Passage to Marseilles (1944): review: 2.5/10

How some French convicts escaped Devil's Island during the German Occupation of France to fight in the Free French forces, in the UK.

All the convicts turn out to have hearts of pure gold, and the whole is nothing more than an exercise in pro Free-French propaganda, told in flashbacks by cardboard characters and interspersed with speeches exalting French patriotism.

Even Bogey cannot save this one!
