Although the movie proved to be a critical and commercial failure, Clark Gable was able to remain a Top 10 Box Office attraction for 1954 thanks to a successful re-release of Gone with the Wind (1939). See more »
When Victor Mature's stuntman climbs up onto the balcony of German headquarters, the knot on his trademark scarf is pointed to the left, but in the subsequent closeup of Mature himself the scarf's knot is pointed to the right. See more »
The flick starts with some of the best action ever. It continues with plenty of action as well as an incidental romance. Shot on location in Holland with a terrific cast, this flick is as good as they get! It has a fascinating plot as well.
It's basically a mystery set against the back drop of war. It's a case of who's the traitor? Ultimately, as with all good mysteries, the culprit is revealed. The discovery of the traitor and the traitor's motivation are revealed and make sense to the viewer.
Any flick with Clark gable is going to be good. Pair him up with Lana Turner as well as Victor Mature and you know it's got to be good just from the casting alone.
The only mystery to me is how anyone could give a vote of less than ten.
