1940, Linda Voss is a woman of Irish, Jewish-German parentage who loves the movies, especially films about war and spies. She gets a job at a New York law firm, after it's revealed she can speak German, fluently. As secretary and translator to Ed Leland, she begins to suspect that her boss is involved in espionage work. The two become lovers, and when America officially joins the Allies in fighting Hitler, Linda volunteers to go undercover behind enemy lines. Written by
He needed to trust her with his secret. She had to trust him with her life.
Did You Know?
In the living-room, when Linda and her father read a letter from her imperiled aunts and cousin in Berlin, the music on the phonograph is Robert Schumann's "Kinderszenen" (Scenes of Childhood), Opus 15. See more
When Leland finds Linda in the laundry basket, Ed and "Sunflower" clean her up, get her dressed, and give her a pill for the pain. Throughout this scene, she is fairly incoherent, and not wearing any gloves. In the train, Leland notices the bump in her glove and finds the microfilm hidden there. In the closing dialogue from the interview scene, Linda takes credit for hiding the microfilm in her glove based on another one of her pearls of wisdom from previous Hollywood war/espionage movies. That seems highly unlikely given her state in the earlier scene. See more
Do you know what you're getting yourself into, Linda?
Yeah, the war.
