I love Miss Viveca Lindfors but this movie is a poor substitute for Ninotchka with Garbo or Comrade X with Hedy Lamarr..or the musical version of the Garbo movie called Silk Stockings with Cyd Charisse. About a beautiful woman behind the iron curtain being corrupted by western influences like silk stockings, good coffee and champagne. The only advantage of this movie is that is was shot in Occupied Vienna a few years after the war and not in Hollywood like the others so the location adds something. The leading man is Swiss Actor Paul Hubschmidt who in American movies went by the name of Paul Christian. Viveca is perfectly cast and Mr Christian is a very good actor and very good-looking who had a much better career in Europe than he did in American movies which wasted him. There is a good cast of Austrian actors and a few laughs but it is not very original. Only for fans of Miss LIndfors of which I am one
