NONE SHALL ESCAPE
EAST COAST PREMIERE – NEW DIGITAL RESTORATION
4k Digital from Original Nitrate Negative
Q&A with Thomas Doherty, Brandeis University Professor & Author Hollywood & Hitler
The only Hollywood film made during World War II to depict the events later known as the Holocaust, None Shall Escape was released in January 1944 and powerfully imagines a postwar reckoning in which a United Nations Tribunal charges a Nazi war criminal with the murder of Polish Jews. Directed by Hungarian émigré Andre de Toth, shot by ace cinematographer Lee Garmes, scripted by Lester Cole, a future member of the Blacklisted Hollywood Ten, and starring Marsha Hunt and Alexander Knox, future members of the Committee for the First Amendment.
Screening of this fascinating film celebrates the publication of
Thomas Doherty’s new book Show Trial: Hollywood, HUAC & the Birth of the Blacklist.
