Helmed by legendary director Luchino Visconti, The Damned is an allegorical film that parallels the rise and fall of Hitler's Third Reich. The Essenbeck family runs the German steel industry and attempts to gain favor (and maintain its lucrative contracts) by appeasing the Nazis. But infighting occurs as the elder Essenbeck's children battle for control of the company. Stars Dirk Bogarde, Helmut Berger, Helmut Griem and Ingrid Thulin.
