Arch of Triumph movie scene

Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman in Arch of Triumph.

The 1948 wartime drama-romance movie Arch of Triumph stars Charles Boyer (The Earrings of Madame de…), Charles Laughton (Island of Lost Souls) and Ingrid Berman (Casablanca).

In 1938, Paris has become a haven for refugees trying to escape growing Nazi power. Boyer plays Dr. Ravic, a German surgeon practicing medicine illegally in France. Always one step away from being discovered and sent back to Germany, he seeks revenge on his enemy, a Nazi officer (Laughton), who tortured him.

One night, he saves Joan Madou (Bergman), a woman cast adrift after the death of her lover. He finds her a job singing at a nightclub, and eventually they begin an affair, only to be separated when Ravic is found out and deported.

An adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s novel directed by Lewis Milestone’s (All Quiet on the Western Front), Arch of Triumph is an atmospheric tale of romance and revenge — set among the rising tensions of a continent at the brink of war. The movie makes its U.S.  Blu-ray debut with this edition from Olive Films.
