Description
Sometimes, all you have to fight with is your courage and your character. Under the brutal martial law of Nazi-occupied France, many risked their lives to help keep the world free from Nazi domination. This is the story of one such woman. A simple barmaid named Joan (Michele Morgan) sacrifices her own safety to help five fugitive British airmen escape from France. From the time the airmen make their rendezvous with a British agent in a Paris church, they become the desperate quarry of the unrelenting Nazi Gestapo. Now, Joan must devise a means of escape for the men and finds herself falling in love with the squadron leader (Paul Henreid). Taut suspense holds you to the harrowing conclusion of this wartime drama.

    Comments about this product:

    This is a WWII story. The Germans are occupying France and patrolling the streets of Paris. German agents are plain-clothed to spy on the activities of the citizens.

    Paul Henreid is a British pilot downed in France. He's trying to contact the Underground for help. Thomas Mitchell is the priest that is hiding Paul's buddy airmen.

    A German stands next to Paul having coffee in a Cafe. He spills his coffee to distract the German while making an escape. He hides in an apartment behind the Cafe. It happens to belong to the waitress, Michele Morgan.

    She is about to change her dress soaked in coffee. Paul comes out of the closet, apologizes. He gives her money to replace the dress.

    The money was stolen from a German soldier, he doesn't realize it is traceable. Michele buys a new dress. Now, the Germans are following her too.

    Paul has Michele distract the Germans into following her while he contacts a lead he has to get to the Underground folks. The underground visits Michele with information of their plans.

    I'll stop here. Did the British escape? Women can be more brave than men! I invite you to see this.

    It was done in film noir style. It's in glorious Black & White with good versus bad theme. Copyrighted in 1942, before Color was inexpensive.
