The Good German

The Good German is an Academy Award-nominated 2006 feature film adaptation of a novel by Joseph Kanon. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, and Tobey Maguire, the film uses archival Russian footage and archived film from Corbis -- edited to blend with scenes shot on soundstages and on Universal Studios' backlot -- to tell a tale which on the surface is a murder mystery, but which weaves elements hinting at NASA's origins -- and the American postwar employment of Nazi rocket scientists. Shot in color, (which allowed the use of faster film than available black-and-white film stocks, and afforded the ability to use green screen techniques) the film was reduced in post-production -- through the use of a D.I. -- to grainier black and white, to blend with the (carefully restored) archival material.
