Counterfeit Traitor yes, but NOT a counterfeit movie.
One of the great WWII intrigue films perhaps because it was done 20 years emotionally removed from that incredible war, where good and evil were so clearly delineated. The story again proves the Bard right in that truth is stranger than fiction.
By 1962, when this film was released, William Holden's career had already gone into decline but certainly not his talent. A marvelous film shot in the actual European cities where the true story took place, a film that engenders repeated watching. This is a good one for a rainy Saturday night with or without a partner with whom to watch it.
