The poem that Robert Donat and the others quote is from English poet William Wordsworth: "I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils" See more »
When Maruschka is consoling Paula (after Paula had killed a German officer earlier in the day), Paula says, "But Karl got his revenge today, because I had Karl's own revolver...." In an earlier scene, however, Paula was hiding a semiautomatic pistol (presumably the murder weapon) and not a revolver. See more »
"Sabotage Agent", also known as "Adventures of Tartu", is a first-rate British spy thriller. It is a quick and entertaining movie about a British spy, whose mission is to destroy the poison gas factory in Rumania.
Robert Donat is very good as the British spy who poses as a Greek and a Rumanian. His performance is spirited and his accent is amusing. His accent seems to be the same for the Greek and the Rumanian, but who cares, it is a fun movie to watch about a serious subject.
The supporting cast is perfect. Both his leading ladies are lovely and fill the bill: Valerie Hobson and Glynis Johns. Ms. Johns is still working today. Never seen Walter Rilla before or since, but he gave a good performance as the German officer, Otto, who is one of the villains, who loves Ms. Hobson's character.
