Storyline

American officer Strobel, a former actor, and Nobel Prizewinner Professor Aubernet operate behind German lines in Normandy disguised as German officers. Their mission is to disable an intricate system of flame-generating beach defenses prior to the Allied invasion of France. As D-Day approaches, American paratroopers led by Captain Jack Murphy are inadvertently dropped prematurely near the control site for the defenses. Murphy's handful of men team up with Strobel and local Resistance fighter Denise to infiltrate and destroy the German defenses in time for the Allied landings.

Guy Madison in Italian!
30 April 2007 | by Desiree1954See all my reviews

Poor Guy Madison was reduced to picking up "coffee and dough-nut" money making second rate Itailian stinkers during the 1960s and early 1970s. I saw this film in Italy and it was the non-dubbed version. Surpringly, I thought Guy came across very well dubbed in! I'm joking! Seriously, Guy looked stiff and unhappy here. He plays a Captain in the U.S. Army who leads a group of doomed paratroopers on a "deadly" mission. Nothing much to the whole thing. Nice uniforms, some stock black and white film on World War II, a bit of action, and really nothing else. If you look hard enough, you can find "cult" actor William Conroy playing a German soldier in yet another of his countless uncredited roles in Italian made 1960s films.
