Tomorrow We Live
French resistance tale based on the true-life story of agent Pearl Witherington.
Dir George King
With Greta Gynt, John Clements
The US title, At Dawn We Die, is a more apt description of this tale of espionage and French resistance, based on a story by Dorothy Hope and scripted by Katherine Strueby. Gynt plays Marie Duchesne, a role loosely based on real-life Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent Pearl Witherington. Marie leads partisans while wooing the ruthless Nazi occupying commander.
