Fraulein ★★★

As Germany collapses and the allies capture Berlin, young, beautiful Dana Wynter becomes an internal refugee whose safety is continually threatened due to the chaotic conditions within the city. American Army Major Mel Ferrer helps Wynter find tranquility and the happiness of a secure future.

The grim aftermath of Germany’s fall is depicted. The script tries to bring out the events, and the acting is acceptable, but the make-up, costumes, and sets are too clean and bland to convey the gritty atmosphere of immediate postwar Berlin. Only the documentary shots of the broken streets of the city clearly show the devastating results of war.
