A CAVALCANTI PRODUCTION BASED ON A PRIESTLEY STORY, NO LESS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Foreman Went To France Fiddlers Three [DVD] (DVD)
That EALING production, directed by CHARLES FREND, was released in May 1942. It was released in America under the title SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE.
The propaganda was needed and it was based on a true story. It was not heavily handed.
TOMMY TRINDER and GORDON JACKSON(character named Jock, what else?), two soldiers help the British foreman to retrieve secret equipment, before the advancing german armies (we are in 1940) get it.
Their journey to the coast is hazardous and it has some humour, but it's still war.
The film is very well written and directed.
