Hangmen Also Die! (Fritz Lang, USA, 1943)

After threatening to end a factory slowdown by murdering hundreds of Czech workers, a Nazi tyrant is shot.

The desperate killer, a member of a Czech resistance group, narrowly escapes capture. As he tries to elude the Gestapo he struggles with his impulse to give himself up as Nazi hostages are executed.

“From a directorial standpoint this is a triumph for Fritz Lang, who succeeds with singular success in capturing the spirit of the Czech people in the face of the Nazi reign of terror.”

“Superb performances throughout, while James Wong Howe's photography perfectly captures the spirit of the occupied city, where hiding places are few and far from safe.”
