Under the Red Robe (1937), featuring masterful camerawork by award-winning cinematographer James Wong Howe, marks the final film by the godfather of Swedish cinema, Victor Seastrom (Sjostrom), who was also one of the most highly respected directors of silent film in early Hollywood. Acclaimed German actor Conrad Veidt, who stars as Gil de Berault, is well remembered for his role as Gestapo Major Strasser in the acclaimed WWII thriller, Casablanca (1942). Appearing here as the infamous Cardinal Richelieu, Raymond Massey received an Oscar nomination three years later for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the classic historical drama, Abe LIncoln in Illinois (1940).
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 249 ratings.
Conrad Veidt plays a French swordsman and gambler who, to prevent being hanged, agrees to serve as a spy for Cardinal Richelieu (played by Raymond Massey). Along the way he becomnes romantically involved with the sister (played by the beautiful Annabella)of the man he was sent to capture. Will he capture him or will love triumph? There's some light comedy and dueling along the way. Not a bad movie of its type.
