Reviews for The Conspirators

Review - Conspirators, The

Really cheesy sets, with toy trains and fake rocks. Henreid seems to be playing his part tongue-in-cheek at first, which works. But then he gets serious and boring. Hedy just stands around and looks like Hedy, which is enough in a good movie, but not in this one. The final scenes, where all the freedom fighters and all the Nazi's end up at the same roulette table was seriously silly—so much for secrecy.
