When I viewed this film I was quite surprised to see a very young Gregory Peck,"Spellbound",'45, give an outstanding performance in a black and white film about a few Russian citizens defending their country against the Nazi take over of their town. The Nazi Army utilized many tanks in order to take over this town and out numbered the Russian's by a very large percentage. Tamara Toumanova,(Nina Ivanova),Torn Curtain",'66 gave an outstanding supporting role who was very young and attractive. Nina was able to put some romance into this picture with her good looks and sexy boots. Tamara Toumanova and Gregory Peck were a great couple in this film and it is too bad she decided to marry the director of this film right after production. A great Classic film that is worth while viewing.
