Comrade X


Time Out says

By no means classic Vidor: its characters - Gable as an American journalist in Soviet Russia, Lamarr as the source of his scoop stories - are simply too bland to animate the film. Only in the last sequence, where Gable and Lamarr escape from Russia in a tank, closely pursued by virtually the whole of the Russian army, does Vidor successfully visualise (albeit comically: the script is by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer) the tensions that the characters set in motion. A superb piece of entertainment, none the less.
