The film that puts the question - Would YOU take Frieda into YOUR Home? The 1947 Film About An RAF Pilot Who Married The German Woman Who Helped Him Escape A German Concentration Camp!


When Robert Dawson escapes from a German prisoner of war camp in early 1945, he brings more than his person back to wartime England - he brings along with him his newly wed wife, the German woman who helped him escape. Together they plumb the depths of pride and prejudice as both his family and his community struggle with whether and how to accept them. His mother lost his brother on a flying mission over the same town her new daughter-in-law lost both her parents; his aunt is running for elective office largely on a platform of retribution against all Germans for their collective war guilt; and his sister-in-law can't bear to look at him because each time she sees him she sees his dead brother instead. As all this whirls around Frieda, her thought-to-be-dead brother appears on their doorstep and the drama thickens far further. This is an extraordinary film, one that encapsulates the mores and attitudes of a time when, trying to be noble in victory after history's most terrible war, Britons attempted to make good of their new relationship with their once-again defeated German foe, and a film that argues, for all the distance that it goes in securing the war guilt of the German people, for the need to harken to what Abraham Lincoln called "the better angels of our nature". (1947, Black & White, 1:38).
