Trivia

Luther Adler would briefly impersonate Adolf Hitler again in the 1960 Twilight Zone episode, "The Man in the Bottle." Because of his age and weight he no longer bore any resemblance, but this was immaterial to the other characters given the context. See more »

Great old World War II war/drama movie.
2 February 2001 | by (Sun City, Arizona) – See all my reviews

This is a thoroughly fascinating movie about Hitler and World War II. The plot makes one wonder if possibly that's what really happened with the destruction of the Nazis and Germany in the 1940's.

It would be great if Columbia Pictures would put this movie on video tape, still better if they would make a new picture of this story.
