Anna Neagle's heroic officer gives the ladies a look in for the war films

The majority of ’50s British war movies revolve around male officers but, like Carve Her Name With Pride, Odette puts a female agent in the frontline.

Anna Neagle parachutes into occupied France, only to be captured, tortured and sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp.

Unimaginatively directed by Herbert Wilcox, this predictable tribute to stiff upper lip heroism is partially enlivened by Marius Goring as a suave German officer.
