    Good script, great cast. Even Lana Turner did better than she usually did. Not up to the quality of the rest of the cast, but a decent job. I was so relieved that they didn't try any ridiculous, hackneyed Hollywood-style German accents. This story was told primarily from the side of the Germans (VERY rare in WWII movies), so they would have sounded to each other as we would to each other. Compare this, for example, to the wonderful "The Eagle Has Landed". Would you have wanted John Wayne, Claude Akins, etcetera to sound as ridiculous as poor Robert Duval had to for that otherwise excellent film? I liked the attention to detail, from a technical standpoint. Though the captain of that poor old worn-out ship obviously kept it looking as professional as possible, you could see patch plates all over the old scow. Good stuff.

  • Good movie except for Lana Turner

    This is one of many movies of the period in which Lana Turner was miscast. Her scenes are boring, as usual, and she overacts the hurt female, as usual. John Wayne and the rest of the cast carry the movie in spite of Turner. This is a good story and the movie would have been better if all the Turner scenes were removed or she was replaced by a decent actress.

    This is the kind of movie that Duke haters (a large club of which I'm proud not to be a member) cite as evidence to prove that the guy is a crappy actor. And while I do not share that sentiment I can understand their annoyance in this instance. I mean, after all, an actor does have certain minimal obligations. Like not sounding like the Ringo Kid when playing a German sea captain!

    I tried playing the end of the movie a second time and this time it played all the way to the end. The ending was ambiguous but interesting. Now I'm going to give it a five. It was fun watching John Wayne play something other than a Western.

  • The ending

    The movie ended abruptly when the British ship fired on the Ergenstrasse after the Imperial Flag was raised. I think the last few minutes must have been deleted from the movie. I give it four stars and would have given it five except for the (edited?) cropped off abrupt ending.

  • Lana Turner

    Any movie with Lana Turner is good!
