I have seen this movie dozens of times and cannot tire of it. It is a classic! Robert Mitchum is a terrific actor and this movie fits him. I love all the older classic war movies, the actors of yesteryear will never be surpassed. This movie is a cat and mouse game which really maintains your attention. Surprisingly, a bit of human compassion is shown by Mr. Mitchum at the end, really putting a cap on this. It is exciting, well acted (Curt Jurgens is also great), and graphically rewarding.
The Bond women are pallid mannequins, and so is the misused Dalton -- a moving target in a Savile Row suit. For every plausible reason, he looks as bored in his second Bond film as Sean Connery did in his sixth.
