Using archive film material never seen before, this docu-drama draws a portrait of the man who gave Hitler his ideas. Adolf Lanz (1874 - 1954) was an impostor, ex-monk, woman-hater, self-acclaimed knight, Roman Catholic and creator of a doctrine whose murderous conclusions were put into action by his most prominent follower, Adolf Hitler. The Aryosophy of Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels also fascinated such personalities as August Stringberg and is re-emerging today in neo-Nazi and New Age publications. Hollywood veteran Leon Askin plays Adolf Lanz. Through original texts, he tells the life-story of this man who felt Hitler had stolen his ideas.
