Contraband. 1940.

A Danish sea captain goes against German spies during a blackout in London in the first year of WWII.

Conrad Veidt plays a heroic Danish ship's captain, a seemingly sinister fellow who is actually a humorous chap on the side of peace. He is seen early in the film harshly admonishing a passenger for not wearing a life jacket. Teaming up with beautiful Valarie Hobson, he finds himself involved in exposing nasty Nazi's plan to blow up an American Navy ship. With some light humour and creative direction with some nicely matched cinematography am this was a decent afternoon film to watch.
