I suspect I would not be alone (neither now nor then) in finding film footage of members of the Hitler Youth somewhat erotic. Their assumed politics may perhaps have leaned towards leaving something to be desired, but the outfits were totally gorgeous. It is definitely part of the reason I went out of my way to see Jojo Rabbit, a rather poor and misguided film that does, however, star an absolutely luscious boy actor in the title role (why nothing on BC celebrating him? Or did I miss it?). Unfortunately, like many boy films, the trailer and poster probably shows you almost as much uniformed boy as you get in watching the whole film.|
On the subject of movie posters I can never forget the absolutely beautiful shot of Jamie Bell in the most delightful shortish shorts, vaulting over a gate or a fence on the poster for Billy Elliot. IMHO, and despite the first few trampolining moments of the film actually being pretty hot, the movie never quite lived up to the erotic promise of the poster - nor was there ever a scene in which that vaulting happened!
