5 stars

Maybe the best peace movie ever made highlighted by soliloquies by Garner about war and love. Original footage spliced in ingenious ways to show the folly of the pursuit of war.

I find myself in a general malaise for lack of decent acting. Yes, 99% I want the cheesiest, most horrid celluloid monster I can find. But sometimes, I need fine acting and all together no special effects. This is a film that delivers on this. James Garner and co. put on an amazing performance. This was back in a time here acting was what was done sometimes. I miss it. Funny film. Funny plot. Great acting. I suggest it to anyone who likes older movies.

Hilarious movie. The situation these two put themselves into is incredibly funny. James Coburn is great.
