Frederick Leister in The Captive Heart

The Captive Heart

1946 NR

In a German POW camp, Czech officer Capt. Karel Hasek (Michael Redgrave) assumes the identity of dead British officer Capt. Geoffrey Mitchell, and to keep up the charade he must correspond with Mitchell's estranged wife, Celia (Rachel Kempson). The letters revive Celia's faded love for her husband, but the Gestapo is closing in on Hasek and is bound to expose him, forcing a heartbreaking realization from the amorous Celia.
