In 1966, three Israeli intelligence agents (Rachel, Stefan and David) were credited with tracking down and killing a brutal Nazi war criminal, nicknamed 'the surgeon of Birkenau'. Thirty years later, news reaches Rachel and Stefan about David’s fate, and it seems that the official version of events doesn’t quite match what really happened. The supposed heroes' nemesis may still be at large and they must now put things right to protect their reputations. Cutting between the two periods, the film slowly unravels the truth, exploring the three protagonists and building tension along the way.
Regarded as one of Preston Sturges's best films, Hail the Conquering Hero is a sharp satirical stab at hero worship and small-town politics.
