See the Monuments Men Trailer, Then Read the Story of Dallas’ Robert Edsel, Nazi Treasure Hunter

You may have encountered the trailer for The Monuments Men, an upcoming film written and directed by George Clooney, which started making the rounds online yesterday. The presence of Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Cate Blanchett together in the cast is enough to get me to the theater, even without knowing that it’s an incredible story based on the account written by Dallas’ own Robert Edsel.

Read the 2011 D Magazine profile of Edsel and his work (which happens to feature the greatest illustration the magazine has ever run), and you’ll be even more excited for the movie too.
