In the 1940's Mervyn LeRoy was a great director of many fine films and you can tell by the great actors performing in this film and the mysterious plot to this story. Norma Shearer,(Countess Ruby Von Treck),"The Women",'39, had an admiring Nazi General, Conrad Veidt,(General Kurt von Kolb),"Casablanca",'42, who tried to take over her life. However, Robert Taylor,(Mark Preysing),"Johnny Tiger",'66, came to Europe to find his mother who was a retired actress and being held captive by the Nazi authorities. There is a coffin and graveyard involved in this story which makes the film quite interesting, considering it was made in 1940. If you look close you will see Bonita Granville,(Ursula, a Student),"Nancy Drew Pictures of 1930's", trying to help Mark Preysing avoid being captured by the Nazi soldiers. If you love a very young looking Robert Taylor, this is the film for YOU!
