The trouble, as so often with Ritt films, is that the situation remains interesting rather than involving. But at least this detachment means that one has the leisure to savour the textures of Wong Howe's magnificent camerawork.

Realism without much reality, enormous care for the wrong details, historical accuracy and spineless dramaturgy.

What it does have, however, are powerful performances from Connery as a labour leader, and Harris as a government agent sent to infiltrate the group. There is also good photography by Howe.
