The Plot to Kill Hitler

plottokillhitlerIn 1944, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (Brad Davis) is drawn into a conspiracy with several other high-ranking officers to try to kill Hitler in order to stop the war and negotiate surrender. This story, based on actual events, is thrilling and sensational enough to survive even a mediocre TV movie like this, which pales in comparison with Valkyrie (2008), a much more potent feature film version. Davis isnā€™t particularly noteworthy in the lead, and Mike Gwilymā€™s Hitler comes across more like a caricature. Still, a few supporting turns and the production values are decent enough.Ā 

1990-U.S. Made for TV. 94 min. Color. Directed byĀ Lawrence Schiller. Cast: Brad Davis (Claus von Stauffenberg), Madolyn Smith (Nina von Stauffenberg), Ian Richardson (Ludwig Beck), Kenneth Colley, Michael Byrne, Helmut Lohner.
