    While this is not a bad film (except for the execrable "4 For Texas," director Robert Aldrich never made a bad film) it's a few drachmas shy of being a good film. A.I. Bezzerides, usually a fine screenwriter, has several story problems. One is that we never see how Mitchum makes it from Athens to the Greek mountain village. Another is that the death of "Lefty," the female partisan who is more or less the conscience of the picture, occurs offscreen, so that it has no dramatic impact whatsoever. A third is that Sebastian Cabot's Communist guerrilla fighter does not appear until near the end, so that you might as well have not had him in the picture at all. And Aldrich, usually a master of violent action sequences, provides only one that stands out, the night time Nazi massacre of the village men. As for the performances, they range from ok (Mitchum at his least energetic and Sebastian Cabot badly imitating Sidney Greenstreet) to surprisingly good (Gia Scala bringing out the humanity of "Lefty") to excellent (Stanley Baker as the Gestapo with a conscience and Theodore Bikel as the collaborator without one) to horrible (Elizabeth Mueller, over acting.) Let's give it a generous C plus 'cause I looove Robert Aldrich. P.S. Stanley Baker's collaborator girlfriend and scumbag sibling of Bikel is well played by an extremely sexy English brunette named Jackie Lane. Must check out her other work.

    This was such good film. There were many suspense filled moments and portrays the difficult choices many had to face. This is a very worthwhile film.

    Watch it, this is a top drawer thriller. Filmed in Greece with lots of exotic scenery in an early WWII setting. Fine performances by the cast, especially by the two knockout female leads.
