Product Description

Wealthy businessman, glamorous playboy, daring adventurer - Charles Bedaux was all these and more...much more. This acclaimed documentary tells the true story of Bedaux, who captured fame and fortune in the 1920’s by inventing a new method for modernizing industry. Before long, Bedaux was hobnobbing with the rich, powerful and famous all over the globe - including Nazi Germany. In his leisure he planned an elaborate expedition - a "champagne safari" - through the Canadian Rockies, documented for posterity by legendary cameraman Floyd Crosby (HIGH NOON). But Bedaux’s world was about to collapse, as charges of collaboration and treason enveloped him. Long lost archival footage and interviews with historians, writers and relatives illuminate the story of this enigmatic, megalomaniacal American industrialist whose alliance with the Nazis helped them rise to power.

Review

A brilliant illumination of a storied life that is still shrouded in mystery. --NY Daily News

Charles Bedaux was a facinating hero of the industrial age! He saved countless Jews from NAZI peril and perfected a system for production that revolutionized industry in that time.His "safaris" weere like novellas of the rich and their exploration value is still unmeasured. This video is a fine watch" that should be seen

This is a well detailed look at a very important man who is today all but unknown, yet who made a huge impact on the globe during his lifetime. The film intercuts the story of Bedaux's life with newly discovered film of a weird overland trek through Canada before his subsequent misadventures in WWII. The connection between the two events is scant, though, and the film doesn't really make enough of an effort to link the two. Still, this is an entertaining look at someone who lived a privileged life and who died under mysterious circumstances when he could have exposed the extent of US industry's involvement in subsidizing the Nazis.

I did enjoy learning some interesting stuff about what the political climate was really like during that time. It is amazing to think of nazis and jews and opposing sides all mixing together at social events in a kind of neutral ground, this guy's estate. and the rest of it is pretty bizarre and fun. ok i guess it was pretty good actually, but I wasn't blown away. also all the stuff about how he influenced the industrial system and helped to objectify the workers as basically machines was pretty fascinating. If you're biographical stuff and historical interest this is a hidden gem.
