On 1930 Hitler and the Germany already know about 3D, amazing huh?
An Australian filmmaker has been stunned by the technological advances made by Nazi propagandists after uncovering treasure trove of 3D movies, Variety reported Tuesday.
Films shot using 3D technology in pre-war Nazi Germany were discovered in Berlin's Federal Archives.
The two black-and-white 30-minute propaganda films were shot in 1936 -- decades before 3D hit Hollywood in the 1950s.
Australian director Philippe Mora found the films when researching a documentary about how the Nazis used propaganda.
"They were made by an independent studio for Goebbels' propaganda ministry and referred to as 'raum film' -- or space film -- which may be why no one ever realized since that they were 3D," Mora told Variety.
"The quality of the films is fantastic. The Nazis were obsessed with recording everything and every single image was controlled -- it was all part of how they gained control of the country and its people."
One film is a musical called "So Real You Can Touch It" is set in a carnival and features 3D close-ups of sausages on a barbecue.
The other film called "Six Girls Roll Into Weekends" shows young German starlets.
Mora's previous documentary, Swastika, was released in 1973 and showed previously unseen color footage of Adolf Hitler and girlfriend Eva Braun at his retreat.
