Lots of MGM gloss, but not that believable
12 August 2001 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Joan Crawford once again is miscast in this dated wartime melodrama that takes place in Paris during Hitler's take-over. Dorn is her fiance, who she suspects is a Nazi; Wayne is the American pilot whom she hides from the Gestapo. It's very attractive and glossy, but overall not too believable. Crawford in a later interview remarked that if she is to be punished in an after-life for her sins, this is the film that would be shown over and over again to her. 2 out of 4.
