Deborah Kerr is an Irish country lass brought up on her father's romanticised view of his heroic struggle against the English.
She leaves home for Dublin, where she wants to join the IRA, but is recruited by the Germans.
She gets entangled with Trevor Howard, a British officer, and conflicting loyalties ensue for both.
It's a classy piece, finely acted, atmospherically shot. There's suspense, humour, romance, and a strong plot. Kerr lives up to the three-dimensional role, and the rest of the cast give sterling support.
