Review: ‘Dangerously They Live’

This meller treats with Nazi spies and Bundsmen in the United States. Scripter Marion Parsonnet, although turning in a workmanlike job on the dialog, is certainly not hep to hospital routine or the methods of neurologists. She makes the treatment of a brain injury resulting in amnesia look so simple as to also look silly.

This meller treats with Nazi spies and Bundsmen in the United States. Scripter Marion Parsonnet, although turning in a workmanlike job on the dialog, is certainly not hep to hospital routine or the methods of neurologists. She makes the treatment of a brain injury resulting in amnesia look so simple as to also look silly.

The story starts excitingly when Nancy Coleman, a British Intelligence operative, is kidnapped by German spies while en route to Grand Central Station in NY with vital shipping i hospital by ambulance-doctor John Garfield.

Garfield looks and acts least impressive when playing a man in white. Later he gets over with his usual expert acting. Coleman is pretty and a fine little actress. She has the most difficult histrionic part and acquits herself all the way.
