“Escape” was one of the first Music Hall features to portray Nazi terrorism in Europe. Officially, the USA still remained “neutral” in conflicts raging around the world.
Terrific film few people know.
Shearer and Veidt(poor guy, fine actor who escaped the nazis and gets stuck playing them)
are wonderful in this.
Today Shearer who was really good and one of my favorites from this era always gets a bum rap.
