'Ray Milland is not in this movie'
3 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Red Roses For The Fuhrer" or it's alternate title "Code Name, Red Roses" is not a bad film but previous sources listing this motion picture among Oscar-winner Ray Milland's credits are completely wrong.

Ray Milland is not in this film at all but was probably offered the role that was eventually accepted by Michael Wilding. As war movies go, this one is pretty entertaining with a fine cast including James Daly, Peter Van Eyck, Wilding, and Pier Angeli, who only got more beautiful as she matured. It also has plenty of action but no Ray Milland.

I was able to get a DVD from Canada, which obtained a Greek PAL VHS of the film in English with Greek sub-titles. Michael Wilding's voice is dubbed by someone else but Daly and Pier (actually billed under her real name of Anna Maria Pierangeli) dubbed their own voices for this Italian-German co-production.
