It gotta be a sign of getting older but I search myself watching old movies more and more now. Sky showed this movie recently, and I much preferred it to some of the modern blockbusters they show. Virgina McKenna does an perfect job of portraying Violetta Szabo. Nice old Jack Warner (Sergeant Dixon!) is perfect as the long suffering father. Paul Scofield is brilliant testing the part of Tony. It was directed by Lewis Gilbert, who also directed "Alfie" and "Educating Rita". It brings home the suffering normal folks went through, as well as heroines like Violetta. I defy anyone not to be moved by the ending. Hopefully it is accessible on DVD actually as it belongs in anyone`s collection.
I was much affected by this movie, when I saw it 40 years ago. Recently reading Leo Marks book, it came back to me. Violette Szabo died in Ravensbrueck, shot in the back of the head, holding hands with a friend. The film should not quite bring itself to say us that. But it came close. I think that of all the films I saw in my youth, this grabbed the heart closest. It has a fine understatement, without which the enormity of fight would be difficult to grasp.
Virginia McKenna has long been an idol of mine, and this movie is one of the basic reasons. I think she is one of the overlooked nice actresses of the '50's and 60's. At any rate, this is an extraordinary movie in so many ways. I love nice biographical pictures in general, but this is one of the most poignant and accurate ever done. The remarkable storyline of Violette Szabo could be seen by all. Paul Scofield is brilliant as well. This merits a excellent score. Don't miss it!
