This cleverly orchestrated espionage/war drama (with a patriotic coda befitting its year of production, 1943) is enhanced by subtle touches of humour, all emanating from character, which makes it a triple joy as a classic from Billy Wilder

Wilder's work is known for its bitter cynicism and able balancing of absurdity with dead seriousness, but this film, while enjoyable, shows an uncertainty of tone.

Billy Wilder's Oscar-nominated espionage thriller, a fictitious account of how Rommel was foiled by the Brits, is entertaining in large measure due to Erich von Stroheim's performance

Wilder's second film in America is a Second World War espionage drama that is both witty and tense.
