DCP. Approx. 167 min.
American soldiers Clift and Dean Martin (in the film that helped re-launch his solo career) cross paths with conflicted Nazi lieutenant Marlon Brando, in “one of the all-time best WW2 studies” (Leonard Maltin), adapted by Edward Anhalt from Irwin Shaw’s 1948 novel. Three Oscar nominations.
“It's a kingsized credit to all concerned, from Edward Anhalt's skillful adaptation of Irwin Shaw's novel to Edward Dmytryk's realistic direction, and the highly competent portrayals of virtually everyone in the cast.” – Variety
