Everything I know about 20th century history I learned from this movie and Bubba Ho-tep.

Just happened to watch this over the weekend. Going in, I had assumed that the killing Hitler was near the end of the war when it was too late to make a difference, and well, I guess I was right that it was too late to make a difference.

I liked the movie overall, though faking his death and then openly going to public events it town didn't really make much sense to me.

If you would like some less US-centric 20th century history I can recommend Norwegian Ninja (Kommandør Treholt & ninjatroppen)

This movie was beautiful and it had me crying like a baby. It is like the classic "war veteran badass called out for one more job" story, only in a way that completely eschews toxic masculinity. The relationship between the two brothers... Just beautiful.

I don't think he meant to fake his death. I think he just took his time getting back home, his own way.
