Trivia

Clark Gable's last picture under his MGM contract. He first signed with the studio in 1930 (he'd first appeared at the studio as an extra in The Merry Widow (1925)). By the 1950's his box office was spotty and MGM found it difficult to justify his $500,000 per year salary. Gable too was anxious to enter into far more lucrative percentage deals and would do so exclusively for the remaining 6 years of his life. See more »

Goofs

The cargo/troop planes shown dropping British paratroopers on Arnhem in 1944 are either C-82 Packets or its descendant the C-119 Flying Boxcar, both of which became operational after WWII. See more »

Absolutely smashingly great WW II movie!
13 August 2011 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

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.
