Trivia

In the scene with Lydia and the stew pot, dry ice was used to give the impression of vapors and heat. However, a small fire was lit under it, and when filming resumed, between takes Marlene Dietrich assumed there was no real heat and suffered second-degree burns to her hand. She refused to hold up production and instead kept dipping her hand in the pot that had been refilled with ice water. See more »

Goofs

In the climax where Lydia is escaping though the wilderness from the Nazis, in some shots she is seen wearing high heels and at other times appears in bare feet. See more »

Romantic war story.
5 January 2002 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Marlene Dietrich play a Gypsy who helps British spy (Ray Milland) during World War II. They try to stop the Nazis from using poisonous gases for war use. They get romantically involved with each other while there on the mission. A nice entertaining movie to watch.
