Kurt Kreuger

  1. Peter Pohlenz,The Hitler Gang,1943.   One of eight Hitler-titled US movies during WWII. This was Paramount’s offering, a “documentary-propaganda” justly shot down by New York Times  critic Bosley Crowther for being “cut very much to the pattern of some of our early and better gangster films” which  meant “that the grave responsibility of the German citizens for what they have allowed has been neatly tossed onto the shoulders of a few ruffians, Army officers and industrialists.” Like Goebbels, Goring, Hess, Himmler – and Pohlenz replacing fellow German Kreuger as Reinhard Heydrich.
