'Valkyrie' Producers Facing Lawsuit Over Use Of Hitler's Globe

ValkyrieBosses of Tom Cruise's new movie Valkyrie are reportedly facing possible legal action over the use of a Nazi prop in the film.

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."
