Richard Greene stars a British flight officer in Beyond the Curtain, while Eve Bartok costars as a German-born airline stewardess. When the stewardess' plane is forced down over East Germany, she is trapped behind the Iron Curtain due to her alien status. Officer Greene bypasses red tape and political haggling, preferring more direct means of rescuing Bartok. Lucie Mannheim and Marius Goring are on hand to lend the exotic mittel-European accents they'd been using in British films for decades.Beyond the Curtain was based on the novel Thunder Above by Charles F. Blair.
