Our Score
In this epic Second World War drama, Robert Mitchum plays an American war correspondent covering the Allied forces' landing at Anzio Beach in Italy and their costly and bloody march on Rome. This is one of those war movies that poses thunderous moral questions at every turn and gives ordinary Joes statements rather than dialogue. It's a long haul, in every respect. Predictably, Mitchum and the odd cameo by the likes of Robert Ryan and Arthur Kennedy are the only things worth watching.

Summary

A strategic blunder by their commanding officer gives German forces time to reinforce the area, leaving the reporter caught up in one of the campaign's fiercest battles. Second World War drama, starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Falk, Arthur Kennedy, Robert Ryan and Earl Holliman.
