Why So Much About Hedy?
Henreid,the Teutonic Macready,is the outright ONLY star here.As much as he's disregarded in this film,and the film itself,too,this was good with many capable supporting roles to drown out a stinking performance a meh Hedy!She really is a drag here,and Henreid said he ws flirtatious with her,for all the good it did.Lorre and Greenstreet excellent,as Calleia and Francen.Seems to be Macready's 2nd film,he has a tiny role after his superb portrayal as a Norwegian schoolteacher in Commandos Strike At Dawn from a story by C.S.Forrester and screenplay by Irwin Shaw.
Was Francen Model For Ballin Mundson
Quite a collection of excellent character actors who gave great support to the real star,Henreid.Sorry,guys,don't know the attraction for depressing Hedy.Never cared for her acting.Lorre and Greenstreet excellent together,as usual.Only Bogie missing,and maybe Claude Rains.
Hedy given too much credit for this movie,it belongs to Henreid!He far outacts her,IMHO not too hard.Loved Macready in bit part as uber-Nazi stooge of Geray.and Victor Francen/Joseph Calleia excellent as always!
best password phrase ever
- TERRI HEIL
I wish I had written it down......Paul Henried said it a couple of times......can you direct me to a pawnshop? Reply: (with a straight face) pawnshops are where hope goes to die. I love it.

I can't believe that three so-called writers plus additional dialogue from a fourth person based on material from someone else came up with this mishmash of a script. Talk about no talent at its worst. Paul Henreid tries his best, but he's swimming upstream against the current and poor Hedy Lamarr is down to wearing more eye liner than a silent movie star. Looks like the powers at Warner Brothers thought they could just grab some stars from "Casablanca" as well as some other recognizable actors and presto! repeat that film's success. These are the real "Conspirators" who got people to watch this warmed-over "Casablanca."
Henreid far outacts Hedy.He said in his autobiography he didn't think much of her acting,and he was always accused of being a cold fish.Never saw him in a film I didn't like him in.Plenty to keep one's attention in this film.Essence of many wartime films.
Henreid The Freedom Fighter
Henreid in another heroic part.Noticed a very Aryan-looking Macready in bit part as Nazi stooge,looks like Henreid's relative!
Far from being a turkey I loved the movie. No maybe Paul is not a romantic lead but not everyone can be one. I loved the police Captain Joseph Calleia good or bad guy he plays them well.
Glamour, danger, love and Natzis
Hedy Lamarr is breathtaking in this Natzi War time drama. She is the perfect mysterious, tortured beauty who must marry the older man who saved her from a concentration camp. (Marital torture follows later as we see her languishing alone in exquisit, flowing negligues. ) Her impossibly white hats and dresses with draping, her perfectly detailed black-red mouth and fingernails, and her jewels (obtained by her suspicious husband?) make her black hair and doe eyes even bigger and sadder as she falls in love with Paul Hereid, a freedom fighter-in Lisbon. Everyone suspects everyone in the WW11 drama. Most of the cast is familiar from Casa Blanca. The dramatic music, exotic, glamourous locations, secret societies, secret rooms, secret symbols, double identintities, sexual ovurtures, glamourous fashions, and fighting for good versus evil, make this a yummy treat to devour one scene at a time.

Hedy cannot even save this turkey. And Henreid is not a romantic character that he tries to portray.
Please Play Again Soon
Hedy okay,but rest of cst shines.Love Victor Francen!
Warner Bros. hit in the tradition of Casablanca
- Linda Montane
I love this movie typical love story of the 1940's war torn Europe. Paul Henreid and Hedy Lamarr have fantastic screen chemistry.
- Fernando Ariza
The Conspirators brings together three of the great character actors also appearing in Casablanca. Heddy Lamar looks fantastic and Paul Henried once again looks great fighting the fascists of Europe.
Too much like Casablanca
- bob mccarthy
The theme was too much like Casablanca and then to have at least 3 of the same lead actors was just a bit too much... Hedy was gorgeous!
