Adolf Hilter (character) IMDB spreadsheet

When looking at the IMDB profile for Adolf Hilter (character), not Adolf Hitler (self), questions begin to emerge with regards to how one might infer a sense of the political climate of a certain time period based on whether the majority of portrayals of the Füher in popular culture are spoofs or dramatic snoozefests. Perhaps even more cultural subtext can be found in the absence of Hilter in TV or cinematic releases of a certain year (e.g. 1986, 1980).

While Hilter’s screen-time in movies and TV may ebb and flow, he is sure to remain a staple of discussion on the Internet for many years to come. (see Godwin’s Law: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin’s_law)
