No it was not....at least not where it really counts.
We had a really good retelling of the Generalfeldmarschalls life on German TV
, lots or memories from the family and especially his son, who was a pretty popular politician in Germany, mayor of the city of Stuttgart (recently retired), and whose nickname in Stuttgart is "Wuestenfuechsle", which is a cute way to say something like "the little desert fox".
A lot was said about his way into Wehrmacht and his way of dealing with the Nazis, and of course the way the Nazis dealt with him, facts that are instrumental in understanding why Rommel acted how he acted.
Now the movie was never popular in Germany, it is shown occasionally on weekday late nights and holiday afternoons, when nobody sits in front of the TV
really...and James Mason definitely doesn't look like Erwin at all
