How did you know how to stay quiet? Asks her boss, who she reveals to him as a spy. The Fighting 69th (Brenda Marshall & Cary Grant), the black & white classic war film lover & secretary to him tells her. She gives him the easy heads-up about the interpreter who has served him for years. He is a double-spy, who until she came, flew high playing both sides. “He tripled the number of airplanes coming into the city.” He, the man who would become her real husband, postwar, coordinated behind German enemy lines as a fake SS Officer – Even, he said, the night came as a complete surprise. Together, they changed history. “It’s not the right time for us,” he told her as he took off on the plane to leave for Germany. His departure from her fueled her lifelong inner desire, a woman who studied life as an typist & office manager at Queens College, to become an extreme and efficient, although throughly untrained spy on the German front, and living amongst (in the homes of) several high up Natzi officials. “I saw you on the streets this morning.” Her first primary intro into his life was the real line that got the two hooked up together first and foremost and for life.

The skills she had developed helped her work as a nanny a lot more than as a cook, which at least did get her foot in the door. She understands German (her German-jew mother only spoke that language alone), so she tells him in English, my grandmother owned a button, not a butcher company. “Does she prefer Germany?” her boss prospective asks. “She’s Jewish?” Another strange question follows. “You’re Jewish.” But as if logic which did also seem to also defy other adoptions of such. Therefore, she also refuses to stand up & turn around as a part of the interview. It did not take her long, the future wife on our side, and as our beloved Ed Leland who dictated letters to her for weeks at a time, finally asks him one day why his code makes no sense and why he shreds everything else. The true story about a very free-thinking and absolutely non-submissive woman who loved him despite his bouts of traditional male thinking, lived not during our time now, but in the 1940’s. His best ally, she broke codes and interpreted German for him perfectly. She had a poor woman German accent and an ingenious ingenuity about truth, and more specifically the truth. She was his life-salvation, and not the other way around. “Your wife’s name is not Sunflower…you don’t even have a wife.” She told him. She also advises him that his English Channel suitcase wardrobe will get him caught by the Germans. Figs & dates, are according to her, appropriate for airplanes, and also during dictation. She learned all of her top secret expertise by watching WW. II. films, and one of the few persons to photo top secret Natzi military strategy and the blueprint plans of the Germans for the first atomic-bombs and all of that research going on at the time.
