This fascinating film, from the archives of the Central Intelligence Agency,. was produced during World War 2 to train American "AIOs" (Air Intelligence Officers) in techniques for interrogating captured enemy airmen, gathering vital intelligence. You'll get a look inside an AIO training school, where candidates learn a variety of interrogation methods, the importance of thoroughly familiarizing yourself with existing intelligence about enemy units and weapons, and observe mock interrogations that are critiqued by the class. Then you'll see a series of re-creations of field interrogations that are conducted by real AIO servicemen in the native languages of captured pilots with English subtitles. See how each interrogator's approach is modified for the typical national characteristics of captured German, Italian and Japanese pilots and aircrew, while still being aware of each individual's personality and how it could be exploited. (An AIO had to think fast on his feet.) You'll also see how agents were planted in prison camps to glean information, "parties" were held to loosen tongues and more.
