George Sanders speaks in an German accent in this film and would go on to play a German in both 'Confessions of a Nazi Spy' and 'Man Hunt'. His German is quite good, and his stiff wooden acting makes him convincing as a German. Here you see him being trained as an Englishman to speak German, and you can see his evolution from an Englishman to portraying future German roles.
I've never been a fan of Peter Lorre so I haven't got much to say about his contribution to this film, although he does play a minor role and keeps low profile.
This is more like a workshop for Sanders to evolve into a German character rather than a film that stands by itself.
