Run of the mill, some redeeming features
14 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The opening credits were a bit of a shock, the captions being a vivid scarlet that almost hurt the eyes. This was in contrast to the rest of the film, which, as another reviewer has noted,was in a washed-out colour - I wonder if this was deliberate so that it matched the real-life action footage?

Hayden himself had served behind enemy lines during the actual war and filled the lead role in a stolid sort of way. The Italian partisans looked realistic, and Joy Page didn't jar too much as the girl member, though the trousers made her appear very dumpy and I'm never keen on instant romances as depicted in this film. The method used to detect the suspect traitor was a bit curious, as there seemed no evidence that he had actually betrayed his comrades.
