Cruise Nailed Over Hitler's Ball

1/2/2009 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As if "Valkyrie" weren't crap enough on its own, Tom Cruise is in trouble for allegedly using a replica of Hitler's favorite globe in the movie.

Robert Pritikin, an SF ad exec, tells the New York Post he owns the globe Hitler used to plan U-boat attacks, among other things, and was shocked to see a replica of it in Cruise's movie. Pritikin claims he owns the copyright to the globe's likeness so it couldn't be co-opted by neo-Nazi groups.

Lawyers for Pritikin, who created the Rice-a-Roni jingle, say the whole thing could be just an "oversight." Cruise's reps couldn't be reached.

This just sounds ridiculous... a copyright to an object that Hitler used... come ON - that is a part of history and should not be ABLE to be copyrighted.

The only film in which Tom Cruise was credible as a character was "Risky Business". All the rest are nothing but THAT character in different clothes and settings. The baby face worked for a while but NO MORE!

Just another cheap marketing ploy for an over-advertised pile of poop. I bet the movie critics that gave Valkyrie a good review, are laughing all the way to the bank. Hmmmm

The only reason Tom's movie is making any money is because whenever any Scientologist's movie comes out, all of the poor Scientologists are forced to watch it out of their own money at least 10 times each.

Maybe this idiot Pritikin should be sent to a concentration camp, since he seems to be such a huge fan of Hitler and the Nazis!

They would've sucker more people into seeing this piece of poop if they didn't use Tommy in any of the trailers. Especially Tommy saying "We have to kill Hitler' in an American accent. lol
