Downed British pilot in World War II gives disaffected French villagers a purpose in World War II.
Well-intentioned but not very good take on High Noon that seems padded even with a run-time of less than an hour. Much of the dialogue consists of slowly explaining the obvious, as if to a group of dull children. One would expect better from an experienced director like Tully and a script from Brian Clemens. Cast is game, at least, especially Maitland, but the film just can't support the weight of the plot, and relies too heavily on the stereotype of all Frenchmen as cowards.
