Trivia

This film shares many tangential connection to "Casablanca" besides simply the Nazi spy story. The film features actors Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre, who all appeared in "Casablanca". Behind the scenes, the film features music by Max Steiner and cinematography by Arthur Edeson, who both worked on "Casablanca". Like "Casablanca", this film was produced by Warner Bros. And most interestingly, this film features Hedy Lamarr, who the Ingrid Bergman role in "Casablanca" had originally been written for and who had previously appeared in "Algiers", which was a major inspiration for "Casablanca".

Goofs

When an aerial map of Lisbon is shown, it does not look at all like it, and resembles an aerial view of the China territory of Macau and Taipa Island, then under Portuguese administration. 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.
