Trivia

When Lana Turner did not turn up on the appointed date for wardrobe fittings in London because she was honeymooning with Lex Barker, the studio contemplated replacing her with either Ava Gardner or Jennifer Jones. However, a mix-up in the dates was the problem, and Turner did do the picture. See more »

Goofs

In his opening narration, Gen. Ted Eyck (Louis Calhern) states that "This is spring, nineteen hundred and forty-three." A few moments later, however, Gen. Larraby rides up to his office and when a soldier says to him, "Lovely day, isn't it?" he replies, "Yes it is, and October too." (And a day or so later, the German radio announces it will execute Dutch hostages the next day, October 21.) See more »

Average spy melodrama handsomely photographed in Holland...
15 July 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Despite good performances from Lana Turner, Clark Gable and Victor Mature (in a colorful role as "The Scarf"), and some pretty location photography of Holland (filmed in Eastmancolor), there are script problems that render BETRAYED a contrived spy tale about the Dutch underground resistance to Nazis.

As one reviewer noted, "at times it is hard to tell who Clark Gable, Lana Turner and Victor Mature are spying for" -- and the revelation that there is a traitor among them comes as no great surprise.

Still, the story moves at a fair pace, Lana looks gorgeous even with a brunette hairdo, and the aging Clark Gable gives a quietly underplayed performance in his final role at Metro. Victor Mature comes off best in a colorful pivotal role. Wilfred Hyde-White, Louis Calhern and Roland Culver are wasted in supporting roles.

All in all, an average spy melodrama bolstered by some fine location photography.

For more about the film and Lana Turner, see my article on LANA TURNER: DANGEROUS CURVES in the Spring Issue 2002 of FILMS OF THE GOLDEN AGE magazine.
