Review: The Seventh Cross (1944)

By Brandy Dean on Mar 3, 2013 From Pretty Clever Films

Seven prisoners escape from a concentration camp and struggle across Nazi Germany. Six are captured, tortured, and strung up on one of seven crosses in built in the camp. The seventh cross remains empty. That’s some powerful, if heavy-handed symbolism, especially for a film made in 1944. The S... Read full article

Quotes from

Bruno Sauer: I came because I had something to tell you.
Leo Hermann: We haven't seen you for some time. Sit down.
Bruno Sauer: No, thank you. I'll just tell you, and then I'll go. A man came to see me this morning. I had never seen him before, but what he told me may be something in which you are interested. He said he came with a message from a mutual friend. He didn't name the mutual friend, but I think he was speaking of George Heisler. You all know that Heisler escaped from Westhofen and is hiding somewhere in the city. He needs help. I think that's why he sent the man to me. I couldn't be sure the man was what he said he was, so I sent him away. I think now I may have been mistaken.
Leo Hermann: What was the messenger's name?
Bruno Sauer: I don't know. He didn't tell me.
Leo Hermann: What did he look like?
Bruno Sauer: Small, slight, sandy-haired and freckled. Clothes - he might have been a factory worker. He wore glasses.
Franz Marnet: That must be...
Bruno Sauer: I don't blame you for not being willing to speak in front of me. I'll go now. I've told you all I know.
Leo Hermann: Wait. Sit down. You've done a great deal for us. Franz, who's the man?
Franz Marnet: Paul Roeder. It must be Paul Roeder. Little? A wide mouth? A manner like a boy? I'm not sure where he lives, but I know the neighborhood. I'll inquire at the market.


Bruno Sauer: Come in. You want to see me? What can I do for you?
[Sauer is at the mirror, shaving with a straight razor]
Paul Roeder: I bring you the regards of a mutual friend. I wonder if you still remember him. He was with you once on a canoeing excursion.
[Sauer pauses and looks frightened, then continues shaving]
Bruno Sauer: I'm afraid I don't understand. Whose regards are you bringing me?
Paul Roeder: It was more than three years ago. You said to him that if there was ever something big he wanted done, he could count on you.
Bruno Sauer: I still don't understand at all. I think you must have the wrong address. You'll have to excuse me. I'm afraid your friend put you in touch with the wrong man. I happen to be in a great hurry just now. Hedy! Will you show this man the door, Hedy?
[He continues shaving, but he cuts himself]


Leo Hermann: Welcome home.
Bruno Sauer: Thank you for speaking of your plans in front of me. It's a good feeling.
