Tom M Might have better if opening scene hadn't given away the ending. Not a bad story although Berle's humour is often out of place as a Jewish policeman who has to be bodyguard for a Nazi. Preminger, monacle and all, plays the unpleasant head Nazi , but can't seem to figure out if the movie is a drama or a comedy. Berle certainly can't. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/08/20 Full Review Audience Member I was pleasantly surprised by this. Very interesting seeing a young Milton Berle as a romantic lead. Otto Preminger makes a great nasty nazi. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Me encanta este director como actor,es estupendo.
