** Not just a badass army, but the SS in particular was also an [[ArmiesAreEvil evil army]].

A 1935 film directed by Leni Riefenstahl and funded by [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany the German National-Socialist government]]. It was shown once a year for {{propaganda|machine}} purposes in every German cinema until 1945. Despite its loathsome subject matter (the 1934 Nazi Party Congress), the film was wildly successful at its intended purpose and to this day it forms a reference point for people's mental image of Nazi regime. Moreover, the extent that ''Triumph of the Will'' continues to be regarded as an innovative and groundbreaking film has its roots in a concerted effort by the German state to promote the film as an ideal in contrast to various forms of expression the Nazis disapproved of.

Ultimately, the Triumph of ''Triumph'' is one of budget. With the full backing of the state ''Triumph of the Will'' sought to convince both foreign and domestic audiences that the Nazi regime was unstoppable through sheer force of spectacle. Surprisingly (or not) the film was since proved highly influential--the medal scene that ends ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]'' is a direct lift from the scene in this movie where Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Viktor Lutze lay a wreath at the memorial for President Hindenburg.

* StockParody: Probably one of the most referenced films of all time: everything from ''Film/CitizenKane'' to ''Franchise/StarWars'' to ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' to ''Disney/TheLionKing'' borrows imagery from this movie, along with the innumerable documentaries who cannibalize its footage. More generally our collective image of Nazis (marching masses of soldiers, Hitler's manic speech-making) largely originates here.

** At least, zero ''explicit'' references to Jews. One of the shown short excerpts from the speeches made during the Party Congress does speak about the need to keep races -- and the German race specifically -- pure.

%%* BalconySpeech* BalconySpeech: Hitler does a few of these.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Riefenstahl managed to make a feature-length Nazi propaganda film that made zero references to Jews.
