British Girls and the R.A.F. Pilots

I purchased my copy of this movie from an American company that specializes in public domain films, and it has been sitting on my shelf for a long time. I hesitated to watch it or to share it with you for a couple of reasons . . . . First, the company that sold the film put a new title page at the beginning and it is not even close to the real name of the movie, but the biggest reason I hesitated was the story plot. From the little I knew about it, I thought that the plot was about a concentration camp full of women during World War II, and it probably revealed in very graphic ways the horrors of the camp and the deprivation and torture that the prisoners endured. Boy, was I wrong, and thanks to a phone call from London I decided that I must get this movie online sooner than later. One afternoon as I was about to finish my day I answered the ringing of my cell phone . . . . Mike Jaffé was calling from London, England to chat about his grandfather Carl Jaffé, a British actor with six decades of work on stage, in film, on television and as a noted BBC radio announcer, writer and producer. His credits include over 80 separate parts on the German stage prior to his escape to London in 1936, more than 50 feature films and more than 40 English stage plays and over 30 TV appearances on BBC/ITV. At the beginning of World War II he was held in an internment camp with other Germans and Italians living in England because it was feared that foreign spies might be among them. Like many Italian and German actors he was soon acting again and doing his part for the British War effort. He appeared in more than 20 theatre productions for the British armed forces during the war, and also in many war time movies like this one. Because of his German background he often played the part of German officers, and in this story he is Sergeant Hentzner, the German in charge of a concentration camp in occupied France. Now, this is France, and this concentration camp for British women is actually a large luxury hotel, and the women are dressed like only the French can dress, with flair and beauty and perfectly gorgeous face and hair . . . . As a young adult of the 1970's I seldom missed a weekly television episoce of "Charlie's Angels" and this movie might be a 1940's version . . . . Very cool! . . . . One night as British planes are bombing the area a couple of planes are shot down and the surviving pilots wind up in this luxury hotel filled with 2,000 of the prettiest British ladies in France. These spunky gals will hide the British airmen and then help them escape back to Britain, while risking the wrath of the enemy soldiers . . . . Not at all what I expected . . . . . Thank you, Mike! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
