True story of a British attempt to trick the enemy into weakening Sicily's defenses before the 1943 attack, using a dead man with faked papers.
Ian Fleming is said to be the author of this operation. The op was detailed, and Fleming was given credit in Fleming (2014).
Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
I can assure you that this is an opportunity for your son to do a great thing for England.
The Father: My son, sir, was a Scotsman. Very proud of it.
Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu: I beg your pardon.
The Father: Never mind. We're used to that. You English always talk about England when you mean Britain.
In the scene where Montagu receives a telephone call from Gen. Nye summoning him to 10 Downing Street, there is a calendar in the background that reads Friday, April 12. In 1943, when this movie takes place, April 12 fell on a Monday.
Military security and respect for a solemn promise have made it necessary to disguise the identity of some of the characters in this film; but in all other essentials this is the true story of "Major William Martin"
