Herbert Wilcox directs Anna Neagle, Trevor Howard and Marius Goring in this true life WWII espionage biopic about a British single mother who became an undercover spy supplying the French Resistance.
A rather stolid take on what should be a fascinating story. Everything is stiff upper lip and fair play. Except some awkwardly filmed torture that lingers on the perpetrators faces uncomfortably. There’s a similar film called Carve Her Name With Pride that retells the heroics of another real life volunteer that is far more cinematic and action packed.
