If you haven't seen Inglourious Basterds, you should go rent it right now. Anyway, large portions of it involve movie-making during wartime, propaganda, inserting your own messages into someone else's propaganda film, Joespeh Goebbels, and generally busting up a gorgeous movie theater.
Which bring to America's Greatest Comics #8 (1943), wherein Spy Smasher...well, just wait and see.
In theaters across America, the latest film of Spy Smasher's exploits is met with great joy:
But with considerably less joy in the "private projection room of the propaganda ministry in Berlin":
Yes, that is Joseph Goebbels and company, despairing over the effectiveness of American propaganda films.
Ah, but the Nazis have a plan: make their own Spy Smasher films that make him (and America) look like hapless losers.
But they must go to America to film this. Why?
Their plan is almost stopped before it begins, as a curious cop stumbles upon the filming. Fortunately for the Nazis, he's not a bright cop:
Now, heat up some popcorn, and enjoy some scenes from the Nazi propaganda version of Spy Smasher:
Well, that would certainly boost German morale.
But the Nazi's have an even bigger goal in mind:
Yup, they're going to substitute the Nazi film for the new Spy Smasher epic (which is entitled Spy Smasher Axes Axis Spies). That will destroy American morale!!
Fortunately, Spy Smasher himself tumbles upon their plans, and boy, is he peeved!!
So, he leaps into action:
He replaces the Nazi actor...
...and busts up the filming of their final scenes!!
Unfortunately, the evil director and crew have already infiltrated the theater, and replaced the real film with the first few reels of their evil film:
How effective is this vile Nazi propaganda? Within the first few seconds, the youth of America are already doubting whether America can ever beat the Axis:
And the fake Spy Smasher, who escaped earlier, appears live and in person to drive home the message:
Well, that's it...America's doomed, right?
The real Spy Smasher arrives, and busts up the gang in the projection booth...
...swings down dramatically to the big screen...
And the we have one of the awesomest scenes ever: while the big screen continues to show a wussy Spy Smasher getting pummeled by Nazis, right in front of it we have, live, the actual Spy Smasher kicking the crap out of Nazis.
Holy moly that's great! I wish I could see this scene filmed someday...
But wait--there's more!! Spy Smasher has a plan for the ultimate victory:
Oh, he wouldn't, would he??
Ha ha, take that, you propaganda spewing National Socialists!!
Seriously: Quentin Tarantino, if you're reading this, I will give you 10 bucks if you film this story!!
