Another "Where will the Allies invade" WW2 movie
24 May 2017 | by howardmorleySee all my reviews

I rated this movie with 6/10 which agreed with the communal IMDb.com rating when I checked.The title refers to how long it takes to die for a person who is caught spying after they have taken a cyanide suicide capsule.So we are in the realm of WW11 in 1944 when the allies had to trick the Germans into thinking the invasion would occur in Holland so that they kept important divisions tied up there.Nigel Patrick plays the British major and Jeffrey Hunter plays the American captain whose task is to sell this fiction to the Germans.In the mix comes AnneMarie Duringer, who being Swiss born had a believable accent and who plays a Dutch agent transported to London.Is she what she seems?

I must say that spy movies set in war time in this country (e.g."Night Train to Munich 1940) , seem to show that our country was over populated by Nazi agents.In fact very few German agents could survive for long in the paranoid state we lived under when any one that appeared different would attract suspicion from the public.I found the love scene between Jeffrey Hunter and Annemarie Duringer very contrived and unconvincing.Nigel Patrick was adequate.The reality of deceiving the Germans about when and where the invasion would happen was almost an industry with many more participants from the allies than this film suggested.
