The Red Beret (Paratrooper)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Has some points of interest, not least a good dollop of old reliables like Andrews, Baker, Genn, Houston and Diffring. And for Bond fans, the great Terence Young cuts his teeth and even Walter Gotell gets a pay packet. The film is endearingly old-fashioned and stilted particularly the romance between Ladd and Susan Stephen (who went on to marry Nic Roeg). The climax is set in North Africa but clearly the budget had run out as it looks like the Scottish moors or the hills of Wicklow. Once is more than enough.
