The film takes place in the urban ruins in Germany shortly after WWII. It deals with some underground characters secretly planning to make the new Germany into some kind of nefarious country rather than a Western styled democracy. Characters from USA, Germany, France, Britain, and Russia try to foil the plans of the “bad” Germans. Lead actress Merle Oberon (most of her films made in Hollywood, but not this one) lived her life with the secret that she was Anglo-Indian, not 100% Caucasian. Because of Hollywood racism, she would never have been allowed to act in “white” films.

Don't consider this "B Movie" as anything other than a work of art. It is filmed on location just after World War II in Berlin and Frankfurt. To say the least this is a once in a lifetime location to film a spy movie. At just over 60 minutes, "Berlin Express" will keep you in suspense. Expect Merle Oberon to surprise you as a German secretary. A young Robert Ryan plays a great part in fighting "die hard Nazi's" still working in post war Germany. A great piece of film work that many may have missed!

This moves easily and smartly along. Like The 3rd Man, it documents w/ pictures of post WWII Europe.

old fashioned in a bad way - stilted and sentimental - several good cast members
