Trivia

After firing machine guns, jumping from a parachute training platform, spending weeks learning unarmed combat, wading through an ice cold lake at night, spending many hours doing physical jerks and cross country runs, there was one thing that made actress Virginia McKenna scream with terror: a cockroach in a pile of vegetables.

Goofs

Violette boards the airplane on his first mission on the left side of the plane; however when she arrives she somehow gets out on the right side of the plane. This was not the type of airplane where that would be possible. This type of plane only has two positions. The markings on the left side that she boards on, are LXT; the markings on the right side TLX. These markings would always be the same (reading from right to left) on both sides of the plane.

A solid inspiring story of wartime bravery in World War II
9 April 2004 | by (Falmouth) – See all my reviews

It must be a sign of getting older but I find myself watching old films more and more now. Sky showed this film recently, and I much preferred it to some of the modern blockbusters they show. Virgina McKenna does an excellent job of portraying Violetta Szabo. Good old Jack Warner (Sergeant Dixon!) is excellent as the long suffering father. Paul Scofield is brilliant playing the part of Tony. It was directed by Lewis Gilbert, who also directed "Alfie" and "Educating Rita". It brings home the suffering normal people went through, as well as heroines like Violetta. I defy anyone not to be moved by the ending. Hopefully it is available on DVD now as it belongs in anyone`s collection.
