NONE SHALL ESCAPE (1944)
line

35mm screening +
Q&A with Brandeis Professors Thomas Doherty & Daniel Breen

Rare screening of the only Hollywood film made during World War II to depict the events later known as the Holocaust.

Released in January 1944, the film projects forward to a postwar reckoning in which a United Nations Tribunal conducts a trial for a Nazi war criminal (Alexander Knox, in his screen debut), who is charged with the round up, deportation, and murder of a group of Polish Jews. His twisted path is traced in flashback from 1919 onward. Directed by Hungarian émigré Andre de Toth, shot by ace cinematographer Lee Garmes, and scripted by future member of the Blacklisted Hollywood Ten, Lester Cole. Also starring Marsha Hunt, Henry Travers, and Richard Crane. Columbia Pictures. 85 min. B&W.
