Have any of you seen "Escape?" (1940-dir. Mervyn LeRoy)
Veidt is the German gentleman-officer who keeps Norma Shearer in a
very comfortable lifestyle until Robert Taylor (ugh.) comes along and
appeals to her patriotism to help him smuggle his mother out of a
labor camp. Veidt comes off as (IMHO) a sympathetic and
(uh oh here's where I get into trouble) honorable character. Too
bad it seems to be out of print.
