Storyline

Documentary-style prologue follows training of O.S.S. agents for WWII work behind enemy lines. One of the group is a German "mole;" leaders Gibson and Sharkey are aware of this and scheme to feed him false info about the invasion of Europe, while the real agents go to France to find a secret V-2 rocket depot. But the German spy outsmarts them and rejoins his people knowing too much; Bob Sharkey takes the risk of going in after him. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

13 Rue Madeleine is a wonderful hero showcase for James Cagney
29 March 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The title of this movie is the address of the Nazi headquarters in France where the James Cagney character tries to endure torture in order to keep secret his agents' plans to destroy said headquarters. Compellingly directed by Henry Hathaway in a semi-documentary approach that simulates a March-of-Time-like feel, this film takes us from training to assignment the trials of the OSS agents in preparing to infiltrate Nazi-occupied France during World War II. Excellent portrayal by Richard Conte as the German-posing-as-American student who befriends fellow classmate Frank Latimore over backgammon. Also compelling is Annabella as a French-immigrant who waits for news about her husband. Also worth mentioning are Walter Abel as Cagney's concerned superior and Sam Jaffe as the French mayor who learns to trust Cagney. May be slow for some modern watchers but worth seeing to the climatic end! As in another Hathaway movie called Kiss of Death later that year, look for Karl Malden in cameo. He plays a jump master in this one.
