Not a Great Film
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never viewed this Richard Widmark film and was very disappointed at the entire picture. In this picture Widmark plays the role as an Air Force Sgt Joe Lawrence who is stationed in Berlin and is eager to retire but he always manages to get himself into trouble. Joe leaves his jeep on a street and it gets stolen by a homeless young German boy who runs the jeep into a ditch and destroys the axle. Joe follows the boy to where he lives and meets up with a pretty blonde named Maria, (Mai Zetterling) and they both fall in love with each other. Joe becomes interested in making a quick buck by stealing some old Nazi precious goods and the story takes another twist and becomes very detailed and confusing.
