Confessions of a Nazi Spy

In 1939, two years before Pearl Harbor, Warner Brothers released Confessions of a Nazi Spy, which marked its first attempt to deal with the growing menace posed by Hitler. Previously, the studios had been reluctant to anger the lucrative German export market. Edward G. Robinson plays the an FBI agent tasked with breaking up a secret ring of German-American fascists. The film was received well in the U.S. but banned in Germany and Japan.
