From Back Cover:
"Was Leni Riefenstahl Hitler's lover? No. Was she a Nazi? In the strict sense, no, otherwise, the Americans, the French and, finally, the Germans would not have eventually cleared her. Was she an asset to the Nazi cause? Yes. What she also is, certainly, is one of the suprememartists of the cinema, the greatest woman feilm maker ever....Leni Riefenstahl:A Memoir does not contain a single unspellbinding page. Some books are merely so exciting that you can't put them down. This one is so exciting that you often must put it down, lest you overdose on thrills."
-John Simon, The New York Times Book Review
