Storyline

In winter of 1938, Paris is crowded with refugees from the Nazis, who live in the black shadows of night, trying to evade deportation. One such is Dr. Ravic, who practices medicine illegally and stalks his old Nazi enemy Haake with murder in mind. One rainy night, Ravic meets Joan Madou, a kept woman cast adrift by her lover's sudden death. Against Ravic's better judgement, they become involved in a doomed affair; matters come to a crisis on the day war is declared. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

MPAA chief Joseph Breen made the studio tone down the excessive violence in the script. The scene in which Ravic kills Haake also included him stuffing him in the trunk, stripping him naked, burying him and burning his clothes, all eventually cut from the film. Breen also objected to the murder going unpunished, but later rationalized it as an act of war, since it was committed on the eve of the outbreak of WWII. See more »

a very fine film
29 October 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a dark, moody, WW II film that many people today cannot understand. This film is also very close to the book. The photography is as good as The Third Man, and the plot is absorbing. Charles Laughton is mis-cast as the SS (Nazi) agent but other than that the film is terrific. Louis Calhern is impressive as the Russian officer now reduced to be a doorman at a nightclub. This is a serious film made at the time of immense human suffering right after the 2nd WWar and shows the very serious attitudes of the people then. This is a film for people who value well made movies from a bygone age that had great actors and directors. The book is tougher than the movie, it was written by one of the 20th centuries great authors.
