Although made on a small budget, the film is very well acted, directed and edited and proves to be both suspenseful and a serious romance.
Douglass Montgomery, dashing with his Errol Flynn moustache, plays Hugh McGrath, a Canadian in a German POW camp, who has made many escape attempts, only to be captured every time. This time the guard he bribes double crosses him and in the escape shuffle, the guard is killed. McGrath must now hide out as both an escaped prisoner and a murderer.
He hides with German prostitute, Anna (Constance Bennett) and is being tracked by Detective Gretz (Oskar Homolka), who also loves Anna. Thus an espionage romance becomes a triangle.
All three leads are excellent - it's one of Montgomery's best performances. Bennett is both fragile and tough as Anna and Homolka is his usual brilliant self. I swear that's Ralph Richardson as one of Homolka's stooges, in a practically dialogue-less role - uncredited.
Very worth seeking out.
