A story about an English businessman in 1930s Germany who encounters a financier who has forged his career on greed, corruption, and opportunism, rather than the traditional British principles of decency and fair play.
Brother + sister + lover. A triangle . . . A game of consequences. And the consequences were deadly in Nazi Germany.
Did You Know?
wrote the music and Arthur Hamilton
the lyrics for "Remembering" for this movie. The song was performed by Lana Cantrell
, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture. However, it became disqualified due to Ms. Cantrell's vocal being recorded over the title strip at the end of the movie. The Academy subsequently notified East Coast Records, and requested the instrumental version be nominated in its place. East Coast Records declined in support of Ms. Cantrell. As chairman of the Music Branch's Executive Committee, it was Mr. Hamilton's responsibility to disqualify his own song. The rule was changed the following year, and the use of a song over the end titles became eligible, and common practice. See more
