Wayne and the other performers do an OK job but as it is neither comedy, romantic thriller or anything else it is all rather disappointing.
One feels as if one of the threads had been pursued it could have been something worthwhile. It is nonetheless interesting to see a real turkey of a story made just before the USA became directly involved with the war. I wonder if the surrounding politics had something to do with trying to make a movie for all tastes but ending up with something that pleases no one.
Nonetheless it has historical value.
