Starts out strong
20 October 2004 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

I was enjoying this movie very much until John Wayne arrived on the scene. Suddenly, after his arrival the movie breaks down and becomes a mess of clichés and silliness. The first half dealing with France being occupied, and how it impacted the lives of the French was quite interesting. The Nazi's of course were portrayed as inept, bumbling idiots. One can't help but notice that in this movie, Joan has perfected her definitive "Joan Crawford" look. The hair, the look, the clothes all come together here. Too bad the movie couldn't stay on track, but I guess Joan did need at least two lovers per movie. The chemistry between Joan and John works, but John looks like he'd rather be lassoing wild horses than capturing Nazi's!
