World War II is over. A new war begins. Inside occupied Germany, neo-Nazi insurgents wage a campaign of terror aimed at undermining the American Military Government. Among those experiencing the waves of violence is an ex-G.I. (James Best) married to a Fräulein (Susan Cummings) he met when U.S. forces fought their way into the town of Rothbach. "I felt like a chef making a hardy soup—blending together postwar Germany, Beethoven, Wagner, unrepentant Nazis and the Nuremberg war trials,” filmmaker and combat vet Samuel Fuller (The Big Red One) recalled about Verboten!. Fuller seasons his soup with soul-searing documentary footage from his own war-era archives. It’s an assertive and thought-provoking celluloid dish.
