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".

Frieda is a 1947 British drama film directed by Basil Dearden and starring David Farrar, Glynis Johns and Mai Zetterling. Made by Michael Balcon at Ealing Studios, it is based on the 1946 play of the same title by Ronald Millar who co-wrote the screenplay with Angus MacPhail. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Jim Morahan and Michael Relph. During World War II, a German woman rescues an English prisoner-of-war. He decides to marry her, though he does not actually love her. Following the war, the couple settle in Oxfordshire. Frieda has to deal with both anti-German sentiment in post-war Britain, and with her unrepentant Nazi brother. The film was the ninth most popular film at the British box office in 1947. According to Kinematograph Weekly the 'biggest winner' at the box office in 1947 Britain was The Courtneys of Curzon Street, with "runners up" being The Jolson Story, Great Expectations, Odd Man Out, Frieda, Holiday Camp and Duel in the Sun. The film was released in 1948 in the United States to excellent box office results.
