The plot is less suspenseful than the overacting contest between the two leads, Laurence Olivier and Gregory Peck, who spend most of their screen time one-upping each other in affectations.

It's more a silly and unbelievable pic than a bad one, but very watchable.

Schaffner conduz a trama com segurança absoluta, permitindo que o espectador junte as peças do quebra-cabeças ao mesmo tempo em que seu diligente e improvável herói, vivido de forma espetacular por Olivier (mas Peck também merece aplausos).
| Original Score: 5/5
