'Valkyrie' Producers Facing Lawsuit Over Use Of Hitler's Globe
The movie, which tells the true story of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, includes scenes featuring the Nazi leader's famous globe, on which he planned his military strategy.
Now the owner of the real globe is contemplating a lawsuit against film bosses for breach of copyright, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.
Art collector Robert Pritikin paid $100,000 for the globe in 2007, and copyrighted its likeness to prevent its use by right-wing propaganda groups.
And he was reportedly "stunned" to see a replica version used extensively in Valkyrie.
Porn director-turned-private-eye Paul Barresi, who is investigating the case, says: "Pritikin believes the globe should be used as a teaching tool so the lessons of Hitler's nightmare can keep history from repeating itself."
