"When the Allies were preparing to invade North Africa from the west, they sent a secret delegation to meet with the French generals controlling the landing areas. The purpose was to get the French to join the Allies against the Germans and to not resist the landings (this is the factual part).
This story revolves around a British agent with a photograph of the house where the meeting is to take place and the German efforts to obtain the picture so they can capture all the "traitors". I sort of liked the movie but it is a little hokey at times and the Germans were not as dumb as portrayed in the movie. The American woman "love interest" is sometimes annoying for her "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead" approach (the scene in the cafe where she is looking for the "spy" is downright ludicrous...for her stupidity... in the way she is looking for him. In real life it would have got her killed). Overall a good "Saturday Matinee" movie but don't expect an award winner. Price is a high for this movie, too. Quality is adequate but not "restored"."
