Mission Speciale Details


Mission Speciale was the second entry in a two-part French "underground" drama of 1946. Like its predecessor [[Feature~V98063~L'Espionne~lespione]], the film was directed by Maurice de Canoge and stars [[Performer~P33037~Jany Holt~janyholt]] and [[Performer~P59649~Pierre Renoir~pierrerenoir]]. Set during WWII, the story details the activities of a small band of resistance fighters, headed by Intelligence agent [[Performer~P59649~Pierre Renoir~pierrerenoir]]. The unabashed patriotism of the effort tends to gloss over its many technical flaws and gaps in logic. In reissue, [[Feature~V98063~L'Espionne~lespione]] and Mission Speciale were both severely trimmed and released in tandem as a single feature. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
