CGiii Comment

Possibly, the first docu-drama and a damn fine piece of American Propaganda for the FBI......and, a little embarrassing.

Swastikas flying over American streets, Hitler salutes, Nazi mass gatherings - all on American soil. Not to mention all the smoking.....in ambulances, in hospitals.....everywhere by everyone. Signs of those times...

Very loosely based on the case of Duquesne Spy Ring....good source material.....that has be annihilated beyond recognition.

The 'acting' by the non-actors (i.e. actual FBI agents) is laughably bad....but, the acting by the professionals is worse....much worse.

The writing won the Oscar - the writing is sensationalist condescension....written by idiots for idiots.......possibly, the worst and most undeserving Oscar ever awarded.

Child-like, perfunctory, simplistic codswallop.............let's play spies!
