Movie Info

The German The Affair Blum is based on a true 1926 incident that helped sow the seeds of anti-Semitism that Hitler so effectively exploited. A poverty-stricken wretch kills a man during a robbery. But the German authorities aren't interested in "small potatoes"; they've already made up their minds that a prominent Jewish industrialist, Dr. Jacob Blum (Claus Becker), is the guilty party. Once they determine the true identity of the killer, the police use the culprit to build up a circumstantial-evidence case against the industrialist. Only the intervention of an honest cop saves the innocent Blum from falling victim to blind prejudice.
