Hitler: The Rise of Evil (2003)
Harvey Friedman: Friedrich Hollaender
Friedrich Hollaender : Everyone's depressed - bad for the economy but excellent for cabaret. German people don't need democracy, for God's sake, they need music, laughter, someone to tell them what to do so they can get in line and follow.
Ernst Hanfstaengl : Don't tell me you've become a nationalist?
Friedrich Hollaender : I'm a satirist, Ernst. The most dangerous politician of them all. Speaking of humor, I'm going to hear Hitler tomorrow - would you like to come?
Ernst Hanfstaengl : The anti-Semite?
Friedrich Hollaender : The National Socialist anti-Semite. Call them "Nazis" just to piss them off. I hear he's fascinating.
Ernst Hanfstaengl : Well, that's very open-minded of you.
Friedrich Hollaender : You mean for a Jew, yes? I'm not supporting him, for God's sake. I need new material.
