Barry Kohler, a young Nazi hunter, tracks down a group of former SS officers meeting in Paraguay in the late 1970s. The Nazis, led by Dr Mengele, are planning something. Old Nazi hunter, Ezra Lieberman, is at first uninterested in Kohler's findings. But when he is told something of their plan, he is eager to find out more. Lieberman visits several homes in Europe and the U.S. in order to uncover the Nazi plot. It is at one of these houses he notices something strange, which turns out to be a horrible discovery.Written by
Franklin J. Schaffner previously directed Patton (1970) which won several Academy Awards including the Oscar for Best Picture. This was the only other movie related to World War II that Schaffner directed. See more »
When David Bennett shows Lieberman the photographs of three Nazi agents, he mistakenly identifies Schwimmer as Kleist and Kleist as Schwimmer. See more »
Old veterans Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier and James Mason team up in this well-constructed and absorbing thriller. The plot sounded so bizarre that I had to check the film out. Although there is some choppy editing and cartoonish acting, "The Boys from Brazil" makes for a good viewing.
