In the early twentieth century in Vienna, a liberal-minded art dealer finds a strange young man in the streets and decides to take him into his home. The young man is sick with pneumonia and the art dealer and his wife nurse him back to health over the next few weeks. The young man says strange things and exhibits unusual behavior but the gentleman who took him in sees nothing but good in him. His wife, however, sees something totally different. This is a program that will keep you in suspense to the very end.

A couple take in an out-of-luck artist to exercise their religious obligations of charity. He, an art dealer, believes the young man, though eccentric, is destined for great things. She is less certain and, in fact has visions that cause her to fear for her life. Who is this young man? Almost a 10!

SPOILER ALERT: Addy the mad Viennese artist with delusions of grandeur is Adolf Hitler.


Figured out the twist early on, but still enjoyable.


An okay listen with an ending I didn't expect. However, some people take charity MUCH too far - I would've kicked him out much sooner.
