Terrific essay, Thom. I haven't seen this one yet, but I've long wanted to. I hope you're right about a forthcoming DVD release.

I'm glad to see your "March of Time" moving forward again. You've got me trying to guess next week's essay. I have an idea, but I'll wait patiently for the unveiling...

Brian - thanks for the encouragement. It's good to get this blog moving forward again. Time marches on...!

You know, as I began reading about films from the war period (I've found I'm woefully ignorant of most wartime flicks outside of the biggies) this film popped up in everything I read yet I couldn't find it for the longest time. Maybe we'll see it coupled with Black Legion, Underground, Espionage Agent, British Intelligence and others in a Warners Bros. propaganda box set someday? Then again, probably not :P

It would be a shame if this movie is overlooked; not only because of it's historical significance, but also because of the creative ways Litvak tells this story.
