  • Magnificent Michele!

    The great Michele Morgan made her US film debut in this well made spy story set in occupied France. No great shakes script wise but Morgan was so brilliantly presented by the great cinematographer Russell Metty. She is radiant and should have had a better American career. Michele stayed in Hollywood 5 years - married, had a son and incidentally built the house that would eventually become the Manson murder house. Michele went back to France in 1945 and the following year she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for La Symphonie Pastorale. Michele Morgan was a huge star in France for the next twenty years. She made a number of classic films including the British The Fallen Idol and two great classics with French heart throb Gerard Philippe. Michele basically retired in the early 90s. She is still very much alive and radiant at age 95. Plus it was RKO not Morgan who wanted too much money for the part of Ilsa in Casablanca. Had she gotten that role who knows what would have happened. She did make a picture with Bogart called Passage to Marseilles and even a musical with Frank Sinatra. Michele Morgan is one of the great cinema legends. Watching her again in Joan of Paris when she was barely 21 you can see a beauty at the beginning of a long career.

    This may have been effective for selling war bonds and both Bosley Crother (in his day) and the Maltin guide both rate this film highly. Still, I found way too many serious flaws to come anywhere near recommending this film, even as rainy day material. The story is filled with logical gaffs and unconvincing melodrama and, even for 1942, the screenplay has an antiseptic quality to it - never developing any real "intrigue". Any number of films do a better job pitting Nazis vs. the resistance/good guys, including the still enjoyable "Casablanca" in which Paul Henreid also appears.

    An excellent film regarding the underground during WW II. Good acting and believable script. A true reflection of what took place in Paris during the war. I would like to see TCM offer this film for purchase.

    Powerful World War II propaganda film, wonderfully acted by all, Thomas Mitchell gives a sincere performance, Paul Henreid is great, Michele Morgan is charming, Alan Ladd is great in a small role. May Robson is outstanding, great performance. Excellent and moving score. The cinematography is dark and shadowy, perfectly suited to the film.
