Berlin Express

Four representatives of the Occupying Powers join forces to aid a 'good' German with an unspecified plan to unify his country in the immediate aftermath of WWII. Minor stuff, if diverting enough in its absurdity (Oberon picking her way through the rubble of Berlin in a series of Orry-Kelly gowns). But the train itself whisks the narrative along, and Tourneur's unflinching stare at postwar devastation owes less to any documentary pretensions that to an almost Langian beadiness of eye.
