Intended as a cinematic tribute to the island that was awarded the George Cross for its courage during the Second World War, this is a remarkably restrained drama in comparison to the other accounts of wartime heroics produced by the British film industry in the decade after VE Day. Blending romance and intrigue with convincing combat sequences, director Brian Desmond Hurst presents a moving human story without slipping into melodrama. Alec Guinness is perhaps overly subdued as the aerial photographer scouring the Mediterranean for enemy activity, but Flora Robson is superb as the mother whose children experience the sharply contrasting fortunes of war.
