hitchcock-like WW II film
30 May 2017 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

In one of his last roles, Conrad Veidt plays both the GOOD twin and the EVIL twin, during WW II. The "bad" twin tries to talk the "good guy" into helping the dark side, but he doesn't want to. According to IMDb, this was released in March of 1942, so just a couple months after the U.S. was dragged into WW II, in December of 1941. Just like the Bette Davis films, or every other "twins" movies, one of them poses as the other. Veidt would die quite young at age 50.....heart attack. Mostly slow. Predictable. No big surprises here, but an entertaining WW II film. The suspense of watching him maneuver as he tries to avoid being found out as an imposter. This could have been a Hitchcock, but its not. This was Jules Dassin's second film as director, making him the young age of 31 when the film was made. Not bad.
