When the escaping German commander of the town shoots the Norwegian police chief the pistol is plainly seen beside the man's body, pointing towards the wall of the room not into the man's abdomen. So when he pulls the trigger the bullet would hit the wall not the policeman. See more »
Milligan, Reporter in Fleet Street Pub:
This is the man in the street, Frank, the average man. And he's asking you a question the average man in the street wants answering. World war over Danzig?
"Man-in-the-Street" in Fleet Street Pub:
That's right. As you say, Danzig's only a small place.
So was Thermopylae. And Verdun. And Madrid. All very small places. Big enough to bury the people that hadn't the guts to fight for them. Did you ever hear Hitler laugh?

That hour will strike, and its solemn peal will proclaim that the night is past and that the dawn has come." The Prime Minister (Winston Churchill) In the United States Senate 26-12-1941 See more »

I found the best scenes in this movie to be the ones in which Deborah Kerr was acting. And I'm not even a fan of hers (or I wasn't, before this!) so that must say something about her...it was only about her 5th or 6th role, she was very young, yet she was perfect for the role. The rest of the movie traveled along fairly slowly, but luckily had a few exciting war time scenes, and an outstanding, terrifying, climax. Good for a rainy day, and don't give up on it. 7/10.
