Another American propaganda film although interestingly scripted by the self confessed Communist, John Howard Lawson. How Hollywood was about to change!! An interesting storyline tautly directed and a great cast of talented actors, most notably Humphrey Bogart as Joe Rossi separates this film from other wartime jingoism.
