Description by OLDIES.com:

Three seasoned gangsters fresh out of Alcatraz take on a million dollar challenge - to assassinate Adolph Hitler. Led by tough guy Steve Maschik (Ward Bond) the bounty hunters, including Maschik's bumbling bodyguard, "Dutch" Havermann (Warren Hymer) and the "brains" of the trio - Joe "The Book" Conway (Paul Fix) - join the Canadian Air Force, commandeer a bomber and parachute into Germany just a few kilometers from Hitler's headquarters in Berlin. Teaming up with the anti-Nazi underground, the ex-cons are able to get close to Der Fuhrer... and the opportunity to fulfill their mission. Hollywood patriotism on display just as WWII was heating up.

Product Description:

Rating 4.0 over-the-top propaganda-action-comedy-thingie Movie Lover: from somewhere out there -- May, 12, 2006

World War II propaganda flick that shows that even America's criminals are better than Nazis... it's kind of like The Dirty Dozen but with three guys. A trio of gangsters led by Ward Bond (who even reminds me of Lee Marvin a little) gets out of Alcatraz and take on a mission to kill Hitler for a million dollar bounty. They figure that Hitler's just another gangster and so they know how to deal with him, and so they become paratroopers and hijack a plane into Germany. They're soon captured, but they know all the tricks for breaking out of jail so they're soon free again, with the help of a woman who's working for the resistance. By they time they catch up with Hitler they're ready to kill him even without the bounty. They shave off his mustache to see if he's the real Hitler and not a double (the real one is supposed to have a scar on his lip) and Hitler's given plenty of chances to act like a big coward before his clean-shaveness causes a big surprise. At times this plays like a comedy (although some of that may be due to the preposterousness of the plotline), but then has scenes of Nazi troops gunning down children. It's pretty crazy propaganda (why hasn't anybody done one of these on Bin Laden? I'm calling for a remake! Off with 'is beard!) and it's silly in its extremity, but aside from the over-the-top concept it's a pretty standard B-action flick. Bobby Watson plays Hitler, as he did in about a dozen other movies; he really does look a whole lot like Hitler, the poor guy.
