Did You Know?

Goofs

The movie indicates that there were three BIGOTs participating in the operation Tiger, while in reality there were as much as ten. Aboard the landing craft the other soldier says that it is like the real thing, to which Kelso answers "yeah, except for the bombs and the gunfire, blood, random dead body..." They should've known that the exercise included live rounds and artillery to acclimatize troops to real battlefield conditions. In fact, the real landing included an incident where some of the troops landed too early and were hit by the artillery, losing hundreds of men to friendly fire - more than in the actual landing.

Too good to miss
15 March 2002 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

A most remarkable film. Made for TV and even though it is no longer available to buy, you can find it at your video store to rent. Here we have one of Peppards' finest performances. He may not have been the best actor of his day, but this role is perfect for Peppard. I have watched this film every few months since finding it a few years ago. Each viewing is as enjoyable as the first. Michael York puts in an average performance as Rommel, and Debra Raffin does okay. Peppard however carries the day. He plays an American Colonel working for the British OSE. (Operations Special Executive) I imagine this was the forerunner or wartime version of MI6 where James Bond works. Most of the film is set on the Channel Islands, occupied by the Germans for most of WW2. Our hero must extract or kill an American washed up there, who knows all the details of the D-Day landings, before the Germans interigate him. The movie doesn't even seem like three hours at all. The time goes fast and I can hardly wait to watch it again. Do yourself a favour and watch this most entertaining war drama.
