A severely shortened DVD and VHS videotape version, running only about 65 minutes, is presently being circulated among underground film dealers in both USA and Canada, who either ignore complaints from buyers, or else claim it's the USA release version. The USA release, as distributed by Twentieth Century-Fox in 1944, is the same length as the British version, 86 minutes.
Now we both go to earth. Feel like a climb? Know where you are?
Susan Foster: The Casbah.
Alan Thurston: That's it. The haunt of vice, the lair of criminals, the hideout of every thief and murderer in Algiers. I've lived here as safely as if I were in London.
When Susan is in the depot, the sign reads "Algers" instead of "Algiers."
Opening credits prologue: Our story takes place in Algeria during the uneasy period before the Allied Invasion of North Africa. Algiers - the headquarters of the German Armistice Commission - was under the control of the Vichy Government. Britain was fighting for her empire in the sands of Libya, and America, still friendly with Vichy, was preparing her first land campaign of the war in the west. It is a story - not of war but of adventure - of a secret meeting which paved the way for a great Allied victory.
