3.0 out of 5 stars JOAN CRAWFORD TAKES ON THE NAZI OCCUPATION OF FRANCE..., 2 Dec 2002

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Entertaining, though slightly absurd, World War II story. Rich French woman (Joan Crawford) is madly in love with and engaged to rich French industrialist (Philip Dorn). She is a self-indulgent society woman, until the war ravages the France she knew. Now, with France under Nazi occupation, her magnificent mansion in Paris in the hands of the German comquerors, her fiance seemingly in the thrall of the Nazis, she sees the light and undergoes a change. A fervent patriot, she rejects the Nazis and, in doing so, rejects her fiance.
An injured American RAF pilot (John Wayne) accosts her on the streets of Paris one night and induces a surprised Joan Crawford to help him escape those whom he believes are following him. She does so, but it soon becomes paramount that he leave France. She turns for help to her by now estranged fiance, whom she has spurned, because she perceived him as having collaborated with the enemy. To her surprise, he agrees to help her.
The pilot's departure does not go according to plan, however, and Joan discovers that things are not always what they seem. Though the viewer will probably realize what is going on before Joan does, this does not take away from the enjoyment of what is clearly a war propaganda film.
Philip Dorn is wonderful in the part of the rich French industrialist and Joan's fiance. Joan is, as always, beautifully garbed in exquisite outfits and give an excellent performance. John Wayne is overshadowed by his co-stars and seems somewhat awkward in the part of the American RAF pilot. While the screenplay is somewhat unbelievable, it is an entertaining film, nonetheless. Joan Crawford fans and those who love classic films will surely enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne and Howard Da Silva, 22 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reunion in France [DVD] [1943] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
John Wayne appears about 41 minutes into this film to rescue it from being a Joan Crawford movie. She is quite ballsy to the Nazis demanding to know why they have taken over her house, but they are easy on her which makes the confrontation less credible. Wayne throws a good punch at a Nazi officer about 64 minutes into the film, but the confrontation lacks credibility because there are no repercussions.

Howard Da Silva also appears about 41 minutes into the film as a Nazi, although not together with Wayne.

John Carradine makes an early appearance and is well-directed as a Nazi.
