Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Hollywood war films about America's allies and other countries under Nazi occupation. It suggests that though there is little concern with valuing a particular nationality in these films, they provided the opportunity for Americans to imagine how they would behave under occupation. Examples of these films include The Wife Takes a Flyer, Hangmen Also Die!, and None Shall Escape.
