| good war spy movie
George Sanders stars with Marguerite Chapman in "Appointment in Berlin," a 1943 film directed by Alfred E. Green.

Sanders plays Keith Wilson, who is disgusted by his fellow Brits believing that Hitler will abide by any non-aggression treaty and speaks out against their passivity. Because he is an RAF officer, he is dismissed from the service. A friend (Alan Napier) in the secret service recruits him to pose as a traitor/Nazi sympathizer and spy for England.

Wilson is given the job of doing radio broadcasts, and by embedding a code in his speeches, he is able to give valuable information to Britain. Meanwhile, he falls for his Nazi boss' sister Ilse (Chapman), who seems unsupportive of her brother's actions.

Though this is kind of a downer - it's about war, after all - it's a good movie. Sanders gives his usual smooth, charming performance, though I think he was capable of much more. He had a wonderful voice and screen presence and livened up many a film.

I also liked Gail Sondergaard as a member of the underground. I actually didn't find Marguerite Chapman was all that good, though very pretty. Many years ago, before the Internet, I used to get a magazine for memorabilia collectors, and she had an ad in the classifieds to sell her personal memorabilia. I actually wasn't familiar with her at that time.

Worth seeing.
