A Foreign Affair

SAM's salute to Jean Arthur concludes with Billy Wilder's sterling postwar satire of American do-good intentions crumbling in the rubble of Berlin. In the 1948 comedy, Arthur stars as a naïve congresswoman who falls for a soldier (John Lund) involved with various underground activities. Chief among them, of course, is the ex-Nazi café singer played by Marlene Dietrich. (NR) BRIAN MILLER
