    Its a very good come together of former would be enemies during WW II that band to commit a heist. Typical Frank Sinatra stance that dictated his later years as the tough guy leader with a hard body Virna Lisi keeping the spotlight moving. Imagine Oceans 11 type vehicle with a lesser known cast that's set at sea. Its a good flick, that has some twists and turns that oft it from being labeled as generic. It has Frank and he never disappoints if you understand the era angle he worked within. Just don't try to tie in modern day skin into a classic time period.

    "Assault On A Queen" (1966) is a fairly good caper about a motley group trying a heist of the Queen Mary in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean using a salvaged German U-boat. Frank Sinatra is Mark Brittain, fishing charter captain and former Navy sub commander who masterminds the heist, Virna Lisi is Rosa, an Italian beauty who becomes attracted to both Brittain and looking to make a fast buck Vic Rossiter, played by Tony Franciosa. Alf Kjellin is former U-boat commander Luffnauer, Richard Conte is Moreno, a dishonorably discharged former Navy man with shady dealings with Luffnauer, and Errol John rounds out the group as Brittain's partner Linc, a former British Navy radio operator. What starts out looking like the perfect crime is soon doomed by greed and mistrust among the six, and eventually fails when they're forced to leave the loot behind and attempt escape from the Coast Guard in the U-boat. Rossiter is killed on the Queen Mary, Moreno is killed by Luffnauer, who is also dies when the U-boat is rammed by the cutter, leaving Brittain, Linc and Rosa to head for South America in a rubber raft.Sinatra did another caper film, "Ocean's Eleven" in 1960, about a heist of millions of dollars from several Vegas casinos with his Rat Pack pals and Richard Conte. While that film had some elements of comedy, "Assault On A Queen" is stylish, totally dramatic and suspensful, owing to Rod Serling's excellent screenplay. I'd like to have this on DVD, and please show again soon TCM.and very suspensful, owing to Rod Serlings's excellent screenplay.Please show it again soon TCM. I'd also like to see it on DVD.
