| Kind of a Nazi "Dead Ringer"
Conrad Veidt plays twins, one good, one evil, in "Nazi Agent," a 1942 film directed by Jules Dassin. Veidt plays Otto Becker, a bookstore owner, and his twin brother, Baron Hugo von Detner, who heads up the German consulate in the U.S. Hugo wants to use Otto's bookstore as a message drop for his agents. Otto is in the country illegally, so with Hugo hanging this over his head, he has to go along. When a fight ensues between the two, Hugo is killed. Otto takes his place in the consulate and as head of the spy ring.

Veidt is very good in both roles, that of a sweet, generous man, and the usual Veidt persona - a cold, authoritarian, but charming Nazi.

The supporting cast includes Ann Ayars, Dorothy Tree, Frank Reicher, and Martin Kosleck.

Entertaining. I did wonder about why Otto made the decision that he did at the end of the film, though.
