None Shall Escape

None Shall Escape is a 1944 war film. Even though it was made during World War II, the setting is a post- war Nuremberg-style war crimes trial. Production spanned from August – October 1943, more than eighteen months before the war in Europe ended. Wilhelm Grimm (Alexander Knox,) is a Nazi officer who is on trial for crimes against humanity. The story unfolds through the eyes of several witnesses, including a Catholic priest, Father Warecki (Henry Travers – It’s a Wonderful Life,) and Marja (Marsha Hunt,) a woman whom he was once engaged to. Writers Neumann and Than were European émigrés, as was Hungarian-born director, Andre de Toth. This 72 year-old film was the only American anti-Nazi picture made during the war years to address the issue of war crimes and the atrocities against the the Jews and the Holocaust.
