British Intellengence dispatches Commando Geoffrey Carter on a one-man raid to destroy a munitions plant that manufactures bombs in Nazi-occupied France. He enlists the aid of a patriotic farmer, M. Bonnard, that lives near the plant, over the objections of his daughter Odette Bonnard, who believes that the British were responsible for the fall of France. Her attitude softens toward Carter, who is living with the family as posing as a son, but Odette cannot bring herself to aid in Carter's plan because of her fear of reprisals against her family. She turns informer and the Nazis capture Carter. Written by

When Carter and Bonnard view the factory from the hillside, there are five small smokestacks and one large smokestack. Later, the factory is shown with six small smokestacks and one large smokestack. During the bombing raid, there are five small smokestacks, and then six again. See more »
Another of those countless propaganda movies which intended to depict France during the Occupation.This movie bears the appropriate scars of the time.Annabella ,who was Tyrone Power's wife at the time and who lost her brother in WW2,was anxious to make something for her country.Not only she starred in this half-decent flick,but she also played on stage for the soldiers afterward.
An English soldier comes to occupied France:he's got to facilitate the raid (check the title).An arms factory must be destroyed.He winds up in a family : the daughter hates the English who killed her brother ,the father is a resistant fighter and the mother never got over her son's loss and is a bit lunatic .So our hero could easily pass for the late boy ,who would be just back from war.No sooner said than done.
Everybody speaks English ,the English spy (of course) ,the French and the Germans.John Sutton and Dalio exchanges two sentences in French,the former mumbles a "Auf Wiedersehn" and that's it.Annabella shouts "Vive la France" towards the end and the women working in the field sing the martial anthem "Le Chant Du Départ" " .The soundtrack uses "Auprès de Ma Blonde" and "La Marseillaise " over and over again,after an appropriate "Rule Britannia" for the beginning.
