Fifties War Programmer
11 November 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Companion piece to the Katzman/Van Johnson The LAST BLITZKIEG, the pair seem to represent the trash generating mass producer's only ventures off shore.

Straight faced account of WW2 French Marquis men Johnson (!) and Aumont rescuing from Orleans Prison a German General condemned to death after the Von Staufenberg plot. Is he what he seems? Pale comparison with ILL MET BY MOONLIGHT.

Emott's location photography of Paris and surroundings in crisp black and white outclasses the other elements. Feeble action.

"There is no man so low that a woman or a dog cannot love him" Dostoivesky indeed!
