A Lady Without Passport is a 1950 American film noir film directed by Joseph H. Lewis and starring Hedy Lamarr and John Hodiak. Written by Howard Dimsdale, the film is about a beautiful concentration-camp refugee who takes up residence in Cuba while waiting permission to enter the United States. An immigration agent decides to use her as bait to entrap the leader of an alien-smuggling ring. The agent falls in love with her, but she despises him for using her.

After World War II, people try to sneak into the U.S. illegally with the help of a human smuggling ring run by Palinov (George Macready). U.S. Immigration operative Peter Karczag (John Hodiak) is sent to Havana, where he poses as a Hungarian in need of Palinov’s services. During his dangerous undercover investigation, he falls in love with refugee Marianne Lorress (Hedy Lamarr).

When Palinov discovers Karczag’s true purpose, he first tries to have the agent killed. When that fails, Palinov decides to use his own services. He flies to the United States, with Lorress one of the other passengers. However, the airplane is being tracked by the U.S. government. It is crash landed in the Florida swamps in one last desperate attempt to elude capture.

Reception
Trevor Bardette

Despite the fact that the film was made on a small budget, most reviews find the Casablanca-like film entertaining.

Time Out Film Guide praises director Lewis. “A tight little script and economically etched characters provide a strong foundation, but it is Lewis’ evocative visuals that really turn this into a poverty row gem.”
