Hollywood imagines Paris under Occupation, 1943

I always find Hollywood and British propaganda films from the WW2 years fascinating.

Film-makers were particularly keen to tell heroic stories about life in Nazi-Occupied countries, showing how people resisted: the courage of the oppressed over the foolishness and barbarity of the oppressor.

Here is one I had not seen until recently: Paris After Dark, from 1943.
