A Lonely German Baroness in a Non-Ending War
21 February 2020 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

With World War 2 in its final stages an American C-47 transport plane is flying over Germany releasing propaganda leaflets encouraging the Germans to surrender. However, when enemy flak rocks the airplane one of the Americans named "Lieutenant Roger Carrington" (Ken Berry) is accidentally thrown out and is forced to parachute behind enemy lines. Although his parachute is spotted by German troops he manages to evade them long enough to take shelter in a house owned by a wealth baroness named "Marlene" (Eva Gabor) who not only hates the war but has recently been widowed and is quite lonely. So to remedy the situation she hides him in a secret basement until the German troops begin to search elsewhere. Not long afterward, the war ends but rather than telling Roger this news Marlene convinces him that it is raging even more violently in order to keep him there with her. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a rather typical light-hearted comedy for the period in which it was made and was helped somewhat by the appearances of several grade-B actors including Werner Klemperer (as the German officer "Major Erich Mueller"), Jim Backus (as the American "Colonel") along with the aforementioned Ken Barry and Eva Gabor. To be clear, while this isn't a great comedy by any means, it managed to pass the time well enough and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
