Rating: C -- Ineffective wartime flagwaver that's all over the map as both a spy story and a woman's pic. Full Review

Rating: D -- One of the worst John Wayne pictures, actually more of a Joan Crawford-MGM fake vehicle, in which she plays a French model engaged to a seemingly pro-Nazi industrialist designer (played by Philip Dorn). Full Review

Product Description:

"Paris. May 9, 1940. The ninth night of the ninth month of a war too uneventful to be taken seriously and too far away to worry about," says the opening legend of Jules Dassin's REUNION IN FRANCE. While the indolent French upper class enjoy its nightly entertainment, Michele de la Becque (Joan Crawford) prepares for her vacation in the South of France. However, she is annoyed that her fiancé, government official Robert Cortot (Philip Dorn), won't accompany her: He has defense duties. She goes alone, but her complacency is short-lived. The Germans invade, bypassing the Maginot Line. Michele is caught up in people fleeing their homes. She returns to Paris a changed woman. But Robert has also changed: He's become a Nazi collaborator. So when Michele meets escaping prisoner of war Pat Talbot (John Wayne), it's no surprise that she decides to help him.

Twelve months after the U.S. entered WWII, REUNION IN FRANCE was released. It is an intriguing account of occupied France filmed by director Jules Dassin and director of photography Robert Planck in crisp, clear prenoir images. Wayne gives a good-humored performance, Dorn is secretive and intense, and Crawford goes from haughty complacency to anxious concern.

Plot Synopsis:

A spoiled rich woman in Paris believes her fiancee is producing weapons for the Nazis, and so takes up with an American flyer.


Production Notes:

  • REUNION IN FRANCE was released in December, 1942.
  • In a long drawn out story conference that occurred before REUNION IN FRANCE was filmed, director Jules Dassin was frustrated that the main concern of the studio MGM was how to justify keeping Joan Crawford clothed in elegant gowns after her house was taken over and most of her things were confiscated by the Nazis. The eventual solution was to have her become one of the sales staff at the haute couture salon that she had previously patronized.
  • The film is based on an original story by Ladislas Bus-Fekete.
