    Default Original Photo & Negative of Hitler & Mussolini

    Pictured are an original photo and glass negative of Hitler with Mussolini at the Reich's Chancellery in Sept/1937. Plus several other "somewhat famous folks in the company". The photo was attributed to Hoffman for his photo book "Mussolini Erlebt Deutschland" / Mussolini Experiences Germany. Story line is Hitler did not like his pose, therefore, this photo was not used. There is a similar photo that was used in several books. This photo does not have Hoffman's imprint. The photo is printed on Agfa - Lupex paper. The negative is on thick period glass. I guess the glass negative was made so they could mass produce pictures for magzines, newspapers etc. I was shocked to find out that Mussolini was fluent in German, and gave a speech at the olympic stadium, and on German radio. He toured Germany and while there made the famous statement, "When one has such a friend "Hitler". You go with him through thick and thin, in good times and in bad. I really liked the picture even if it was a reject. I was confused by Keitel's rank in the picture. He made full General in 1937, but I do not know what month.

    I cut off the guy on the far right in the other scan. I'm not sure who he is, so here is another scan. Anybody recognize the guy in the center wearing glasses, standing between Hitler and Borman?

    The gentlemen are: L-R Keitel, Mussolini, Hitler, Dr. Theodore Morell(Hitlers personal physician), Bormann, Goering, Himmler, Hesse and Wilhelm Bruckner(Hitlers senior personal adjutant).

    The picture, i think, was taken during Mussolini's visit to Germany in September 1937.

    Bruckner was the one I was unsure of. Thanks for you comments guys. I'm still alittle puzzled by Keitel's rank for 1937.

    Since Hermann is directing the action, perhaps scoping out a place in Berlin to get some good spaghetti for Il Duce
