Van Johnson plays against type
11 June 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This slightly off-kilter Columbia programmer stars Van Johnson as a Nazi double agent who first wins the confidence of the American POWs he's housed with and is then sent on a secret mission to infiltrate U.S. forces during late 1944's Ardennes offensive (more commonly known as The Battle of the Bulge). Johnson does his best as a bad guy, though the film makes an unreasonable stretch to make him sympathetic towards the end, and Dick York is quite good as an army sergeant thrust into a command position by the iniquitous actions of the German infiltrators. As always with a Sam Katzman production, the film tries to mask its low budget with plenty of stock footage, but it also benefits from location footage in The Netherlands. It's no classic, but is a pleasant enough diversion that also features Kerwin Mathews in a rare performance as a really, really bad guy.
