Quite a thriller...
- el debbo
No spoilers here. Neagle seems to be the most-hated woman in Britain. The plot is clever, convoluted, full of mystery and twists, turns, surprises! As I am in Nova Scotia, Canada, I appreciated the attention given to Halifax and the infamous Halifax Explosion. A real first in classic movie history! Anyhow, this is a clever film; I need to see it again to figure it all out. Real treat to see Margaret Rutherford trip a monocled Nazi officer and then crow about it. Fun!!
Nazi Spies in Canada......4 STARS~
PLOT: Aristo Neagle pro Nazi to thwart a Nazi Plot.Anna Neagle is seen using a flashlight to contact some Nazi Bombers flying over wartime London. Then boards a ship to flea to Canada. Anna Neagle is Sally Maitland aka the "Yellow Canary" her code name given to her by Adolph Hitler. She acquired PRO NAZI views to aid in her scheme to infiltrate a Nazi Plot. As she sails to Canada Richard Green is Lt. Garrick is keeping an eye on her. Polish Officer Jan Orlock pursues her. She is most unpopular with her outspoken Pro Nazi views. This is very good and moves along well. Anna Neagle is very good and beautiful as Sally. Greene is likeable and smart who does just about anything to make time with the lovely Sally. the Nazi Plot slowly unfolds when Sally when Orlock we find is really a Nazi and seeks to use Sally in the scheme. I give it 4 out of 5. Look for a great plot twist where we discover the Nazi gang leader.
Nazi Spies in Canada......4 STARS......clever plot
PLOT: Nazi Sympathizer goes undercover to become involved in a Nazi plot in Canada.English Aristo Sally Maitland (ANNA NEAGLE) is spotted signaling Nazi Bombers with her flashlight. She is very PRO Nazi and soon is ousted to Canada for her views. On the ship Carina she meets handsome Lt. Commander Garrick (RICHARD GREENE) who is both annoying and seems to have an eye for the lovely Sally. She also catches the attention of a polish officer (JAN ORLOCK) who is going to Canada to visit his reclusive invalid mother. WE find that Sally is "The Yellow Canary" a code name given to her by Adolph Hitler. She is very suspect by the Canadians on landing in Halifax. When the mysterious Jan we find is really a NAZI and has a network of spies for espionage in Canada. Anna is lovely and hold her own against Greene who is attracted to her. This is a very good movie that has a clever plot that moves along well and keeps you guessing who the ring leader is. I give it 4 STARS.
