Deciding it is more honorable to overthrow Hitler than continue to serve him, a group of German resistance fighters attempt to assassinate their dictator. During a battle scene, planes drop bombs on soldiers, killing and wounding many of them (corpses are shown, but little blood is seen). Explosions result in death, injury and property damage. Bloodied wounds are portrayed, as are the healed stumps of a man’s arm and fingers. An artificial glass eye is shown on several occasions, including once when it is dropped into a man’s drink. Gunshots are exchanged and characters are killed by a firing squad—many of these shootings happen on screen (little blood is shown). Men commit suicide: one uses a pistol (partly depicted) and another a hand grenade (not shown). A character places a poison pellet in his mouth for the same purpose. Execution by hanging is implied by images of corpses dangling from wire attached to meat hooks. Alcohol is served at a nightclub, and one man drinks while waiting to be arrested. Many characters are shown smoking. A married couple exchange kisses. A few mild profanities, terms of Christian deity and one sexual expletive are heard.
