NAZI AGENT: 

America has not yet entered World War II, when kindly stamp dealer Otto Becker (Conrad Veidt) is unexpectedly visited by his twin brother, Baron Hugo von Detner (also played by Veidt), the new German consul to the U.S. and one of the leaders of a spy ring engaged in sabotage.  The brothers have not seen each other in years, but now, von Detner wants to use Becker's shop to transmit and receive secret messages.  Becker refuses, until von Detner threatens to have him deported back to Germany as an illegal immigrant and reveals that Becker's assistant, Miss Harper (Dorothy Tree), is actually a German agent. Becker becomes a prisoner in his own store, watched constantly.  When he gives his good friend and fellow stamp enthusiast, Professor Jim Sterling (Ivan F. Simpson), a message to go to the police, Sterling is killed in a "traffic accident".   (83 mins.; very good quality)

THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS:

This film is about Operation 'Mincemeat', which involved the acquisition of a human cadaver, dressing it as a 'Major William Martin, R.M.' and putting it into the sea near Huelva, Spain.  Attached to the corpse was a brief-case containing fake letters suggesting that the Allied attack would be against Sardinia and Greece.  When the body was found, pro-German Spaniards passed the papers to the German Intelligence Service who passed them on to their High Command.  The ruse was so successful that the Germans still believed that Sardinia and Greece were the intended objectives, weeks after the landings in Sicily had begun.  (103 mins.; very good quality).

DVD-R IS APPROX. 186 MINS.   VERY GOOD QUALITY.
