First time I see this film, and I find it very good. I have not found a review yet for the character Hans Schmidt, who ends up being the real hero of the film, beautifully played by Peter von Zerneck, as usual.

In most of Ms Oberon's films, she is beautifully over-dressed... no matter what the film. This obvious ploy is to distract from her dull performances. The wardrobe department for Berlin Express chose to abandon that logic and put her in the most unattractive outfit ever to hit the screen... topped off by a hat that would flatter no one, proving once and for all that no matter how she was dressed, her performances were uniformly lackluster.
Really impressive film noir thriller.
Jacques Tourneur got a lot of things right in Berlin Express, one of handful bona fide film noir pictures shot on location.
video of Berlin
The end of the movie with the video of what was left of Berlin is amazing - it is hard to believe that this is a real video, especially if you have visited the Brandenburg gate recently. Thanks for showing "old" movies!
Good, I like the authenticity as I was there in Germany as a very young child, visiiing1 We as Americans, need to keep an awareness of active/post WWII history. I am part German and part Czech...and at times, when I am in Europe, I feel fully at home. I have asked relatives in Germany about their being forced into the Nazi youth and having to serve...etc. Serve, and be a youth----or someone in your family will disappear or be killed.....We in the USA need to keep our guns and be ready to use them--we must never let a group take us anywhere we do not want to go....never into a rail car, or into a truck, or to let FEMA goons get us!!!

Not bad, not good
With Jacques Tourneur at the helm, Robert Ryan as the male lead and a spy story set in postwar Germany, i was expecting a lot. More than it deserves, it turns out. First of all, Merle Oberon is pretty but dull, as usual. Secondly, the story is confusing and unconvincing. Thirdly, the allied team of English, Russian and American soldiers neither gell as a team nor oppose each other, they just keep each other company.In a good spy thriller sparks should fly, this just sizzles to an end. Still, it has some good moments, but could have been so much better.
This movie shows how Germany was able to instill fear in the hearts of many people. It is scary to think that these practices are still in effect in many countries of the world.It is a shame that ordinary groups of people are blamed for problems that they never cause.
