Ross Martin displays versatility as villainous commandant.
28 May 1999 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

When I saw this in the sixties it really made me realize the breadth of acting ability of Ross Martin. I had only seen him in roles of the comedic sidekick prior to this role. His believability as the evil commandant was astounding. This made the movie for me.
