Trivia

The play opened on Broadway in New York City, New York, USA on 14 April 1943 and closed 17 June 1944 after 500 performances. The opening night cast included Skip Homeier as Emil and Edit Angold as Frieda, each of whom later reprised their stage roles for the film,, and Ralph Bellamy as Mike Frame, Shirley Booth as Leona Richards and Kathryn Givney as Jessie Frame. Producer Lester Cowan bought the rights to the play for $75,000 plus 25% of the gross, not to exceed $350,000. He wanted to change the title of the movie to "The Intruder," but a poll of exhibitors voted him down. See more »

Goofs

When Emil appears in his Nazi uniform, the shirt and pants are those of the Hitler Youth (which is appropriate for someone his age). However, the armband is not that of the Hitler Youth (alternating red and white bands with a swastika inside a white diamond), but that of a regular party member (solid red background with a swastika in a white circle). He would not have been eligible for full party membership - and the party armband - until his 18th birthday. See more »

Thoughtful film with strong performances
6 September 2002 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

Based on a play, the movie tells the story of an American family that adopts an orphaned German relative before the end of WWII. To their horror, the boy is a Hitler Youth who spouts anti-semitic rhetoric and boasts of Germany's ultimate victory (Tomorrow the World!). Fredric March gives his usual wonderful performance as the uncle, Agnes Moorehead is once again convincing as the maiden aunt lacking self-confidence, and Betty Field is great as the intelligent school teacher/fiancee who tries hard to understand the boy. The real treat here is Joan Carroll, who plays March's young daughter with such charm and ease that she just lights up every scene she's in.

Some dialog contributed by Ring Lardner, Jr., whose characteristic crackle is most welcome in what could be a preach-a-thon.
