This propaganda piece starts in 1933. Prof. Nichols' American school in Berlin is next door to a school for the Hitler Youth. Karl, from the latter, is attracted to German-American Anna, but events lead to their separation. Six years later, near the outbreak of war in Europe, Anna is removed from Nichols' school on presumption of German citizenship. Nichols becomes obsessed with finding her, as Anna undergoes a rather lurid odyssey through the Nazi nightmare. Written by

Karl Bruner is wearing the four pips and strip on his uniform collar of an SS Obersturmbanfuhrer, or Lieutenant Colonel, when Colonel Henkel said he would be promoted to Captain (or Hauptsturmfuhrer) and should be wearing a collar tab with three pips (diagonally) and two stripes. Colonel Henkel's insignia is also incorrect. He is wearing the three oak leaves of a Brigadefuhrer (Brigadier General) when he should have only one leaf of a Standartanfuhrer (Colonel). See more »
During opening credits, the camera zooms in on a German book burning, and the book on top of the pile is "Education for Death" by Gregor Ziemer. That was another book by the same author of the novel on which this film is based. See more »
A Nazi officer (Tim Holt) falls in love with a freedom-fighting American girl (Bonita Granville) in WWII Germany. Very dated (of course) but still worth seeing. The film pulls no punches is showing how horrible life in Germany was during the war. I especially like them showing German citizens as being against Hitler and unhappy also. It is naive (concentration camps are mentioned once and very casually) but, at the time this was made, that's all we knew about Germany. A big hit in its day--it's easy to see why.
Holt and Granville are good in the leads--especially Holt who has a powerful speech at the end. Also the film moves quickly and is never dull. A very good look at Germany during WWII. Well worth catching.
