Goofs

Vincent van Der Lyn orders two glasses of champagne for him and Irene who just sat down at his table. Yet, when the order comes, the two glasses are not only round wine glasses (instead of being champagne cups or flutes) but they also contain a dark beverage, clearly not champagne. See more »

Better than expected
9 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A fine cast throughout. Lorre, Greenstreet, Lamarr, Heinreid. I had even heard of this film before I saw it on Turner Classic Movies. It is certainly not in the class of Casablanca, but it is an excellent WWII thriller. Yes, Lamarr shines in every scene she is in. In fact, she is the main reason to watch this film. She is never more beautiful than in this film, and she certainly is one of the film beauties of all time. But Heinreid is perfect for the lead. It is a bit melodramatic, but we should remember the times when this film was made. The plot is complicated, and this is not a film to "sample" -- the writing is fine, but with few memorable quotes. The black and white photography is excellent. All in all, an excellent film of its type. I recommend it.
