Trivia

Major Hecker mentioned that Erich Berger used to be a cabaret performer. Michael York (Erich Berger / Erwin Rommel) starred in the movie Cabaret (1972). See more »

Goofs

The plane used in the flight to France is a postwar civilian model and certainly not the Westland Lysander that was used for the trip in the original book. See more »

Acceptable war film, with an aging star
6 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just watched this courtesy of Youtube. Not a bad copy, though the last third or so had poor lip sync.

The main problem was that Harry Martineau was meant to be 44 (give or take a year) and George Peppard was 62 in 1990, flabby, showing the signs of heavy drinking and soon to be diagnosed with lung cancer.(He was a sixty-a-day smoker and is seen smoking a lot during NOTF.) So hardly an action man, and he had trouble scrambling over a low wall. (It must have been a stunt double shinning up the drainpipe.) Even in the role of a poule de luxe, Sara appeared flamboyantly over-dressed, and I wondered where her several elaborate outfits had come from after the boat on which she was travelling to Jersey sunk; surely not from shops on the island itself, which in 1944 was suffering acute austerity.

The supporting cast all performed well and there was good period atmosphere.
