James Cameron's Curious Obsession with Nazi Sympathizer Leni Riefenstahl

Mark Musser

For Earth Day I put together a piece that deals with James Cameron's curious interest in Leni Riefenstahl, the infamous director of the Nazi propaganda film "Triumph of the Will." Both blockbuster movies "Titanic" and "Avatar" are heavily influenced by Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl. Americans, of course, loved both movies.

Before you say that this is a bridge too far, or too much of a stretch, read the article from start to finish and look up the links if you need to. I have been sitting on this particular article for almost a half a year pecking away at it and getting suggestions from others. There is no small amount of research in this including watching a few of her movies under my belt plus a German documtary on her. The American Thinker editor changed the title to the more generic "The Green Nazis" which actually hid the piece to some extent. Mine was "James Cameron's Curious Obsession with Nazi Sympathizer Leni Riefenstahl." The AT editor may have saved me a lot of grief perhaps -
