A German pastor stands up against the tactics and teachings of the Nazis and finds himself in a concentration camp. He is beaten and tortured but escapes to give one last sermon to his parish before being shot down. The story is inspired by the life of a German minister. When the film

arrived in the US, the critics saw the film as pure propaganda since the US was still uninvolved in the war in Europe, but PASTOR HALL is far less heavy-handed than most wartime films Hollywood cranked out after Pearl Harbor. In the American version, there is a prologue with Eleanor Roosevelt

speaking against Hitler and his Nazi rule. Her son James Roosevelt presented the film in the US through United Artists.
