“u0026quot;Escape in the Fogu0026quot; is an intriguing 1945 B movie directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Nina Foch and Otto Kruger. Foch is a nurse, Eileen Carr, honorably discharged from the service after a something akin to a nervous breakdown. She has a nightmare where she witnesses a man being attacked on the Golden Gate Bridge. Once awake, she meets the actual victim in her dream, Barry Malcolm (William Wright) who is staying in the same place. Thereu0026#39;s an immediate attraction, and he offers to take her to San Francisco with him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOnce there, Malcolm, a special agent, gets orders from his boss, Paul Devon (Kruger) to go to Hong Kong to deliver a package to the Chinese underground. Devonu0026#39;s house has been bugged by the Axis, and they follow Malcolm to get the package. When itu0026#39;s revealed that the people who picked up Malcolm were not sent by Devon, Eileen realizes her dream is about to come true, and she rushes to the Golden Gate Bridge. The rest of the story takes place from there.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a pretty preposterous tale, but entertaining nonetheless, with a strong performance by the lovely Foch. Baby boomers like myself remember her as an older woman and a constant television presence. Here sheu0026#39;s young, and she and Kruger do an excellent job of holding this film together.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you can overcome the plot holes, youu0026#39;ll enjoy this one.”
