Editorial Reviews

Robert Wagner (Austin Powers, Wild Things) and Teri Garr (Young Frankenstein, The Conversation) star in this tale of international espionage, mystery and intrigue, adapted from the novel by international bestselling author Jack Higgins (Dark Justice, Brought in Dead).

In the summer of 1940, as war rages across Europe, two American expatriates combat a sinister plot by Hitler to abduct the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. When Hannah Winter, a nightclub singer in Berlin, comes into possession of a secret SS memo, she suddenly finds her life in jeopardy. Fleeing to Portugal, Hannah enlists the aid of nightclub owner Joe Jackson to avert an international crisis. As the struggle unfolds, their passion for one another flares.

The subject of the international intrigue surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's stay in Portugal after the fall of France could make a great film. This is not it. The casting; the script; and the acting all are supremely bad. Robert Wagner in white dinner jacket with cigarette in hand acting as some kind of displaced Rick from "Cassablanca" is just silly. Terri Garr is terrible in this. There's not a moment of real tension; real drama or real humanity in this. In a word: horrible.

Another great not well known WW2 story. Good acting and script. I have read a lot about SD General Walther Schellenberg, who headed the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Nazi Security Service (SD), and he is well portrayed in the film. Wish that other exploits of him were portrayed in film as well as those of SS General Otto Skorzeny who was head of the German Commandos. Another personages well portrayed were the former King of Great Britain and his american wife.

I thought the story of this movie was quite good, but the movie was brought down a star due to the lack-luster acting.

Terrible. Totally destroyed the original story and the acting (even Wagner) was horrible. Loved the book.
