Reviews

Collection of feature films inspired by the Great War. In 'I Was a Spy' (1933), Martha Cnockhaert (Madeleine Carroll) works as a spy in a German hospital, acting for the allies. Aided by orderly Stephan (Herbert Marshall), Martha plots to blow up a German ammunition dump. When Martha accompanies a German Commandant to Brussels, a change in the Kaiser's movements inadvertently reveals Martha's true purpose. '1914 All Out' (1987) is a made-for-TV drama set during World War I in a quiet Yorkshire village. While the locals are enjoying a Bank Holiday cricket match, their fun is cut short when war breaks out and the men go off to fight for their country. Set in the Scottish Orkney Islands during the First World War, 'The Spy In Black' (1939) tells the story of three German spies plotting to sink the British fleet. When U-Boat Captain Hardt (Conrad Veidt) makes contact with his beautiful co-conspirator (Valerie Hobson), he falls in love with her, but she is already having an affair with the third spy in their group, Royal Navy traitor Lieutenant Ashington (Sebastian Shaw).

Excellent collection of diverse films all with a different perspective of the WW1 conflict. '1914 All Out' (in colour) tells the touching story of the impact of the conflict from the perspective of a small village cricket in Yorkshire. As the War drags on the seemingly endless demand for more soldiers takes it toll on the ability of villagers to continue their daily lives.

The classic movie 'Spy in Black' stars Conrad Veidt as a German U Boat captain who is sent to the Scottish Isles to sink the British fleet. 'I Was A Spy' is a hidden gem of a film that has not been previously released With realistic footage of the German occupation of Belgium the films tells the story of a Belgian nurse who becomes a double agent haven fallen in love with a German soldier she was caring for.
