A facinating story by Grahame Green is given all star-treatment. ElizabethTaylor may be no Meryl Streep when in comes to foreign accents, but I still find myself missing her, when she is not there. Paul Ford and Lilian Gish really deserves the acting honors here.
A good film, although my perception of the book was different. To my mind Alec Guiness was certainly not the right choice for the part of Major Jones. Anyway, to my mind the book is certainly better than the film.
