5 Fingers Reviews
Set during the Second World War, James Mason is very good as Ulysses DIello, the character which the movie is based on.
Joseph L Mankiewicz's direction is very good, as is the screenplay by Michael Wilson, and they both received Oscar nominations (Wilson won a Golden Globe for the script).
A gripping movie which is well worth viewing and the fact that this is based on true events makes the film very watchable from start to finish. It may be one of Mankiewicz's forgotten films but I consider it to be one of his very good ones and will still be one of Hollywood's finest directors. The dramatic moments keep you on the edge-of-your-seat and the script is well written.
e until it showed up again. Don't listen to anyone who gives it a rating of less than 100%, they're just being pickers of nit.
