Wernher von Braun for Disney

December 12, 2012

As we talked about in our episode on Operation Paperclip, Wernher von Braun was one of the beneficiaries of Allied largesse, as his human rights violations during World War II were ignored to get him to work on American rocketry. Von Braun also worked for Disney on educational films, like the one above, discussing America’s space program. This video raises another conspiracy, though: was “Wernher von Braun” just Marlon Brando doing an accent? As far as I know, they were never seen together…
