Eddie Albert's part in this film (as a US Air Force major) is one of several military roles he played in his earlier career. These were satirised in 'Green Acres', when it is explained that Oliver served as US pilot in WWII and was shot down over Hungary, where he was rescued by his future wife Lisa. See more »

This movie used to be on television all the time. It disappeared several years ago and hasn't reappeared on the tube or in video. It's interesting for a lot of reasons. Two great actresses, Lillian Gish and Irene Worth, are in it. Some fine British character actors including James Robertson Justice are outstanding in it. It's a suspenseful film about World War II and the scenes in Paris are particularly gripping. I too would give a lot to see it and own
