Will the Real Franz Strindler Please Stand Up. . .
Papa was raised in a family with Mennonite anti-war beliefs, and became an adult as the Pentecostal ‘speaking in tongues’ movement was gaining traction in the U.S. With the influence of Aimee Semple McPherson, Smith Wigglesworth and others, he decided to become a Pentecostal preacher. As a youngster I could not spend money at a movie theater to watch a movie because Papa said that the ticket money would help pay for the wicked ways of the movie stars whose wild lifestyles were talked about all around the country. . . But in the 1950’s when television was coming to the world, it was perfectly fine to watch those same movies at home in front of the tv set. With his peace loving mindset he didn’t enjoy many of the war movies from the World War II era, but he would have enjoyed this one. It is a World War II spy adventure, but mostly it is an ‘am I smart enough to figure it out’ mystery that happens to be set during the first days of the war. Arthur Bennett is a British Cabinet Minister, and his home is the center of spy activity. There is a nefarious enemy spy in London somewhere named Franz Strindler, and he seems to be in the room when the most secret war plans are discussed, quickly sending that secret information to the enemy. The British Secret Service must discover the identity of this super-spy at all costs, and we are along for the ride. Old movie fans will quickly wonder if Boris Karloff, famous for playing the part of the bad guy in movies, will turn out to be the mysterious master spy, but that might be too easy. This story is much more convoluted with twists and turns that will keep us wondering. Just as we think we know who the elusive spy is, something happens that throws the whole idea into the dust bin. The only thing we can be sure of is that the mysterious male spy is not the leading lady, played by Margaret Lindsay . . . . She is a spy for sure, but she is at least a double-agent, working both sides, but her motives and her loyalties are an ever-evolving mystery in themselves that will add to our confusion until the final scenes, when all will be revealed. Will you know who the mysterious spy is before he reveals himself? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
