"Nobody does anything for Adolf unless Adolf does it for Adolf."
8 July 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Hell's Board of Directors wants to replace the Devil (Alan Mowbray) with Adolf Hitler! The Devil has to prove that Hitler isn't fit to rule Hell, so he sets out to get Hitler to commit one good deed. What a bizarre curio this is. It's all broad slapstick poking fun at Hitler, as well as Mussolini and Suki Yaki. Sensitive types will no doubt find it in poor taste. That didn't bother me. I just thought it was pretty corny. I did find the weird premise interesting. Just not that funny. If you enjoy WW2 films and shorts, and I assume you do or you probably wouldn't be watching this, then you should find this one interesting. Just don't expect to laugh a lot.
