Yeah .. he even filmed speeches by Goebbels before WW2.. ! and in his 70,s when he shot Indianan Jones ..

WOW didn't know that!

 

One thing I did know is that he didn't use a light meter on Indiana Jones. :)

Yes there is a famous story he was filming in Germany ,just before WW2, with some huge old camera that made some big sudden noise .. Goebbels stopped speaking and a few hundred brown shirted thugs turned round giving him the evil eye .. I think he later described it as "a very uncomfortable moment".. it was his pre war footage.. and the actual attack of Poland ,that got him a job at Ealing Studios..

 

Yes I guess a few of those guys could pretty much throw their meters away .. :)
