This might not be the worst war movie ever made, but it's sure not far from it. It goes wrong right from the beginning with the theme music being sung by Jack Jones. The music and words sound like a bad Las Vegas stage show. Before the invasion of Anzio, the troops are engaged in a brawl with each other in an Italian Villa of maybe a hotel for no apparent reason. Peter Falk, who I normally enjoy, spends much of the time trying to teach women how to sing Bye-bye Blackbird. Again, for no apparent reason. On the whole, the movie seems to have no strong storyline. The movie was produced by Dino De Laurentiis, who has had hits and failures in his career. This was not one of his shining moments. I'll probably give my copy of the movie away to some thrift store where they'll sell it for a buck. Probably a fair price.

I thought this movie would be about the Battle it self rather than a story about a few men who get cutoff behind enemy lines. Robert Mitchum is a war correspondent, who seems to be allowed to have access to top secret information about the allied battle plans. Peter Falk is a soldier who seems more interested in teaching Italian women how to sing "Bye Bye Blackbird". The supporting actors do a good job. As a war movie its not bad. The battle action seemed realistic. The story is alright and is realistic. While trying to return to Anzio after driving to Rome, Mitchum and those with him observe German soldiers building defenses to protect themselves against the Allies. So these few soldiers make their way back to the Allied lines. They must fight their way through various bands of Nazi soldiers to return home. One refreshing part of the movie was there were no evil Nazi's who spoke bad German. If you like war movies you should like this one.

No, it's not historically accurate... and there was the weird choice of a soulless lounge singer song to start the movie, which was a big wtf? The lyrics were appropriate but the style... you'd think Eric Idle was the producer. But get past the inaccuracies, get past the lounge singer, and it turns into a very good move about people at war. If you're expecting to learn much about what happened at Anzio, you won't find it here. The movie is mostly fiction, but in that context it is a good movie.

I like Robert Mitchum, but this older film techniques don't age very well. The acting is fine, but the production values are
over the top in this old school war picture. There are much better ones from that time.

Enjoyed the movie. Thought there was too much singing of the song by Columbo, (Peter Falk) seems his personal story was more important than the theme. The theme of the stor was tops and very important to the victory in the Italian theater, and ultimately the war. To put such a huge emphasis on one mans mental problems was too much. It softened the affect of the movie.
