Never in the history of wallywood film has there been a more inaccurate portrayal of the truth and the facts as they took place. Don't bother with this film,
After the release of 633 Squadron (1964), which proved to a surprise success, producer Walter Mirisch ordered a series of low-budget war films to be made in the UK, but that would have at least one American star in it, and would usually be one half of a double bill feature. This one was partially inspired by the St. Nazaire Raid, although the film does take some liberties with the truth. Canadian Commando Major Jamie Wilson (Lloyd Bridges) has masterminded a Combined Operations raid on the Axis held French port of Le Clare, which if successful, would strip the Nazi's of the only dry dock accessable to service their battleships. Royal Navy Captain Owen Franklin (Andrew Keir) is opposed to the idea, but with no other ideas to hand, the Royal Navy, under duress from Churchill, have no option but to go with Wilson's plan. However, the commando's are given limited resources, battered old boats that have seen better days, and Franklin has to go along with Wilson on the mission, which puts the two at complete loggerheads. It should have been a good film, but it's low budget works against it, and it ends up all being done at night, maybe to hide a multitude of sins. Bridges overacts badly, (you can see why he was cast in Airplane! (1980)), plus when released, this was on a double bill with Yellow Submarine (1968), God knows why.
ok WWIII post WWII movie
Had not seen this before. Not a bad story.
Not too sure if this is all true or not, but oh well, this war story with Lloyd Bridges as a Canadian Major fighting with the Brits to pull of a crazy scheme of ramming a boat into a German port and then blowing it up has no business being as entertaining as it is, as it provides the well-worn story of a bunch of people on a boat fighting on the nazis with a bit of heart, with Lloyd Bridges leading the way. Predictable sure, but still a good watch.
war stories were best portrayed in 60's nd 70's.. courage beyond the call of duty can never be matched in the real life stories
Bridges fails to put the umph into his charasmatic character that other actors would have. The film also suffers at the beginning from identity, whether it wants to be a drama or action, but overall, as a war mission story it works.
true story of commando raid on uboat dry dock at St Nazaire,..they ramed the dry dock with an old destroyer full of explosives then took on huge amount of enemy,...my grandad was on this raid.
didnt like this one...... nope thats for sure
ATTACK ON THE IRON COAST (1968)
