritus of film studies at Saint Louis University, as he shares clips from the film and discusses its significance.
