Do not permit yourself to get fat. Fat has ruined more marriages than actresses and pretty widows.

Its propaganda roots are obvious now but still a well acted war drama about the struggle of Norway against the Nazi machine.
Paul Muni is strong in the lead. Famed for parts where he was under heavy makeup like Emile Zola and Louis Pasteur those performances viewed today are heavy and hammy whereas in plain clothes such as here and I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang he is far more naturalistic.
A cast of fine character actors all add texture to the film. Lillian Gish's part is small and mostly without dialogue but of course she could convey more with a look than most actresses with a telephone book worth of words.
