If you will accept this premise, despite the evidence of recent deeds, then you should be both moved and shaken by the better part of this film.

With Tracy heading the cast and a host of great character actors in support, it's hardly surprising that the performances are the most memorable aspect of Zinnemann's first major feature.

One of the best of the swarms of anti-Nazi films Hollywood produced during the war years.

Spencer Tracy, usually solid, is miscast as a German who escapes from concentration camp, but then the whole saga is fake, compared to Zinnemann's later works.

Tracy is superb, while Zinnemann delivers a powerful piece of work that accurately captures the sense of time and place.
