Mixed emotions are part of the relief and rescue.
You really have to be in the mood for this one. More like a grainy tapestry of newsreel and realism. Dramatic and at the same time remarkable visions of the ruins of war torn Berlin. This film evolves around the trials and tribulations of two Airmen during the great airlift and their romancing of German women. Montgomery Clift is sullen and wooden as Sgt. MacCullough. On the other hand, Paul Douglas makes an ass of himself as the arrogant Sgt. Kowalski. I enjoyed the photogenic locales more than the story line itself. Also in the cast are:Bruni Lobel, O.E. Hasse and the mystical Cornell Borchers. Writer and director George Seaton deserves kudos for presenting the harsh realism of post-WWII Berlin.
