It must have been frustrating for the makers of this WWII Rhineland stand-off flick. There you are, with a good (and reasonably historically accurate) script, some fine prop and effects work, and George Segal and Robert Vaughan heading up the allied and axis teams respectively among a smart cast, and what do people remember your thoroughly decent film for, if at all? An unfortunate continuity error involving the same fat Nazi infantryman walking past in the background over and over again. Dickie Attenborough never had this trouble.
