War / Suspense / Spy
Directed by Vincent Sherman
Cast: Jeffrey Lynn, Philip Dorn, Kaaren Verne and Mona Maris
Set during the early days of World War II, Underground is an intriguing tale of danger and suspense set in Nazi Germany starring Jeffrey Lynn (Butterfield 8) and Philip Dorn (Spy Hunt ). Celebrated director Vincent Sherman (Backfire, The Adventures of Don Juan, All Through the Night, Mr. Skeffington) lives up to his reputation for directing some of the most memorable films made in the 40's, 50's and even 60's with this story of the anti-Nazi underground and its attempts to usurp the Nazi regime and put an end to its war machine through the broadcast of an outlawed radio program.
Released almost six months before the United States entered WWII, Underground provides an interesting historical perspective of the American take on Germany’s Nazi Occupation before the fighting hit home.
