Louis Calhern's scenes were shot in Hollywood and added to the film after the main work on the film had been done in England. The British actors in the film had had no idea he was going to be in the film, as his character was not included in the script they had worked from. See more »

Recently viewed this film and enjoyed seeing actors like Victor Mature("I Wake Up Screaming" '41); Clark Gable("Gone With the Wind") and Lana Turner("Imitation of Life" '59) and Louis Calhern("The Asphalt Jungle '50). This film kept you on the edge of your seat, always wondering if Lana Turner was a counter-spy for the Germans or the Dutch people during WW II. There was lots of action blowing up Nazi installations, and the struggles that the Dutch people had with the German occupation of their country. All these actors showed their mature age over the years,(Age is a great GIFT) however, Clark Gable, Victor Mature and Lana Turner never lost their charms for making very warm romantic scenes without having to take their clothes off! Try to catch this film on TV, you will enjoy seeing Classic film actors really at work.
