A Real Gem of a Film, 21 September 2007
Author: whpratt1 from United States

This is a Gene Kelly film which I had never viewed and only associated Kelly as a song and dance actor in many musicals. Kelly plays the role as Capt. Jeff Eliot who visits the Lehrt family in Germany who protected him and his plane during WW II. However, he finds out that the family was killed and the only member in the family remaining was Wilhelmina Lehrt,(Pier Angeli). Jeff Eliot finds Willie working in a nightclub and they seem to fall in love with each other, until Jeff finds out some very dark secrets Wilhelmina had been keeping from him and they have a fight between the two of them. Claus Clausen,(Heisemann) plays the role of a Nazi Commander during the Neo-Nazism Post WW II and has complete control over an underground movement that wants to continue the Hitler movement in Germany. There are really outstanding photography inside Adolph Hitler's Berchtesgard Eagles Nest, which is all bombed out and you see Heisemann standing in front of the large window in Berchtesgard. There is plenty of suspense and good supporting actors like Richard Egan, (Lt. Parker) and even some romance. Enjoy
