Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mission Speciale was the second entry in a two-part French "underground" drama of 1946. Like its predecessor L'Espionne, the film was directed by Maurice de Canoge and stars Jany Holt and Pierre Renoir. Set during WWII, the story details the activities of a small band of resistance fighters, headed by Intelligence agent Pierre Renoir. The unabashed patriotism of the effort tends to gloss over its many technical flaws and gaps in logic. In reissue, L'Espionne and Mission Speciale were both severely trimmed and released in tandem as a single feature.
