The devil has his work cut out for him, and doesn't appear likely to escape being replaced by the German leader. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

Adolph loses his Hess while the censors slept.

The Devil With Hitler has to be viewed in retrospect not so much for what it was poking fun at but more so for what wasn't known at the time regarding the full extent of the concentration camps and other atrocities. It is primarily Adolf(Bobby Watson), Benito(Joe Devlin) and Suki Saki(George E. Stone) in a series of Three-Stooges routines, with the premise that the Board of Directors of Hell has put the Devil (Alan Mowbray)on notice they intend to replace him with Adolph Hitler unless he can get Hitler to commit a good deed. As with nearly all of the Roach "streamliners" of the time, it has several double entendres which leads one to believe the censors were either asleep, didn't expect such from the "Our Gang" leader, or, more likely, it went over their heads. In addition to Hitler, speaking of the Rudolph Hess 'trip" to England as one in which..."I lost my Hess", Hitler is heard bragging about his skills as a two-handed house painter by claiming..."I could switch hands and never miss a stroke." I choose not to explain the original source( or activity described) of that line.
