Hitler: The Last Ten Days is a 1973 film depicting the days leading up to Adolf Hitler's suicide. It stars Alec Guinness and Simon Ward. The original music score was composed by Mischa Spoliansky.
Guinness portrays Hitler with gusto, whereas in real life, Hitler spent his last days drugged and brooding.
Hitler's birthday party is pictured as festive. In real life, Hitler had to be heavily sedated simply to make an appearance. Also, the movie does not show Albert Speer, Hermann G?ring or Heinrich Himmler, who also showed up for the party.
Hitler spends time playing with his wooden model of Germania in the bunker, wishing Albert Speer were with him. The real bunker did not hold this wooden model, and Speer actually did visit him several times.
Hitler is shown being intimate with Eva Braun. In real life, he barely spent any time with her at all in the bunker.
Hitler is depicted as having shot himself almost on a whim, after Eva Braun takes poison to spite him. In reality, Hitler and Braun planned their suicides and had a formal "exit scene".
