Paris After Dark

Paris After Dark is a 1943 American war drama film directed by Léonide Moguy and starring George Sanders, Philip Dorn and Brenda Marshall. It portrays the activities of the French resistance in occupied Paris during World War II.[1] The portrayal of the resistance was modeled on the Communist-led Front National, possibly due to the influence of screenwriter Harold Buchman who was known for his left-wing views.[2]
