As Americans were waking up for their Sunday morning here in the United States, the North Koreans were watching a movie about Nazis on their state television network.

A livestream of Korean Central Television (KCTV) broadcasted an old Western-produced Nazi World War Two film until approximately 4:45 PM in Pyongyang.

The colorized film appeared to have been made in the 1940’s or early 1950’s. One of the commenters on the barely-noticed KCTV livestream commented that the film appeared to be British in origin.

The movie, dubbed into Korean, depicted behind-the-scenes conversations and relationships involving Nazi officers and bureaucrats, rather than combat scenes.

The bizarre movie choice could be a signal to foreign powers like the United States.

The movie concluded and was followed by a long stream of video footage of flowers, followed in turn by a North Korean state news broadcast.
