Hangmen Also Die 1943 | 1080p BluRay | Action / Drama / Film-Noir / Thriller / War

Hangmen Also Die is the story of Heydrich’s assassination in fictionalized form. It was Bertolt Brecht’s only comparatively successful Hollywood project; the money he received allowed him to write “The Visions of Simone Marchand”, “Schwyk in the Second World War” and his adaptation of Webster’s “The Duchess of Malfi”.

Hangmen Also Die

Hangmen Also Die! is a 1943 noir war film directed by the Austrian director Fritz Lang and written by John Wexley from a story by Bertolt Brecht (credited as Bert Brecht) and Lang. The film stars Hans Heinrich von Twardowski, Brian Donlevy, Walter Brennan, Alexander Granach and Anna Lee, and features Gene Lockhart and Dennis O’Keefe. Hanns Eisler composed the score, being nominated for an Academy Award, and the cinematographer was James Wong Howe.

The film is loosely based on the 1942 assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi Reich Protector of German-occupied Prague, number-two man in the SS, and a chief mastermind of the Holocaust, who was known as “The Hangman of Prague.” The real Heydrich was assassinated by Czech resistance fighters parachuted from a British plane in Operation Anthropoid, but in the film, which was made during World War II before the full story had become public knowledge, Heydrich’s killer is depicted as a member of the Czech resistance with ties to the Communist Party.

Cast :

Brian Donlevy : Dr. Franticek Svoboda
Walter Brennan : Prof. Stephen Novotny
Anna Lee : Mascha Novotny
Gene Lockhart : Emil Czaka (brewer)

  1. Thank you for sharing. But my blood boiled till the end.. I can't stand nazi's.
    May we never see this happen ever again, but I'm afraid its shaping up to repeat.
    ???????? ???????? ???????? ???????? ???????? ???????? ???????? ❤

  2. Please get rid of the big pink squares about other films that cover the last frames of the movie. They destroy the ending of the movie. Because of them, I will not be watching anymore films on your channel if they appear again.

  3. But Heydrich was killed by a bomb the guy who had the Bren gun it did not go off the other guy threw a bomb in his car and it blew up in his back he lived and was driven to hospital and lived for a week his kidneys were not working and he died of that poison in his blood, Himmler was quite happy he was gone!

  4. The true story is much different. The 2 czech oss agents were shot and killed shortly after Heidrichs car was bombed. Heidrich died from infection in his spleen from a piece of the horsehair upholstery in the blown up back seat

  5. The story line is fairly original, and the photography at times is impressive. But some of the acting is way over the top, which keeps it from moving beyond the level of just another shrill melodrama. And the German characters are ridiculously cliched. Hello, Central Casting? Send over a dozen evil Gestapo agents. Talent not required.

  6. I don't think anyone can truly grasp the brutality of what German Nazis did. We know what they did. We know they killed millions. But the atrocities and wanton murders can never be repaid. They are lucky they weren't nuked like Hiroshima.

  7. Soon this movie will have meaning to those ppl. Of Ukraine who bravely fight the tyrant Putin. Those Ukrainian citizens living in Mariupol are fighting to the death to keep this from happening. Glory to ???????? Ukraine !

  8. Great movie made well before anyone (outside the British/Czech intelligence) knew how it was done. They were obviously wrong but the movie works as a great propaganda film against Nazism. Gene Lockheart ( the Judge on Miracle on 34th Street) does a great job as a collaborator!

  9. This is an excellent movie made in 1943 about the assassination of the butcher of Prague, Reinhard Heydrich and how the Nazis flipped out. The Nazis are disgusting animals who are easy to hate. This movie is superbly done and is incredibly intense. It was very hard for the Czechs to survive and fight these swines.

  10. In 2021, this movie really grips my attention to it and watching it at midnight. I love this kind of classics. Thank you for sharing this gem ????
