An expansion of, and improvement upon, Lillian Hellman's stage play of the same name, Watch on the Rhine stars Paul Lukas, recreating his Broadway role of tireless anti-fascist crusader Kurt Muller. As the clouds of war gather in Europe in the late 1930s, Muller arrives in Washington DC, accompanied by his American wife Sara (top-billed Bette Davis) and their children Joshua (Donald Buka), Bodo (Eric Roberts) and Babette (Janis Wilson). The Mullers stay at the home of Sarah's wealthy mother

Watch on the Rhine is a distinguished picture. It is even better than its powerful original stage version.
...as important today as its was in 1943. (Bette Davis Collection, Volume 3)
Audience Reviews for Watch on the Rhine
- Fanny Farrelly: Well. We've been shaken out of the magnolias.
- Sara Muller: I would have married you any day of my life!
- Anise: Pssst. Ask Herr Müller to come up here.
- Fanny Farrelly: Why?
- Anise: Why? Why? Because he is a man in love with his wife and because his wife looks most beautiful. You are getting so old - you're no longer understand the matters of delicacy between a man and a woman!
- Joshua Miller: The door on the home was not locked. We just - came in!
- Kurt Muller: You find it curious to believe that there are people who live and do not need to watch, eh Joshua?
- Joshua Miller: It is strange. But it must be good, I think.
- Phili Von Ramme: How many of them come here? Our Herr Hitler violates their morality in the morning, but by evening they've recovered, and they're here to dinner at the Embassy. So it's done in most places for over seven years. I might almost suspect their morality.
- Kurt Muller: I fight against Fascism; that is my trade.
