Confessions of a Nazi Spy
Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 at 12:10 PM
This story is a brisk connect-the-dots tale that ties German-American Bund operatives (Francis Lederer, George Sanders, and Paul Lukas among others) to Berlin. Chief among those connecting the dots: FBI Agent Edward Renard (Edwards G. Robinson). The drama wasn’t limited to the screen as production personnel received threats and violence erupted at some screenings. This movie remains a milestone of filmmaking commitment today. Released in 1939, 104 minutes.
