"Achtung! Feind hört mit!" was Kirsten Heiberg's first film as a full member of the Reichsfilmkammer, a membership she obtained April 5th 1940. For her previous films she had signed special contracts, for which the film companies had to get a special permission from Goebbel's ministry. This new film was a spy movie, being produced as part of a big campaign aginst enemy, especially British, espionage. Kirsten Heiberg acts as Lily, the English owner of a fashion boutique, which is used as a cover for the real business: To get hold of military secrets from a factory producing important steel wires for the Wehrmacht. One of Germany's leading directors, Arthur Maria Rabenalt, was called in to direct the film. He kept it in a strictly realistic style, with no romantic flair about it. At the end of the film, the spies are caught, and the Germans who have cooperated with them are being executed.
