liked this film, different role for stewart, timely for today
7 August 1999 | by (concord, ca) – See all my reviews

Watching this film with jimmy stewart as a driven military man was interesting. I have always thought of stewart in the role in Harvey or its a wonderful life.

Stewarts characters struggle with power and his obsession to accomplish his objective was fun to watch. This film is worth the time spent and includes some great character actors of this period. I think it deserves its 6.6 overall rating.

Watching this movie develop reminded me of recent events in europe and made the film seem timely despite its age.
