  • St Nazaire raid, Hollywood style

    • Patrick
    • 4/30/13

    This is a very entertaining World War II actioner clearly based on the famous British commando raid on the French port of St Nazaire in March 1942. The purpose of the actual raid was to deny the Germans the use of the large dry dock in the port. Being Hollywood, somebody decided to mix the Canadians in - presumably because of the Canadian raid on the French town of Dieppe in August 1942. So, this war film script combines elements of both the Dieppe and St Nazaire raids although clearly the main plot is based on the real St. Nazaire raid.Lloyd Bridges is the main star of the film as the overall commander of the raid. His nemesis in the film is Andrew Keir, a Royal Navy officer reluctantly forced to participate in the raid. Keir's character blames Lloyd Bridge's character for the death of Keir's son in an earlier raid on the French coast - the earlier raid clearly being a fictionalized account of Dieppe. Since the story is the St. Nazaire raid, one of the most highly decorated battles in British military history (5 Victoria Cross awards) it goes without saying there is good action in this film. There clearly was not a big budget for this movie and it shows at times - however the basics of the story are real and that sustains the movie for me. For anyone interested in the St Nazaire raid of WW II I recommend watching this "B" movie. The movie is better than the title.
