Resisting Enemy Interrogation : Crackling with razor-sharp dialogue and noirish atmosphere, this World War II training film shows what happens when American airmen, their plane shot down over Germany, are handed over to an ace Nazi interrogation unit.
Drawn into the subtle psychological snares of their captors, the Americans are tricked into spilling vital military secrets, and several of their comrades are killed in a subsequent bombing run as a result.
A collaboration between Hollywood and the Army Air Corps, the film drives home its didactic message ( don't talk ) with suspense, intrigue and incisive characterization.
Among the many (uncredited) actors featured is a young Arthur Kennedy.
Nominated for the Best Documentary Academy Award in 1944.
