"It Happened Here'

Post by harry palmer » 21 May 2002 11:39

Does anyone know if “It Happened Here” is available on video/DVD. It’s a very interesting low budget film made in the 1960s based in a German occupied Britain four years after a successful Operation Sealion. Much of the footage has an effective use of shock effect; German troops marching through the streets of London, British SS units, the wholesale evacuation of large parts of Western England etc. The film also raises many ethical questions regarding resistance and, collaboration.

“SS-GB” is good as well, especially the portrayal of Germany and Russia being on such good terms that Germany arranges to hand over the body of Karl Marx (buried in London) to the USSR!
