While there may indeed have been some so-called 'stolen' scenes, the one in the restaurant isn't one of them. The bystanders were watching the action because of the loud and drunken behavior of Madge (Veda Ann Borg) and the actor who comes to their table. See more »

Many people will disagree, but this is one of my favorite John Wayne films of all time, and for all the wrong reasons: This film is a cold-war camp classic that has to be seen to be believed. Imagine Alfred the Butler from the 1960's TV show Batman as the head commie and you have some idea what you are in for. James Arness is such great at John Wayne's side kick who hates commies because they shot at him during the war. I could watch this film anytime because it is very relaxing and has a quiet air about it, but at the same time, such a harsh reminder of what America was like in the 50's.
