Goofs

After bombing the enemy airfield three survivors of the British commando team are hiding behind some rocks above a mountain road. On the road below a group of enemy soldiers appear before the bend in the road. They are barely visible (1:25:40). A few seconds later the group of enemy soldiers have passed the bend in the road and they are very near and clearly visible (1:25:46). The camera pans away from them and a few seconds later when it pans back to the group of enemy soldiers, the group is again before the bend in the road, far away and barely visible (1:25:48).

Effective Action Movie WW2 with Authentic Aircraft
21 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film will be of great interest to WW2 Aviation enthusiasts as it features several authentic Italian Savoia - Marchetti S.M. 79 three - motor bombers. These aircraft were provided by the Lebanese Air Force which was the last operator of the type.

I would make an educated guess that this film was shot on Cyprus as there is an abundance of British Army trucks and armoured cars modified and painted to resemble German vehicles. A Bristol Beaufighter aircraft can also be briefly glimpsed during the airfield attack sequence.

The special effects ,such as model aircraft being blown up, are not up to modern standards but they are no worse than other 1950s war movies such as "The Dambusters".
