Goofs

The two cops in uniform that escort the police detective in the restaurant after the opening murder, are wearing black top hats similar to those worn by English bobbies then, which were never part of the Portuguese police force. Some twenty years later, Portuguese traffic cops would use those top hats, but in white, when directing traffic in busy crossroads. See more »

World War II Espionage Melodrama
23 March 2002 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Hedy Lamarr is never more beautiful and it is always a pleasure to see Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre together. The story line is fairly good for the era but the on-screen results disappoint. The movie is justifiably compared with the much much better Casablanca. Paul Henreid is escaping from the Nazis in neutral Lisbon. Hedy, Sydney, and Peter all offer help but there are complications. Conspirators abound -- who is to be trusted? All is revealed an a too predictable ending. See this film as an example of movie making during the war or to round out your viewing of its cast. On the other hand, my wife loved it! Go figure.
