Enemy Interrogation of Prisoners - RAF (1941, B&W, 32-minutes)

This film was developed earyl in World War 2 to show RAF aircrew what would happen if they were shot down & captured, their orders and duties, and consequences if they let slip even the most innocent sounding facts. The film is based on information supplied by escaped RAF prisoners and via British Intelligence. In this dramatization the four man crew of an RAF Hudson medium bomber fall into enemy hands and are interrogated by Luftwaffe intelligence officers. Despite knowing that they are only supposed to reveal their name rank and service number, they gradually reveal important facts about their aircraft, airfield, squadron, missions and more. A movie ticket stub carelessly left in a pocket is the small acorn from which German interrogators subtly gain access to important information. Rather than using harsh interrogation techniques, they cleverly gain what they want through apparently casual, friendly conversation and hidden microphones. I restored the video & audio.
Resisting Enemy Interrogation - USAAF (1944, B&W, 65-minutes)
Produced in 1944 to prepare US airmen if they were shot down & captured, the film reflects the more hardline interrogation techniques used by the Germans as the War progressed. The crew of a "'B-99" bomber is captured in Northern Italy and taken to a Luftwaffe interrogation center. where they're put in hot boxes, given bogus "red cross" forms to fill out, exposed to fake executions, put in cells with informers, and threatened with harsh punishment. But, as in the RAF film, despite being told that they should only give their name rank and serial number, they often give important information away in casual conversations. They think because they aren't briefed until the day of a mission, they don't know anything important, but as the head interrogator says, "they don't know what they know." Scraps of minor info they each reveal allows the Luftwaffe to paint a larger picture with deadly results.

Made in 1940's "Casablanca" like Hollywood style, the film features an all star cast including Academy Award Winner Loyd Nolan, Craig Stevens, Don Porter, James Seay and Arthur Kennedy, along with several familiar German and Austrian actors who fled Naziism.Carl Esmond gives a memorable performance as the crafty and debonaire camp commandant, "Major von Behn.".

Producers note; The image quality of "Resisting Enemy Interrogation" is only fare but still watchable. We have done our best to restore it because this is a very entertaining and informative film. Zeno
