Storyline

American correspondent Bill Roberts is a thorn in the side of the Nazis, as his paper always scoops the world with the truth about Germany. Gestapo Captain Carl Von Rau means to plug the leak and assigns Karen Hauen, who he attends to wed, to the case. Roberts is obtaining his information for his stories and broadcasts from an elderly stamp collector who, defiantly opposed to the Nazis, sells the "proper" stamps to Roberts, giving him the information. Attracted to Karen, Roberts invites her to his apartment where she learns his secret. The old philatelist is sent to a concentration camp, and then Karen learns that he is her father. She appeals to Roberts for help and he, in loyalty to the old man and now in love with Karen, agrees to help. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Too accurate for Nazi taste
5 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

What Clark Gable was doing the Soviets in Comrade X Dana Andrews is doing to the Nazis in Berlin Correspondent. Of course Comrade X was a far better film.

This quickie from 20th Century Fox takes place starting in the summer of 1941 when the Nazis broke their pact with the Soviet Union and invaded. Dana Andrews is broadcasting to America with strict supervision, but still manages to get news in print to his home paper in New York that is too accurate for Nazi taste. This has the Gestapo most concerned and Martin Kosleck sends in his own girlfriend Virginia Gilmore to find out.

What she does find out hits home because her father Erwin Kalser is one of the helpers. She does a 180 degree spin and falls for Andrews and the rest is for you to watch.

This is one of those films from the WW2 years which makes the Nazis out to be ludicrously stupid. They weren't all Wilhelm Klink's or they would not have done what they did. You have to marvel at what our concept of a concentration camp was before they were liberated and how easily Andrews escapes.

Sig Ruman and Kurt Katch are also stupid Nazis in this film and Mona Maris is a jealous Nazi girl who has her own war with Gilmore to fight.

Berlin Correspondent is a mediocre remnant of World War II days and hardly likely to be in the Dana Andrews top 10.
