Well Done WWII story with American Robert Stack fighting for England
17 December 2019 | by mooreesecdSee all my reviews

Entertaining characters and situations make the narrative compelling. Stack gives another great performance. Diana Barrymore fine in her role. John Loder , Leif Ericson and Eddie Albert give good supporting performances. Recommended for anyone who likes films about WWII.
