Quotes

Major Otto Kauders: Can we have our drink now?
Lisa Dorn: Of course, Major. Will you get a table downstairs and we will join you in a few minutes.
Major Otto Kauders: Alright. Oh, by the way, there is one further request. I'm going back in a very few hours and I need a mascot.
Lisa Dorn: A mascot?
Major Otto Kauders: Yes, and it has to be something personal or it doesn't work. Fräulein, if you could give me one of your stockings?
Lisa Dorn: What a charming idea. Go now, get that table and I'll bring the mascot with me.
Major Otto Kauders: I'll be waiting in the cocktail lounge.

An overlooked little gem, set and filmed in the last days of WWII.
3 September 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I just saw this for the first time on TCM and found it fascinating. It's one of the few movies made during WWII that distinguishes between ordinary German citizens and Nazis. There's very little overt wartime propaganda, until the end (which has a small surprise twist). Although made with a so-called "B" cast, it's every bit as engaging as Grand Hotel. A shame it's not on VHS or DVD, but surely TCM will be showing it again.
