Trivia

Louis Calhern's scenes were shot in Hollywood and added to the film after the main work on the film had been done in England. The British actors in the film had had no idea he was going to be in the film, as his character was not included in the script they had worked from. See more »

Goofs

When Victor Mature is lying dead on the road, his right arm is outstretched and at a right angle to his body. When Clark Gable walks past him, his right arm is next to his side. See more »

I watched this because I would watch any film with Clark Gable--though I gotta admit this wasn't one of his better ones
4 September 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Before I say anything else, I need to talk about the film score. While one reviewer pointed out how they liked it, I found that after what seemed like the 800th repetition of the same calliope music, I was ready to scream! I truly hated the music and it really didn't seem all that appropriate to the film--sounding more like circus or organ grinder's music than something for a WWII flick.

Now apart from all that, the film was a reasonably competent film and Gable, Turner and Mature all did fine. However, being a die-hard Clark Gable fan, I really wish he had more to do in the film. While Victor Mature got 3rd billing, he really seemed much more the star in the film and he definitely came off best of the three.

Apart from the acting, the film technically seemed only okay. Not bad, but certainly not good either. The biggest problem is that although the film was made on location in Holland (a big plus), the actors never sounded or acted Dutch in the least. Case in point, Lana Turner calling a young Dutch lad "Jan"--with a j-sound. It should have been pronounced "Yan"--and those responsible for the film should have noticed or cared. But, in the end it looked and sounded like hardly anyone connected with the film was Dutch--very strange indeed when it is a location shoot! As for the plot, it seemed to drag a little bit but was also pretty unusual and interesting--and it's because of that the film managed to score a 6.
