Watching This Movie Was No Walk In The Sun
A US Army unit patrols in Italy during the war. Little do they know that one of them is a German spy, trying to assassinate an Italian partisan. But which one of them is it?
It's a dreadfully cheap movie, directed by Alex Nicoll, who also has a leading role. It was one of the movies he made in Europe before returning to America to direct the Tarzan TV show. The print I saw looked awful, which did the camerawork of first-time cinematographer Gastone Di Giovanni no favors. There's a narration at the beginning for the English-speaking audience who was unaware of the army being in Italy during the Second World War. It's credited to Paul Frees, who seems to be doing an imitation of William Conrad narrating the Rocky the Flying Squirrel cartoons.
Although it's an interesting idea for a movie, the execution is poor.
