Norbert plays Adolph Hitler in Wolfenstein II
Review by William Hughes
“This version of Hitler is pathetic. He’s weak. He pisses in an ice bucket, rants about his own genius, and then
collapses, calling for his mommy. And yet, he is never less than terrifying. This Hitler is scary because he’s
plausible, a portrait of absolute power that’s been coddled into something rotted and lethally self-indulgent.”

Dame Agatha Christie
Mark Taper Foundation Amphitheatre
A Tribute to Sam Shephard
Friends and family of the late Sam Shephard read excerpts from his Pulitzer award
winning plays and other writings. Norbert Weisser read a selection from “Teleported Man.”
In the German version, for legal reasons, they cut Hitler’s moustache, changed
his name from Fuehrer to Kanzler, got rid of all the Swastikas and dubbed his
outrageous racist language with cleaned up dialogue. Go figure.
Synopsis: Successful financier Wes extends a work trip to drag his dispirited friend Luke up the California Coast from Los
Angeles to Portland in hopes of finding "the one that got away."
