The Boys from Brazil

Hollywood legends Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivier face off in a sinister plot to rekindle the Third Reich, in the ‘70s paranoia-fueled, sci-fi thriller THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL. Hiding in South America, the notorious Dr. Josef Mengele (a scenery-chewing portrayal by Peck) convenes a covert gathering of Nazi war criminals. Tipped off by a young investigator, skeptical Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman (Olivier, in an Oscar-nominated role) goes to Paraguay to uncover the truth for himself. There, he discovers a horrific conspiracy to clone Hitler and unleash a campaign of global terror, culminating in an unforgettable final showdown between Lieberman and the sadistic Mengele. Based on the bestseller by Rosemary’s Baby author Ira Levin, this terrifically chilling adaptation received Academy Award nominations for Best Editing and composer Jerry Goldsmith’s ominous score.
