    Suspect this is going to be a really obvious one but I'm trying to place a WWII movie that ends on a beach with the lead character being told to be careful where he steps as they've not checked the whole area yet and he promptly walks off and steps on a landmine.

    Pretty sure it's a British film from the Fifties or early Sixties and a friend similarly unable to place it said he thought it starred John Mills, though I'm not sure about that. We both said it was one of the most sudden and shocking endings to a film we'd ever seen (as children/teenagers) - indeed I remember spilling the cup of tea I was drinking it was that unexpected!

      Spoiler:
    Pretty sure that's the ending of D Day Sixth of June with Toddy being careless where he strides, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049117/
