Storyline

'Twas the night before D-Day. One ship, carrying Special Force Six, leaves ahead of the main invasion on a dangerous mission. On board are British Colonel Wynter and American Captain Parker, who each, in flashback, reminisce about their separate involvements with beauteous Valerie Russell. Will the coming battle (confined to the film's last fifteen minutes) determine which one comes home to her? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

As bad as they come!
18 February 2010 | by (Derry, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Atrocious wartime romance filmed in widescreen and colour and very typical of its period, (it was made in the mid-fifties). Actually it has nothing very much to do with D-Day, (and it's so awful as to be something of an insult to the men who fought and died then). Rather that's when it begins as two of the men on board one of the ships, an American, (the inexplicably popular Robert Taylor), and a Brit, (the somewhat more charismatic Richard Todd), reminiscence in flashback about the woman they both love, (the beautiful but vacuous Dana Wynter). If it were better made, (it's directed by the monumentally untalented Henry Koster), it might have been tolerable but even by the standards of fifties' romantic tosh this is a real turkey, plucked, stuffed and oven-ready.
