Did You Know?


Both star Roger Moore and director Peter R. Hunt had long associations with the James Bond movie franchise, the former starring as the character, and the latter as an editor and director of one of the movies, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), but Hunt never directed Moore when he was playing Bond.

Another Lee Marvin Masterpiece
20 April 2001 | by (Park Forest, IL) – See all my reviews

This guy seems to have been the most under-rated star in the Biz. His dry sense of humor combined with a subtle charisma made Lee Marvin one of the most likeable stars of the war movie genre. Here he played an older soldier, past his prime, that coaxes the younger Roger Moore into doing life-endangering things against the Germans. This is done with much humor, as Moore is in love with Marvin's daughter, and feels compelled out of family honor to do whatever he can. The action is really excellent, and the love story is touching. A must see for any war movie fan, and/or Moore fan. Marvin, himself, delivers another Marvin like performance, and reminds viewers of his earlier days from the film "The Dirty Dozen".
