Synopsis:
At the height of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, four German exiles in Hollywood - director Fritz Lang, playwright Bertolt Brecht (earning his only US credit), composer Hanns Eisler and actor Hans Heinrich von Twardowski - pooled their talents to create Hangmen Also Die!, a remarkable film about the Czech resistance. Twardowski plays Reinhard Heydrich, an SS Obergruppenfuhrer and the 'Reich-Protector' of Czechoslovakia, known alternately as The Hangman' and The Butcher of Prague'. When he is assassinated by a surgeon (played by Brian Donlevy), the city is locked down and the doctor must rely on the help of the resistance to evade capture.
