This fascinating wartime film takes a thoroughly indoctrinated Hitler Youth member and drops him into Main Street America, where he recruits followers and preaches hate. Homeier, the son of a prominent anti-Nazi who dies in a concentration camp, is brought to the US by his only living

relative, uncle March, a professor in a small college town. Immediately, Homeier goes about trying to break up March's impending marriage to the part-Jewish Field. He also befriends a Chinese boy at school, thinking him to be a Japanese ally, and fosters unrest among the students. March tries

reason and tolerance, but they are lost on Homeier, who does his best to sneak a peek at the secret plans March is working on for the war effort. After attacking Carroll, March's daughter, Homeier goes into hiding, and the whole neighborhood, tired of his monkeyshines, searches for him. Caught, he

repents and seems headed for a new life as an upstanding American boy. Homeier repeats his role from the successful Broadway play on which this film is based, and although his performance is a bit broad for the screen, he still conveys the poisonous nature of his frightening character. The other

performances are good, but March is ridiculously low-key for most of the film, seemingly blind to Homeier's activities. Homeier would later shorten his first name to Skip and have a long if undistinguished career in Hollywood, but he would never make as big an impression as he does in his film

debut here.
