Entertainment Review
The article evaluates the German motion picture "Marriage in the Shadows." The film opens with two actors playing a love-death in a costume play in Berlin, Germany. The actor marries a Jewish actress when she is forced apart from her fiancée as he becomes a Nazi official. There are moments of stress in the film when the husband accuses his wife of having submitted to a marriage of convenience. When the fact that the actress is Jew, is exposed to public, both of the lovers commit suicide to preserve their union.
