Summary

In this wartime MGM short, the Devil makes mischief with the U.S. economy. It's 5 months since the U.S. entered World War II and Adolf Hitler telephones the Devil for his help. No problem, says the Devil, he will get Americans to buy on credit, break rationing laws, hoard as much as they can and cash in their war bonds. It includes a clip from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt asking people to buy bonds and act in the best interest of the country.
