Fifty percent of the budget was provided by Lorimar. They fell out with United Artists, their distributor, before the film was delivered. Lorimar subsequently formed a new relationship with Paramount Pictures, but Producer Euan Lloyd thought that the studio regarded the film as "the poor cousin", and as a result, it "wasn't sold properly".

What a group of strange reviews. Granted, I am 69 but I just started watching tons of movies since retiring (we had no money growing up). Thank God for cable, especially TCM, AMC and the History Channel. (And to IMDb.com - the first favourite added to my desktop in 1994!)
The fact that this is based on a true story made all the difference. Yes, life was like that back then.
Re: Mr. Peck's accent - I've known plenty of Englishmen who sounded like that. What odd comments.
The locations were great - nice to see something authentic. And I agree, the clothing could have been a bit less modern. Finances were tight all over during WWII.
And to say these actors were past their prime! An actor is an actor is an actor - until physically or mentally impaired. (I've felt this way since high school so it is not just compassion for those now in my age group.)
All in all, a satisfying experience.
