Clip from enemy of women 1944
Enemy of Women is a 1944 American propaganda film directed by Alfred Zeisler. The lead role is Joseph Goebbels, played by Paul Andor.
Joseph Goebbels, a down-on-his-luck playwright, boards with Col. Eberhardt Brandt. While there, Goebbels falls in love with Brandt's daughter, Maria, an aspiring actress who does not return his affections. When Goebbels tries to force himself on Maria, Col. Brandt kicks him out of the house, and Goebbels joins the Nazis. Later, as propaganda minister, Goebbels manipulates Maria's career and attempts to force a relationship with her. Maria again rejects him, and he uses his power to blacklist her.

Enemy of Women was originally released November 10, 1944.
Bosley Crowther of The New York Times called it lurid and "pitifully unprofessional in virtually every way". John Sinnot of DVD Talk rated it 3/5 stars and wrote, "While Enemy of Women won't win any awards as an exemplary example of war time propaganda, it does have a certain charm to it and is very interesting to watch."
