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.
In 2008, Til Schweiger (Sergeant Hugo Stiglitz) appeared alongside Johannes Heester (better known as the favorite actor of Adolph Hitler) in the film 1 1/2 Knights: In Search of the Ravishing Princess Herzelinde (2008).
Major Dieter Hellstrom:
I'll start, give you the idea. Am I German?
Bridget von Hammersmark, Lt. Archie Hicox: No.
Bridget von Hammersmark: Am I American?
Major Dieter Hellstrom, Lt. Archie Hicox: No.
Cpl. Wilhelm Wicki: Wait a minute, he goes to...
Bridget von Hammersmark: Obviously, he wasn't born in America.
Major Dieter Hellstrom: So, I visited America, aye?
Bridget von Hammersmark, Lt. Archie Hicox: Yes.
Major Dieter Hellstrom: Was this visit fortuitous?
Cpl. Wilhelm Wicki: Not for you.
When the German soldiers are watching the film, "Nation's Pride" in the cinema, a Wilhelm scream can be heard within the film as a sound effect. This sound effect wasn't recorded and used until the 1953 film, "The Charge at Feather River" which was released 9 years after the 'release' of "Nation's Pride", meaning it would have not existed yet.
Both the opening and closing credits change fonts numerous times, displaying typefaces seen in a variety of earlier and subsequent Tarantino films.
