Hollywood auteur Robert Aldrich helmed this suicide-mission tale predating The Dirty Dozen; Jack Palance, Jeff Chandler, and Wesley Addy are among German soldiers reunited just after WWII in a bomb-disposal unit that grimly accrues a “last man standing” payday even as romance with Martine Carol (Lola Montès) offers something to live for. Cinematographer Ernest Laszlo, reunited with Aldrich, maximizes the Berlin locations afforded by West German participation in the picture.
