Facts about

This film represents one of a small handful of American films which featured the word Hitler or Hitler's, and both referencing Adolf Hitler, in their titles and were ones made around the time of the Second World War. These World War II movies include Hitler's Children; Hitler's Madman aka Hitler's Hangman; Hitler--Dead or Alive; The Hitler Gang aka Hitler & co.; the documentary short, Hitler Lives; The Strange Death of Adolf Hitler; Hitler's Women aka Women in Bondage; the comic short, The Devil with Hitler and Hitler - Beast of Berlin.
For the 1947 re-release, the name of Alan Ladd who was a virtually unknown supporting player at the time of the film's 1939 production, was moved to top billing and prominently displayed on all the advertising; most contemporary DVD copies were struck from re-release prints, and so his revisionist top billing credit remains.
Producer Ben Judell bet the farm on this film. His desire for sensationalism to generate profits blew up in his face. He spent 1939 organizing Producer's Distributing Corporation (what would be a precursor to a Judell-less PRC) around this film, it's first release, but thanks to various pro-German censorship boards, especially in big markets, he was unable to get it inside critically important theaters. Unable to generate cash flow from this film, his dream to create a new independent studio died and creditors forced him out.
