This is an Odd One. From the Baffling Title to the Depressing Content that has a Boy and His Dog, well that would be Saying too Much. Suffice to say that this is one of those Movies that is Hard to Find. It doesn't fit Well into any Category and it isn't Exactly a Good Time at the Bijou.
It is a Story about American Propaganda and Prejudice with the Persecution of People on the Homefront that Our Country is at War. Still goes on Today. This is WWI and the German-Americans were the Victims in this Film.
Released in 1933 (a decade plus after the War ended), it is Interesting to Note that the Original NY Times Reviewer Chastised Hollywood saying that this is Old News (Germans being Ostracized in America during the War) so why did they even bother.
Really. That is a Question that Hardly needs an Answer to Anyone with Half a Brain, so Shame on You NY Times. Truth is, a Reminder like this Gut-Wrenching Movie is Needed Periodically to Enlighten New Generations and Keep Them on Their Toes. To be Mindful of Propaganda and Bigotry, and Prejudice.
Overall this Movie with Barbara Stanwyck and Otto Kruger is Quite Gripping and although the Final Act is Overdone for a Finality that is Contrived, the Remainder of the Film Manages to Draw the Audience into its Message that Love Outside the Family and Yes, Outside the Country can be Acceptable and Even Preferable than Marrying One's Cousin.
