Russ-Contraband (1940) - Excellent film, as only the Brit's knew how to make. The
verbal banter between the characters is marvelous. Conrad Veidt was an amazing actor
and it was a pleasure to see his nicer side. Great film. Loved the nautical way he
figured out where the girl was being held...and the way the cast was included in
the map reading....It just doesn't happen in modern films. Intelligent, creative

Louisa -Contraband (1940) - Loved the play between Hobson and Veidt, and I too
was surprised to see Veidt as a good guy and romantic interest. Interesting flick.

Frank -"Contraband" is a Hitchcock like thriller/romance that topped even the master.
It is 1/2 suspense, 1/2 Nick-Nora Charles. A surprise is Conrad Veidt who, more often
than not played a nasty Nazi. As a romantic lead he was a 10. The beautiful Valerie
Hobson was better than many Hollywoodites who strained in similar roles "Contraband"
