Nicely photographed...Mature does some of his worst most wooden acting....while the rest of the Brits are solid. Anthony Newley as a corporal is a panic and provides understated comedy relief throughout. My favorite scene is when Newley wanders into an ammo storehouse during the climatic battle and calmly asks for some dynamite. The man in charge gives him a hard time - sighting the requirement of paperwork. Newley then explains that there is a war going on outside - to which the man in charge then dryly states in that case he'll also need another piece of paperwork as well ! Newley finally talks the fellow into letting him have a single small case - so long as he doesn't tell anyone else - lest everyone come in asking for some. This one scene was worth the price of admission !
