FRIEDA, produced by Michael Balcon for Ealing Studios and directed by Basil Dearden (Victim, The Blue Lamp), stars Mai Zetterling (Torment), David Farrar (Went The Day Well?), Glynis Johns (Mary Poppins), Flora Robson (Fire Over England), Albert Lieven (The Life And Death of Colonel Blimp). Frieda (Mai Zetterling), a German girl, helps English Robert (David Farrar) to escape from a German prisoner-of-war camp and in return he marries her so she can obtain a British passport even though he does not love her. When returning to Robert's small English hometown, Frieda is met with hostile anti-German sentiment which is only worsened when her brother (Albert Lieven), a former Nazi and now Polish soldier arrives. What follows is a terrible awakening for Frieda who, deeply in love with her husband, cannot accept when Robert turns against her.
