Doing 'The Lambeth Walk' Nazi Style- The Gestapo Hep-Cats: British WW2 Parody [View all]

- 1941. Hitler & Co. hated it! During the war, Resistance groups played the British short in Danish theaters and elsewhere. The title comes from the popular song and dance named after the Lambeth neighborhood in London.

- This film short is called "Lambeth Walk - Nazi Style" and was made by Charles A. Ridley in 1941.

Ridley re-edited existing footage of Hitler & Nazi soldiers (taken from Leni Reifenstahl's famous 1934 propaganda film, 'Triumph of the Will') to make it appear they were marching & dancing to "The Lambeth Walk".

> He used the music because members of the Nazi party had called the tune "Jewish mischief and animalistic hopping".

The re-edit was distributed uncredited to newsreel companies in the US and UK.

Made 60+ years before YouTube, it is regarded as one of the first political remix videos.

- British, "Lambeth Walk Me and My Girl," 1939.

- Lambeth, South London, England. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambeth_____

- 3 Min. Clip, "Triumph of the Will," the Riefensthal film about the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. The scenes are used to analyze & discuss the new politcal style adopted by the Nazis & studied by Geoge Mosse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leni_Riefenstahl

- Leni Riefenstahl on the cover of TIME, 1936.
