Cinco fueron escogidos (English: Five Were Chosen) is a 1943 Mexican war film directed by Herbert Kline.[1][2][3] It was based on a story by Budd Schulberg,[1][4] and written by Rafael M. Muñoz and Xavier Villaurrutia.


The film is set in Yugoslavia occupied by the Wehrmacht. In a small town, a Nazi official is killed, whereupon the occupiers carry out retaliatory measures. Five of the residents of the village are sentenced to death. They represent the different groups of the city: One of them is an aristocrat, one is the mayor, one is one of the city's policemen, one a barber and one an employee. In addition to these five, a homeless man is also to be executed. Their families and neighbors try to obtain the annulment of death sentences.



There are reports that Cinco fueron escogidos was simultaneously shot alongside an English-language version. In this version appeared, among others, Art Smith, Victor Kilian, Howard Da Silva, Ricardo Montalbán (who also appeared in the original Spanish-language version) and Leonid Kinskey.[4][5] However, there is no information as to whether this version has ever been released.[5] Cinco fueron escogidos was produced by Alpha Films. It had its premiere in Mexico on 8 July 1943.
