Quotes

Vincent Van Der Lyn: Can I have butter, as much butter as I want?
Vincent's Waiter: Certainly sir. What else
Vincent Van Der Lyn: Don't rush me please. I want white bread, lots of butter. Steak, that thick, medium rare. Sauce moyeunaise. Lyonnaise potatoes, green salad. Do you have any Holland cheese?
Vincent's Waiter: Yes senor. Edam and Gouda. Germans sell us lots of it
Vincent Van Der Lyn: Then I won't have it. And for dessert, ah, Crepe Suzette made with good Dutch Curaçao. And coffee, real coffee.
Vincent's Waiter: Will that be all senor?
Vincent Van Der Lyn: I have been planning this dinner for three years.

World War II Espionage Melodrama
23 March 2002 | by Jim TrittenSee all my reviews

Hedy Lamarr is never more beautiful and it is always a pleasure to see Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre together. The story line is fairly good for the era but the on-screen results disappoint. The movie is justifiably compared with the much much better Casablanca. Paul Henreid is escaping from the Nazis in neutral Lisbon. Hedy, Sydney, and Peter all offer help but there are complications. Conspirators abound -- who is to be trusted? All is revealed an a too predictable ending. See this film as an example of movie making during the war or to round out your viewing of its cast. On the other hand, my wife loved it! Go figure.
