Hitler Film Receives Many Crank Letters in Milwaukee

Download PDF for this date

“Hitler’s Reign of Terror,” a film taken in Nazi Germany and compiled by Cornelius Vanderbilt Jr., has begun an indefinite run at the World Theatre here. No steps to stop the showing of the film were taken by “strike-muddled” authorities who have had their hands busy with the truck drivers’ walkout, according to Al Steffes, owner. However, he has reported that a flood of crank letters, without signatures, condemning him for showing the picture has come to his desk.
