Review

Our Score
As a cinema actor, Lloyd Bridges never really gained major star status, but his television appearances, especially in the long-running TV series Sea Hunt, made his face familiar to millions. He is a useful presence in this generally uninvolving Second World War action adventure. The film was shot in England, and a supporting cast of British TV names such as Mark Eden and Andrew Keir does what is expected of it, but the overall style is curiously flat considering the director is Paul Wendkos, established since the mid-1950s yet obviously slumming with this material.

Summary

A Canadian major leads a commando attack against a German naval base on the French coast. However, his troubled past and conflict with a fellow officer place the operation in jeopardy, leaving them battling to put their personal problems aside and focus on survival. Second World War drama, starring Lloyd Bridges, Andrew Keir, Sue Lloyd and Mark Eden.
