CGiii Comment

In his illustrious career, Zinnemann won 4 Oscars. He certainly knows how to tell a story.............and, in this case, he tells it very slowly indeed.

20 minutes could have been easily cut without making a dent. As a film with an ending that everyone knows before they have even pressed play...it had better be a gripping tale..............and, sadly, it's not.

The gay bit comes near the end in a Turkish bath, no less.....you can guess the rest.

Dated and dull.
