WW II Docudrama Film “A Voice from Mauthausen” getting rave reviews

A powerful World War II film


Sperduti Bros. Films reports their short award-winning docudrama, A Voice From Mauthausen, continues to accrue accolades and distribution outlets.

The independent film is based on the powerful true story of WWII U.S. Navy frogman Lt. Cmdr. Jack Hedrick Taylor, Navy Cross, Purple Heart, and Prisoner of War medals recipient, as told through his War Crimes Trials testimony.

An orthodontist by profession, Navy Reservist Taylor rejected a medical assignment and volunteered for combat duty. Taylor completed over a dozen missions behind Nazi lines in Europe before ultimate capture and incarceration at the Nazis’ infamous Mauthausen concentration camp. Taylor is acknowledged within the Navy’s special warfare community to be the first frogman to conduct missions on the sea, in the air, and on land.

Today’s U.S. Navy SEALs evolved from Taylor and his fellow frogmen of the O.S.S. Maritime Unit. The Sperduti Brothers’ feature-length script Frogman, also based on Taylor’s life, has garnered special interest among Hollywood producers.

A Voice From Mauthausen is distributed through Allied Vaughn Co.

In DVD and digital download formats, and can be found on most major Internet websites. VetStreamTV is currently processing the movie for its film platform. A Voice From Mauthausen has screened in seven countries on three continents.
