A strange but very interesting film

I will not add anything much to the previous comments for this feature. I just discovered it today. I had heard of it, but not more. I first thought I already saw it, but I confound with MAGIC FACE, starring Luther Adler, who plays in the Frank Tuttle's film an actor who looks like Hitler and decides to impersonate him against the Nazis will, of course. In this very film, STRANGE DEATH OF ADOLF Hitler, the main character is forced by the German to impersonate the Führer, a ringer, to protect him against a criminal attempt.

I won't tell you the climax, another user already had, unfortunately.

But it's rather a very good propaganda film for this time.
