During the time just prior to the War and later, in full race, a sentimental story between the Spanish spy "María" (Jeanette MacDonald), takes place in charge of seducing French military for information and a French spy (Allan Jones) that works for his country, difficult relationship to maintain because of the war situation.
It is an entertaining film set in a tough match as was The Peninsular War (1807-1814). It was a military conflict Between the First French Empire and the allied powers of the Spanish Empire, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the Kingdom of Portugal for Control of the Iberian Peninsula During The Napoleonic Wars. When the war started French and Spanish Armies occupied Portugal in 1807, and escalated in 1808 When France turned on Spain, ITS ally until then. The war on the peninsula until the Sixth Coalition Lasted Defeated Napoleon in 1814, and is Regarded as one of the first wars of national liberation, significant for the emergence of large-scale guerrilla warfare.
The film has a good staging, very well made for the years in which it was filmed scenarios. The performances of the cast are good while maintaining the nuances of adventure films of the forties. And of course seen from the historical point of view, the script contains some inaccuracies, but being made out of Spain, it is understandable.
