"Hitler must have committed suicide after he found a skinny Jewish kid from Brooklyn stomped on his top hat." The story of a Jewish G.I. that stole a tophat from Hitler's Munich apartment is the latest documentary vehicle by noted independent filmmaker, Jeff Krulik. Famous for "Heavy Metal Parking Lot", Krulik will be viewing "Hitler's Hat" at the MOMA in December. You can read current interviews with the artist here and here, or view his movies in quicktime and realplayer format here. Unfamiliar with his work? Start with these two shorts.

I remember when HMPL was being passed around like samizdat. Glad to see Krulik's doing well.

Pre-emptive Godwin!

Frankly, Hitler's Hat sounds like one of those polite swear words, like Great Leaping Jehosaphat!

"Hitler's Hat! You've got to be kidding."

What a great story! A reminder that sometimes the "sideshows of the big show" are often the most interesting.

Nice story. Also good is the story of Hitler's bathtub, and the photo(s) from that adventure.

Which, now that I think about it, I first read on MeFi, thanks to vacapinta.
