Produced in Germany in 1942, Submarinos Rumbo al Oeste (Submarines Heading Westward) had its Western Hemisphere premiere in neutral Argentina. The film almost didn't open due to violent anti-German demonstrations, but it finally earned distribution after the German government agreed to make several judicious cuts. Nothing more nor less than a Nazi propaganda effort, the film stresses the superiority and invulnerability of German sea power, but at the same time tries to assure its audience that a German submarine never, ever shells an enemy vessel unless it's absolutely necessary. Submarinos Rumbo al Oeste was staged, acted and photographed in the slick, glossy manner of a Hollywood war film, indicating that Joseph Goebbels knew that the best way to package his lies was to make them as visually attractive as possible.
