NOW IT CAN BE TOLD (1946) recreates the top secret missions of British agents behind enemy lines during the Second World War. What makes the film so unusual and compelling is that the 'stars' of the film are the real life secret agents themselves, replaying their wartime roles in front of the cameras. Captain Harry Rée and Jacqueline Nearne faithfully recreate their wartime missions as agents 'Felix' and 'Cat'.
Together, they help to sabotage Nazi troops in occupied France and to assist the Allies by paving the way for the D-Day invasion. This compelling film provides a fascinating insight into the work of the Special Operations Executive and includes extensive training sequences as well as film of missions in France. Made by the RAF Film Production Unit, a shorter version of this film was released as School for Danger.
