Christopher Lee portrays the historical character Lieutenant Commander Richard "Dick" Prendergast Raikes, who was the commanding officer of the submarine HMS Tuna that launched the canoes during Operation Frankton in 1942. However, when introducing himself to Major Stringer (José Ferrer), he gives his name as "Graves" and is later addressed as "Allan" when he and Stringer are on first name basis. In the credits, he is simply listed as "submarine commander". See more »
As Cooley and Todd are getting into their canoe, the Germans appear. Cooley tells Todd to prime his "Little Nell" so they can make a run for it. Todd is already in the canoe and Cooley is half in. After cutting to the Germans, the camera quickly returns to Cooley and Todd who are now standing beside their canoe. See more »
This is an excellent movie that depicts a little known part of WWII history and well acted with a good story line. Jose Ferrar did an excellent job of acting and directing this movie and I am trying to locate a VHS (North American) Copy to add to my library.
