Secret Agent Col. Harry Martineau is sent to find a captured US servicemen who holds the secrets to the D-Day landings


At 83, John Mills is perhaps a little old to be serving in the British Army. Still, that doesn’t stop him sending secret agent George Peppard off to Jersey to sort out the problem of a captured American officer who knows all the secrets of the impending D-Day landings. Michael York is both Rommel and his Jewish lookalike impersonator. Deborah Raffin (with terrible English accent) provides the glamour, while the plot seems to be a combination of I Was Monty’s Double and Appointment With Venus. If Jack Higgins’ source novel is as bad as this TV movie version of it, he deserves to be paid in bus tickets.

Don't even think about it.
