Street of Shadows (French: Mademoiselle Docteur or Salonique, nid d'espions) is a 1937 French spy film directed by G. W. Pabst.[1] An English-language version with exactly the same plot was filmed at the same time under the direction of Edmond T. Gréville, but with some changes in the cast. Dita Parlo remained as Mademoiselle Doctuer, but Erich von Stroheim took over the part of the German spy chief. The English-language version was released in the United States under the title Under Secret Orders.[2]
