Storyline

The five man crew of an American bomber shot down over Italy arrive at a German interrogation station named Dulag Luft. Although reminded to provide only their name, rank and serial number, the new POWs quickly fall prey to the cunning tricks and non-violent interrogation techniques of their Nazi captors and beginning providing seemingly harmless information, which is quickly and cleverly pieced together to become valuable military intelligence. The Germans are excellent at identifying the weakness of each prisoner and selecting the interrogation techniques most suitable for that particular prisoner, like buddying up to the friendly, further scaring those already scared, and prodding the braggarts into boasting about American capabilities and intended actions.

Good training film
27 May 2003 | by (Tulsa) – See all my reviews

This film was originally produced and released as a training film for the Army Air Force during WWII. It covers the various (supposed) tactics that the Nazis would use to gather information from American (and other Allied Forces members) pilots and soldiers who are captured. Rather than being a dull, *by the numbers* lesson, however, the filmmakers present a solidly told little story in which the air crew of the mythical B-99 gradually...and presumably unintentionally...give up information that foils the success of a near-future air raid. If you see this, do tolerate a little preaching that occurs at the very end of the film (by an uncredited Lloyd Nolan) since this film WAS intended to teach a lesson; the ending is perfectly suitable for this kind of film. Certainly not on a par with Citizen Kane, but a solid enough piece of film making that deserves to be seen by a wider audience. 7* out of ten.
