John Hodiak and William Bendix reunite (they were in Lifeboat together) as soldiers keeping order in an Italian town. Hodiak is very charismatic, making one wish for more of his movies to be on video. Bendix is great, and Harry Morgan is excellent in this "boning up for Colonel Potter" role. Gene Tierney is both luminescent and down to earth as Tina. This film is funny, touching, and, at times just plain gleeful.
