The air invasion of Arnhem as depicted took place during the Operation Market Garden, an attempt to put a quick end of the war by taking all the bridges across the Rhine. The operation was the brain child of British Field Marshall Montgomery and was a much bigger action than it appears in the film. See more »

What a plot.
As someone working on creative and interesting plotting, I saw this intrigue movie as outstanding. I had to stay and watch just to find out who the 2-way spy was: was it Turner, was it Mature, oh my could it be Clark? I had no problem with the directing; I thought the last scene with Turner looking at Gable, searching his face for signs of hate or love was good.
I had a problem with the one word title, although it was relevant; it did seem to point to one character as the good guy, so it was misleading if that was the intent. (I don't think this is a spoiler, let me know).
I was glad the movie was in color; usually I prefer black and white on the older movies, however, the scenery et all was great in color.
