In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a plan to assassinate Nazi leaders by a group of Jewish U.S. soldiers coincides with a theatre owner's vengeful plans for the same.
On German advertisement materials, all swastikas were removed or covered up, as it was unclear to the distributor if the swastikas violated German law (which prohibits the exhibition of Nazi symbols except for purposes such as historical accuracy).
I don't wish to be your friend.
Fredrick Zoller: Why not?
Shosanna Dreyfus: Don't act like an infant. You know why.
Fredrick Zoller: I'm more than just a uniform.
Shosanna Dreyfus: Not to me. If you are so desperate for a French girlfriend, I suggest you try Vichy.
At the premiere, Pvt. Zoller wears his Knight's Cross around his neck but when in uniform in all other scenes, he is without it. The Knight's Cross was one of the highest orders the Third Reich bestowed upon soldiers and when in any uniform Zoller would have worn it around the neck.
The film uses the 1963-1990 Universal Pictures logo.
