French actress Annabella, (whose brother was killed by the Nazis)after leaving her native country for the broader horizons of Hollywood often devoted her career to propaganda movies :"tonight we raid Calais " (1943) " 13,Rue Madeleine " ,probably the best of the lot ,and this one.
This is a low budget movie entirely filmed in studios.It depicts a chocolate box Germany (and Holland).Montgomery is a war prisoner who escapes from a camp with a Russian (!) doctor and tries to get to England,carrying important documents ,not to fall into the Nazi's hands.
Watchable,if completely implausible (mainly the ending),this movie makes sometimes think ,in its last part,of George Seaton's "the counterfeit traitor" (1962), a feeling the presence of the Nazi brat reinforces .
