    The script, based on Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski's play, doesn't quite leave its stage origins behind, and at times there is an insularity to the action that isn't all about prison-camp realism... Still the ensemble acting is very fine, even with Otto Preminger stealing scenes as the sarcastic camp commandant; the thriller elements grip; and the ending leaves the nagging unease that is as close as Wilder got to a trademark.
