Our Score
This routine Second World War drama finds the normally reliable Dirk Bogarde slightly off-form as a pilot grounded on doctor's orders. His determination to continue flying is deflected momentarily by his love for naval intelligence widow Dinah Sheridan and the disappearance of comrade Bryan Forbes after he's caught tinkering with a code machine. It's all pretty much as you'd expect, but a little more insight into the lives of the air crews would have filled in the gaps left by the absence of flag-waving propaganda.


Over the course of one month in 1943, an intense rivalry develops between an overworked wing commander and an American officer - but the two try to put aside personal feelings for the sake of the war effort. Second World War drama, starring Dirk Bogarde, Bryan Forbes, Dinah Sheridan and William Sylvester.
