Coburn is Phenomenal
13 June 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

Masquerade is an excellent story of German infiltration behind American lines. James Coburn puts on a spectacular performance as Corporal Arnold Kanger; he's smooth as silk in his role as an infiltrator out to conquer American Battalion Headquarters. If he succeeds, the sky is the limit as to the damage he can cause the Americans. Coburn qualifies his slickness in that he spent 10 years in the US prior to WW 2.

After driving over a land mine, Kanger's plans are sidetracked as his German Colonel POW is severely injured and must remain in the care of Lt. Hanley's squad. During this time small inconsistencies begin to surface and peak Sgt. Saunders' curiosity. Lt. David Comstock (played by Dan Stafford) seems less than convincing in his infiltrator role.

I really felt sorry for the ambulance driver as he is just an ordinary guy.

You couldn't ask for a better ending sequence between 2 top rate actors.

It should also be noted Rocky Marciano makes his one line film debut. It's hard to imagine he was heavyweight champion of the world just 7 years earlier.
