Movie Info

As the British military prepares to invade Sicily during World War II, intelligence agent Ewen Montagu (Clifton Webb) hatches a cunning plan to fool Germany into believing the Allies' true target is Greece. Concocting a fictitious British officer named Maj. William Martin, Montagu gathers false top-secret documents and personal letters to plant upon a corpse that will wash ashore in Spain. But the investigations of a German undercover agent (Stephen Boyd) could potentially expose the fraud.

Audience Reviews for The Man Who Never Was

    I have to wonder if casting directors of this era intuitively sought out Gloria Grahame whenever a script called for a 'promiscuous' or 'unbridled' sort?

    routine stuff for 2 thirds of the picture which can probably be blamed on the true story factor. the planning and stransport of a body. non stop thrill ride.... anyway, it did get a bit more interesting towards the last third when a german spy became involved but there was still nothing to take it to any dizzy heights of enjoyablility. on the other hand it does give ya a bit of a history lesson which comes in handy if ya want some knowledge of how we invaded sicily easier than first would've been able
