    Secret Mission, 1942 - Hugh Williams, James Mason, Roland Culver and Herbert Lom in a completely bonkers French resistance yarn. Highly recommended

    I watched these two, always good to see them again.

    Sadly I then stayed around for the third in their triple bill which was Anzio (1968) with Bob Mitchum & Peter Falk.

    As US Rangers the participants give a good impersonation of actors pretending to be soldiers, and not pretending very well. They make just about every military mistake it is possible to make, and then add in a few others for good measure. Almost every character is a stereotype, almost everything they say is a clich�.

    In the "haystack ambush", a lot of these highly trained troops think that the best way to attack a machine gun nest is by frontal assault, running up-hill towards the guns. They don't just do it once. After seeing a lot of their comrades getting mown down, others think that it looks like a good idea and do the same thing. But I suppose it gets them out of the film early on

    There's probably a good film that could be made about the Anzio landings and the subsequent push for Rome, but this certainly wasn't it

    You can use this excellent site to check all Freeview listings. One rarity coming up is Valley of Eagles in which Jack Warner plays a proto-Wallander, tracking a crook through reindeer country
