The Strange Death of Adolf HitlerThe Strange Death of Adolf Hitler is a 1943 American war film directed by James P. Hogan. The film follows a man who plans to murder Adolf Hitler and steal his identity.
Franz Huber (Ludwig Donath), an Austrian actor known for his impersonations of celebrities, is captured by the Gestapo and forced to undergo plastic surgery to become a stand-in for Adolf Hitler. The conspirators are planning to poison Hitler and put Huber in his place - and under their control. Huber, who is a good anti-Nazi is able to foil the Gestapo and strike a blow for democracy but his personal life is put in jeopardy because his wife (Gale Sondergaard), who is also an anti-Nazi, doesn't know that her missing husband has become a Hitler look-alike.
