| So This Was Why Market-Garden Failed?
Clark Gable and Lana Turner made their fourth and final film together in Betrayed which also was Gable's final film for MGM where he reigned as king for 24 years. Also along for the ride in this World War II story is Victor Mature.

Gable is a member of the Dutch army in exile which is part of the overall allied army that will shortly be invading cross channel. Turner is an agent that he has recruited of whose loyalties he has some qualms about and Mature is a reckless Dutch resistance leader.

One of these three is a traitor, a person responsible for several failed missions of the resistance. Even more important the traitor leaked information to the Germans about Field Marshal Montgomery's Operation Market Garden which got the British Army hung up in Arnhem. Who could it be?

For a more accurate picture of that operation, I would strongly urge you to watch A Bridge Too Far. In that film you will see none of the events or characters that are shown in Betrayed.

This was Gable's last film at MGM, Dore Schary was cutting loose from a lot of the stalwart contract players that kept Leo the Lion on top of the heap for 20 years. Gable looks like he's just going through the motions and the cast follows suit.

Turner is somewhat interesting as the femme fatale of ambiguous loyalties. Mature looks as bored as Gable, though he does try to invest his part with some of that heavy lidded beefcake charm he was known for.

Not the best work for any of the stars involved.
