Great episode... Doe anyone know the actual stock music used for this specific episode... I know that most of the stock music used for most of these episodes are from Bernard Herman and the Twilight Zone... but I would very much would like to know the specific music used for this episode.. would greatly appreciate any information or referrals to this question.... Thanks!

Interesting and unique perspective. Shows her delusional view of Adolf. Bravo to James Agate Jr. who wrote one of the best CBSRMT episodes ever. Here, you have a WWII story where Eva Braun was friends with the Dictator for many years, married to him for about 40 hours, and then widowed for several seconds before she took her life with cyanide poisoning. They were 23 years apart, but a relationship that was barely mentioned in history books. He was a vegetarian, a non-smoker, way too obsessed with perfection, and what's weird is that he became sweet & tender ONLY to Eva because she didn't oppose to him or his beliefs. Not only that, there's an actual photo of Eva dressed up like Al Jolson from the 1927 film THE JAZZ SINGER. These 2 were a perfect match made in the Inferno. Anyway, the voice talents of Roberta Maxwell (as Eva Braun) and Louis Turenne (as Hitler) were dynamic. Let's not forget Joan Shay (as Isle Braun: Eva's sister) and Robert Dryden (as Martin Borden) for they too were superb in their roles. The music & sound effects made this story epic at its finest, felt like you were actually there on April 30th, 1945 when the 2 were minutes away from death. As for Tammy Grimes, she did a masterful job as host. Not only she told important facts about the relationship, but her Epilogue where she talked about the movers & shakers that have changed the world, is the most pensive thing for us fans to wonder about our whole lives. This is one episode that history buffs will enjoy listening to!

This was an absolutely amazing episode for all of the wrong reasons. Though it romanticized the world's worst dictator whom was responsible for the genocide of 6 million Jews, it did attempt to capture the final moments of Adolf Hitler and Ava Braughn's life. A great listen--5 stars.
