The Devil's General
Curt Jurgens stars as a courageous Luftwaffe officer. Jurgens loves the service, even though he barely tolerates the Hitler regime. Sickened by wartime Nazi atrocities, Jurgens renounces his government, and is imprisoned and tortured as a result. Once released, the general takes pity on a downtrodden Jewish family. This isolated act of kindness is a point in his favor when Jurgens stands before Satan himself for his final judgment. The Devil's General was based on an immensely successful postwar play by German author Carl Zuckmeyer.

Richard Widmark and Paul Douglas are both wonderful as the doctor and cop, respectively, setting up the classic hate-each-other-then-earn-other's-respect dynamic. The other performances are just as winning: Barbara Bel Geddes as Widmark's wife, Jack Palance as the intimidating, animalistic murderer, and Zero Mostel as his toadying henchman (plus a host of non-professionals who Kazan directs very well). As is often the case with these movies, watching the bad guys is a lot more enjoyable than watching the good guys, and its those segments that are the most noir-ish. But the manhunt scenes are quite compelling as well, and the film as a whole really holds up. Fantastic chase scene at the end, with a number of memorable shots along the way. I can't think of anything negative that stands out, except that I wish there was a little more Palance in it.

Anyway, it's a good movie, nice cast, and I loved the finale. A great score from Bernard Hermann and some nice sets. Edward Arnold was fun as Daniel Webster.
