Odette is a 1950 film directed by Herbert Wilcox with a screenplay by Warren Chetham-Strode. The film starred Anna Neagle as Odette Sansom, an Allied French-born heroine of World War II who joined the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and was sent to France to work with the resistance. Trevor Howard played the part of Peter Churchill, the British agent she mainly worked with. Peter Ustinov played their radio operator. Churchill and Odette were both captured by the Nazis after having operated successfully for some time. Odette was badly tortured but didn't reveal anything. She was sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp, survived and was awarded the George Cross (The highest British award for bravery not directly in the face of the enemy). Colonel Maurice Buckmaster, who was head of the SOE's French Section, played himself in the film, as did Paddy Sproule, a female SOE agent.
