Stark PBS documentary profiling German singer/actor/director Kurt Gerron who gained fame during the 1920s and 1930s in "The Blue Angel," but, as a Jew, was not allowed to work with the Nazis in power and oddly declined a chance to escape. After being captured while touring with gypsies and sent to a camp, the Nazis forced him to create a pro-Nazi film, "The Fuhrer Gives a City to the Jews." His 23-minute work is curiously omitted.
