Der Furher’s Face

Der Furher’s Face


IN TIME OF WAR, IT’S TYPICAL,
SOMETIMES EVEN USEFUL, TO DEMONIZE YOUR ENEMY. WE STILL SEE THIS TODAY,
WHENEVER A DICTATOR OR DESPOT COMES TO POWER
ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. CARICATURES AND JOKES, NOT ALWAYS IN THE BEST OF TASTE, RISE TO THE FOREFRONT
BECAUSE IT’S OUR WAY OF RELIEVING AGGRESSION. SO IT WAS IN WORLD WAR II. SOME PEOPLE FEARED ADOLF HITLER. OTHERS MOCKED HIM. THE DISNEY STAFF CAME UP
WITH THE IDEA FOR A CARTOON TO BE TITLED,
DONALD DUCK IN NUTZI LAND. GIVING THE ALL-AMERICAN DUCK
A NIGHTMARE THAT HE WAS LIVING IN A COUNTRY RUN BY NAZIS. THE TITLE CHANGED WHEN A SONG
WRITTEN FOR THE CARTOON BY OLIVER WALLACE
BECAME A RUNAWAY HIT, IN A NOW CLASSIC RECORDING
BY SPIKE JONES. IT THEN BECAME ESSENTIAL
TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CARTOON
TO DER FUHRER’S FACE. IT’S EASY TO SEE WHY
THE FILM WAS SO POPULAR. IT’S VERY, VERY FUNNY. REDUCING THE SERIOUS TENETS
OF HITLER’S NAZISM TO SLAPSTICK ABSURDITIES. AND IT GAVE AUDIENCES
A CHANCE TO THINK, AS DONALD DOES,
ABOUT THE FREEDOMS THEY MIGHT HAVE
TAKEN FOR GRANTED. AM I GLAD TO BE A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! DER FUHRER’S FACE,
DIRECTED BY JACK KINNEY WON THE ACADEMY AWARD AS BEST ANIMATED
SHORT SUBJECT OF 1943. [MUSIC PLAYING] Officer:
