They Came to Blow Up America
In this provocative WW II drama, an American agent sneaks into a Nazi spy ring to learn the identities of certain double-agents. The hero works for the FBI, but was born in Germany and speaks the language like a native. First he assumes a dead spy's identity and in that guise, contacts the Nazi superiors. He is then placed aboard a U-boat and sent to the US. Things go well until his cover is blown. Fortunately, he manages to escape. He then is forced to appear in a lengthy court case to help convict the treacherous spies.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Alarming images aside, the movie's actual message is one of reassurance: Like Spike Jones' comedic patriotic wartime hit, it heils right in Der Fuehrer's face."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
