Director Robert Aldrich was very dismissive of his own film in later years, once referring to it as "a terrible film, a joke"; he said there had not been enough time to develop the screenplay properly, although he also pointed out that, at least, his screenwriter, A.I. Bezzerides, was a man of Greek ancestry who knew the country and its history and traditions, whereas Leon Uris, the author of the original novel, had never even been there. See more »
Always liked Robert Mitchum in most of his films and for some reason did not view this late 1950's film. This film is suppose to take place in Greece during the year 1941 and is occupied by the lunatic Nazi forces. Robert Mitchum,(Mike Morrison), is an Army officer who manages to somehow get involved with some very secret information that can help the underground forces in Greece to destroy the Nazi strong holds during WWII. Mike Morrison meets up with a Greek gal and becomes romantically involved with her along with an other young gal who is very confused about what to do with her children. It is rather long and drawn out and at the same time, Robert Mitchum seemed very bored with his role and gave very little enthusiasm. The film wound up being very boring and way too long. The Nazi officer in charge was always sick and complained about not having a PULSE !
