Yugoslav partisans grimly crop the hair of a village quintet of women believed to have consorted with the occupational Nazis. Four, for various reasons, have indeed - and their seducer is a lone, swaggering sergeant whom the partisans briskly emasculate. Escorted out of town by the sheepish Nazis, the forlorn ladies link up, patriotically and romantically, with a band of tough mountain guerrillas. Written by

Just short of two hours is lengthy for 1960. This melodrama is set in Middle Europe during WW2 and does have its moments. Five young women are scorned and humiliated for consorting with Nazis. Now with shaved heads, they band together to prove their patriotism and set out to fight the Germans. The resistance fighters don't want their help; so they seem to be fighting both forces...plus themselves. Strange casting is very obvious; and this moody movie may be hard for some to get into. War buffs will watch. I watched because of the enticing Vera Miles. Beside Miss Miles the very diverse cast includes: Barbara Bel Geddes, Silvana Mangano, Van Heflin, Richard Basehart, Jeanne Moreau and Steve Forrest. War causes people to do regrettable things.
