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
Horst Drescher is seen in 3 different uniforms in the film. During the American Intelligence meeting slide show, he is first show in a Wehrmacht uniform in one photo, then in a party uniform, and when Linda Voss goes to work at his house as a cook, he is wearing and Organization Todt uniform (Third Reich civil and military engineering group). It is highly unlikely he would have switched over to a Civil group well holding rank in the Wehrmacht. Unless as its head and appointed by Hitler. That position was held by Albert Speer. See more »
To my father I spoke German. But he warned me to keep this language a secret, because outside of our neighborhood in Queens New York, if people heard me speak German they would either think that I was a Nazi sympathizer, or they would know I was a Jew.

This will be a short review. I have seen a lot of pro and con on this movie, but almost all of the con's talk of the unbelievable plot. I will give you that the plot has some problems, and if this was a serious spy movie, then I'd be there with you, but that is not what this film is. This film is a total romance with some action thrown in. If you watch it and see how two people will risk all they have for each other because they are in love then you will enjoy this film. Sure there are holes in the plot...but not in the romance. Melanie is very likable in this movie and I think there is great chemistry! If you don't scrutinize the plot so much you may even find yourself routing for them as they cross the Swiss border.
