In Indiana Jones and the Final Campaign (1989), the Nazi outfits are real World Battle 2 uniforms, not costumes. They have been present in Japanese Europe by Co-Costume Designer Joanna Johnston.

    pre-pandemic i would travel to Sofia, BG for work. I was always surprised by the amount of nazi memorabilia available from some of the open air markets.

    Still remember watching the HBO “Making of” special of this movie. It had Spielberg right in front of “Hitler” giving him directions. Without skipping a beat he tells the actor that he has an almost uncontrollable urge to kill him. 🙂 Said in Jest and everyone laughed. Dude really did look like Hitler.

    IMDB says it’s the costumes in the book burning scene specifically, not the entire movie. For what it’s worth.

    That’d have to feel weird to put a real nazi uniform on

    Bonus fun fact: LEGO changed the costumes and gave Nazis generic names like “Enemy Soldier” to avoid having Nazis in their LEGO Indiana Jones sets

  6. We are here to see Zee Tapestries!

    Gotta say, that’s a pretty easy way to get your job done.

    “You’ve got 2 months to get these costumes done!”

    *finds real uniforms, takes a nap for a month*

  8. Some of them are actually Czechoslovakian and not German. For example the one Indy wears in Berlin.

    I mean, I know they’re Nazis and all but aesthetically speaking, those uniforms were pretty dope.

    Don’t kill me.

    This isn’t too surprising, especially for that time. A lot of veterans brought home German uniforms, medals, pins, and accessories from WWII. Until relatively recently, you could find tons of genuine Nazi paraphernalia in army surplus shops around the US. Being in Europe, I imagine that would be even easier. Tons of props and wardrobe from the 60s until probably the late 90s were the real thing.

    Woodhouse : Well, I was very fond of a boy at school once. Reggie Thistleton, but he died in the war at Flanders.

    ​

    Rudy : Flanders?

    ​

    Charles : What war was that?

    ​

    Woodhouse : Oh, the Great War.

    ​

    Rudy : They’re all great.

    ​

    Charles : Oh my God, yes! Those Nazi uniforms?

    ​

    Rudy : Hugo Boss.

    ​

    Charles : Shut up!

    ​

    Rudy : Swear to God.

    They were some schnazzy looking fascists

    Much less impressive but I worked on a documentary for WW2 and the Allied (USA) uniforms were real period pieces. I remember asking like “Wow, shouldn’t these be in a museum?!” and apparently it’s cheaper to buy the real ones than to have someone tailor make them.

    This was in 2014-2016 in Hawaii, can’t really remember what the doc was called.

  16. Can’t get much more authentic than that. Unless they used real nazis.

    You can really smell the war crimes, can’t fake that for Hollywood!

    I liked the Austrian version better

    I can hear this guy in this scene.
