      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Be warned, the spy film pales with the stiff Henreid taking up all the screen time instead of the smooth Bogie. Rated: B Jul 22, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Deke P Very xlnt WWII spy movie. Xlnt cast. HEDY LAMAR. PAUL HEINREID. etc. This noir much like the Bogie movie CASABLANCA. Rated weigh too low by the RT reviewers. Saw on the tv set 10.19.23. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/20/23 Full Review Steve D Solid story but way too slow. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie! Suspenseful with interesting plot twists. Love Paul Henreid! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Dated by todays standards - the plot, acting, special effects, all of it, except Hedy Lamarr's beauty Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Made be think of Casablanca, quite good for being so little known Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Okay knock-off of "Casablanca" with Warner Bros. doing their best to recapture that's film's magic. Returning from "Casablanca" are Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Loree, along with the same composer and cinematographer. Jean Negulesco takes over as director and does a solid job and Hedy Lamarr joins as the female lead. The Ingrid Bergman part in "Casablanca" was originally written with Lamarr in mind, but MGM wouldn't release her to appear in that film. In this film, Henreid is a Dutch freedom fighter during WWII, who is forced into neutral Lisbon to escape the Nazis. There he meets a small group of underground conspirators. The story is defiantely not as rich as "Casablanca" but the direction is solid and the cast is excellent, particularly Lamarr, who I've recently become obsessed with for being something of a forgotten actress. She was considered the most beautiful actress in Hollywood during her time, but if you look at her filmography, there's not a single film there considered a classic, which is likely why she's been largely forgotten. Overall, this film fast paced and entertaining despite a rather generic spy story and the rather lifeless lead performance by Henreid.
