Dreary quota quickie
13 September 2000 | by Anne_SharpSee all my reviews

This uninspired "Prisoner of Zenda" ripoff has little to recommend it, and certainly not George Sanders, who's as unconvincing as an English action hero as he is as a Stroheim-style Prussian. Peter Lorre seems to be here mainly for the marquee value of his name, as he's given absolutely nothing to do.
