Our Score
In the darkest days of the Second World War, dashing John Clements gets mixed up with French freedom fighters, and especially with two women: Greta Gynt, seemingly pro-Nazi, and waitress Judy Kelly, who actually is hustling for the occupying forces. Casablanca this isn't; it is, however, packed with action, and Clements is excellent in what today, seems like a rather obvious piece of propaganda unsurprising, really, since it was produced by British Aviation Films. Watch for a young Herbert Lom way down in the cast. In the USA, the film was retitled At Dawn We Die, which seems rather to contradict the English title!

Summary

The mayor of a small town in occupied France collaborates with the Nazis, but does not realise his daughter is working with the Resistance. She offers shelter to an idealistic fugitive travelling without identification papers, who helps the rebels with smuggling Allied airmen into Britain. Second World War adventure, starring John Clements and Greta Gynt.
