The film utilizes an oft-used storyline of the war movie genre which has two soldiers in love with the same girl. See more »
Helmets worn by the Germans in the film are all World War I rather than the proper M 42 of the time. Truck and other German vehicles are shown with swastikas in a circle on their sides which is improper also. Black crosses boundaried with white on the sides coming together at the corner only; was what was proper. See more »
This film takes place during WW II in Southern France in 1944 almost at the end of the war. However, the Americans and German's were still fighting with each other in the fancy French Reveria where one minute it is calm and peaceful and the next minute there is a complete war going on with the Germans. Frank Sinatra plays the role as a First Lt. Sam Loggins who is a war veteran and he is given a new assignment to try and destroy and remove the Germans in Southern France. Sam hires a new Cpl. Britt Harris, (Tony Curtis) as a communications expert who will travel along with Sam and these two eventually get along with each other. Besides fighting the war, Sam Loggins goes on leave in town and meets a charming young gal who he seems to fall in love at first sight, this gal's name is Monique Blair, (Natalie Wood) who is an American but has lived most of her life in Southern France. Britt begins to take an interest in Monique and this is when the story gets very interesting and some secrets are uncovered in the life of Monique Blair. This is really a great Classic and a film you will not want to view. Enjoy.
