Strange Holiday (1946) is an American film directed by Arch Oboler. Claude Rains stars as a man who returns from a fishing trip to find America overtaken by fascists. Introductory material included with the video release of this film states that it was underwritten by General Motors and was initially shown in private screenings for the corporation's employees. Martin Kosleck, a German actor who had played a Nazi or Nazi supporter in numerous American films during The Second World War, is featured prominently as a local authority of the new oppressive regime. The new government makes prominent and continual use of an emblem consisting of two crossed swords in much the way the Swastika had been employed by Nazi Germany. An important theme in the film is the contrast between brave individuals such as Rains who oppose the new tyranny and the many who quickly alter their thinking and behavior to stay in line with the new authority. In this the movie resembles Jack Webb's later anticommunist film Red Nightmare.
