Adolf Hitler, Benito and Suki Yaki are placed in a series of Three-Stooges routines, with the premise that the Board of Directors of Hell has put the Devil on notice they intend to replace him with Adolf Hitler unless he can get Hitler to commit a good deed. The devil has his work cut out for him, and doesn't appear likely to escape being replaced by the German leader. Written by

I caught 'The Devil With Hitler' a while ago on TCM, and, expecting to see something absolutely dreadful like 'Hitler's Children', found myself delightfully surprised. What a ridiculously irreverent little flick!] Bobby Watson mugged hysterically as Hitler, and, while many of the jokes were pretty lame or corny, or light- or, all three put together- the general atmosphere of silliness made this an awful lot of fun. There were lots of amusing little B-grade Marx Bros.-wannabe touches throughout, like Hitler continuing his interest in the painted arts: here, he has a white room, which he paints black. (I can only imagine that, later, off-screen, someone paints it white again, so he can repeat the process ad infinitum!) This ain't no high-grade satire, this certainly isn't a good movie. But I got a lot of laughs and giggles from the proceedings, certainly worth 44 minutes of my time.
