Otto Kruger played a Prince Charming
10 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was very surprising to see Otto Kruger (Mr. Sherwood),"Hitler's Children",'43, looking handsome and finding himself falling deeply in love with a woman and still being married. Otto Kruger play many hateful roles as cruel Nazi's SS officers during the WW II years and was a crook in every picture he appeared in during the 1930's and 40's. The women and men in this picture all seem to fall in love with married couples and we even witness a young gal who is pregnant and decides to kill herself by jumping out a window. Madge Evans (Letty) decided to get married to a man who laughed at his own jokes and then got COLD FEET ! Carol sure made a good choice in running away and finding her prince charming along with a fantastic colonial mansion ! Very Classic and enjoyable film to view, it seems like it was produced in 2003!
