The film's marketing boasted the surname alliteration of Brando and Brynner. The Marlon Brando and "Yul Brynner" alliteration is another example in film history of promotional star-team name alliteration; see also: (Humphrey Bogart) "Bogie" and (Lauren) Bacall in four films, (Steve) McQueen and (Ali) McGraw in The Getaway (1972), and (Alec) Baldwin and (Kim) Bassinger in The Getaway (1994).

Gripping WWII film, very cool acting in tense situations
I enjoyed this film very much. Marlon Brando is in great form, if a little soft spoken. Handsom as ever. Yul Brynner is great also, though he is limited by the role. As "Pharoah", he was splendid. I will definitely watch this one again.
