Edge of Darkness (23-Mar-1943)

Director: Lewis Milestone

Writer: Robert Rossen

From novel: The Edge of Darkness by William Woods

Keywords: Drama, WWII

Villagers of a Norwegian coastal community suffer under Nazi rule, later to rise up against their occupiers. While intended as propaganda, it rises far above that. Errol Flynn is Gunnar Brogge, fisherman and head of resistance; Ann Sheridan his love interest, and her father, John Huston, town physician who was content to wait out the occupation. Effective and realistic performances all around.
