Goofs

When the first conspirator is shot in an alley, a policeman identifies the dead man's gun as "7.63 Luger." Lugers are 7.65 mm; the 7.63 is a Mauser, of a different cartridge length. They don't look alike. 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.
