Here's IMDB page for it - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038991/?ref_=nv_sr_2 and here's their synopsis -
Wilson of the War Crimes Commission is seeking Franz Kindler, mastermind of the Holocaust, who has effectively erased his identity. Wilson releases Kindler's former comrade Meinike and follows him to Harper, Connecticut, where he is killed before he can identify Kindler. Now Wilson's only clue is Kindler's fascination with antique clocks; but, though Kindler seems secure in his new identity, he feels his past closing in.
I was interested in this little picture because of it being made so soon after the war, so soon in fact that the Nuremberg trials were still yet to finish. As such the film doesn't really know what it is trying to say.
I bought the dvd last week and sat down yesterday to watch it with no real expectation
Frankly the film is very disappointing with the usual over use of loud and dramatic music used to set the scene. It's very much of its time and not much good. You could say it's a holocaust film but actually there are few references to mass murder of jews, more of that in a moment, and if you took the character's back story out of it and replaced it with him being from the mafia, bank robber etc it would make no difference.
Let's be honest the holocaust story was still being refined and developed in 1946. The film never uses the word 'holocaust, doesn't talk much of jews except in a passing reference to Einstein being one, does not mention 6 million dead or gas chambers.
It does, very briefly, talk of jews being given a shower in the camps to 'open the pores' to make them receptive to the gas being delivered in those showers...
Orson Welles' character is perhaps meant to be a Himmler type senior Nazi mastermind of the holocaust but there is so little set-up and background info on the claimed genocide that it fails to instill any dread and terror in the viewer. They only use one short clip of film from the camps, probably Belsen, with a few bodies piled up.
Worth the £3 I paid for it but I'll paraphrase Monty Python, this is not a film for watching, this a is a film for laying down and avoiding.
