Hangmen Also Die!

On May 27, 1942 the Nazi Reichsprotector of Bohemia/Moravia, the "Hangman" Reinhard Heydrich, died from the bullets of unidentified resistance fighters. Hangmen Also Die is the story of Heydrich&#39s assassination in fictionalized form. It was Bertolt Brecht&#39s only comparatively successful Hollywood project; the money he received allowed him to write "The Visions of Simone Marchand", "Schwyk in the Second World War" and his adaptation of Webster&#39s "The Duchess of Malfi". Hanns Eisler won an Academy Award for his musical score.
