Storyline

An anti-war documentary in which the narrative written by James Hilton and spoken by Fredric March---who did not play Himself---makes no propaganda statement one way or the other, but the cameras clearly identify the aggressors. Shot in Poland, Danzig, England and France, the events depicted, and the people/citizens themselves, are a grim reminder of the horrors of war. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
