| Slower than the Rhine
As others have noted, this film moves at a slow place, with nothing much seeming to happen. Perhaps the real star is the Rhine itself, with a number of touches of a travel documentary.

When I fast-forwarded though a recording, I briefly wonder if the villain was played by Richard Todd, and the hero reminded me of Alan Ladd. When I watched the film at normal speed, both the actual actors struck me as a bit low-key, and the most striking impression was made by Marius Goring's hair, especially in his first scene!

I'm unsure why Herman had to knock out the nightwatchman, and he did seem to have a bit of luck in his search for Lora.
