Storyline

Documentary-style prologue follows training of O.S.S. agents for WWII work behind enemy lines. One of the group is a German "mole;" leaders Gibson and Sharkey are aware of this and scheme to feed him false info about the invasion of Europe, while the real agents go to France to find a secret V-2 rocket depot. But the German spy outsmarts them and rejoins his people knowing too much; Bob Sharkey takes the risk of going in after him. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

James Cagney at one time was the highest ranking Caucasian Black-belt in Judo and displayed a little of his expertise in the early part of this movie. He demonstrated first hand to the agents in training how to properly roll head over heels on on a mat. He said to "slap" the ground to lessen the impact. This is probably the first lesson learned in Judo training. Mr. Cagney really showed his Judo training in another movie, "Blood on the Sun" in which he battles the villain in hand to hand combat in a wharf-side warehouse. This scene alone is worth seeing him in action without a stunt double. See more »

Crazy Credits

Prologue, shown printed in a book: No single story could ever pay full tribute to the accomplishments of the U.S. Army Intelligence in World War II. Working secretly behind enemy lines, in close cooperation with our Allies, its brilliant work was an acknowledged factor in the final victory. The page turns to reveal: In order to obtain the maximum of realism and authenticity, all the exterior and interior settings in this Motion Picture were photographed in the field - - and, whenever possible, at the actual locations.

Double crossing double agents in WWII.
18 October 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Very interesting war drama starring James Cagney as a secret agent that has to infiltrate Nazi headquarters and double cross an enemy spy that has slipped into his own unit. The discovery of a German missile site location is the main objective. Cagney is air lifted into France and has trouble convincing French freedom fighters that he is there to loosen the Nazi strangle hold.

The cast is full of fine players: Richard Conte, Sam Jaffe, E.G. Marshall, Red Buttons, Karl Malden, Roland Winters and the lovely Annabella.

A great black and white flick evocative of the 40s. Catch it on AMC.
