Secret People (1952, Thorold Dickinson)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on May 4, 2019

Secret People is a very peculiar propaganda picture. It’s mostly set in 1937, almost entirely involving Italian immigrants, and it’s very pro-British. The film downplays the idea fascist regimes are dangerous (fascist regimes in 1937, remember) while getting behind the idea of doing whatever the read more

'Both celebrities.' But who's he?
