The Master Race

Eddie Golden originally selected the title as a likely one for a picture, and then searched for a yarn [by director Herbert J. Biberman] to pin it to in order to dramatically show the arrogance and synthetic character of the barbaric Nazis. He selected a period when the German armies were fleeing in disorder, and the final unconditional surrender of the Nazi minions.

Picture opens with clips of the D-Day invasion of June 6 for brief footage, and then swings to headquarters of George Coulouris, member of the German general staff, where he tells assemblage of German officers that the war is lost and they are to proceed according to individual instructions to points designated to create dissension among the peoples of the liberated countries to further destroy Europe so that the self-styled master race can again rise to rule the continent.
