Newly Re-mastered in HD! In Ten Seconds Thousands Will Be Blown to Hell! From Robert Aldrich, the legendary director of The Dirty Dozen and Too Late the Hero, comes another WWII classic. Jeff Chandler (Merrill's Marauders) and Jack Palance (Attack) co-star as German demolition experts Karl Wirtz and Eric Koetner. Returning to bombed-out Berlin the two men accept the very dangerous, but high paying job of defusing unexploded Allied bombs scattered throughout the city. The two men and other members of the bomb squad soon agree to a macabre pact donating half their paychecks into a pool that in three months would be split evenly between the survivors... as Karl and Eric vie for the affections of Margot Hofer (Martine Carol, Lola Montès), adding to the growing tension between the two men. Aldrich pays meticulous attention to the details of bomb deactivation and Ernest Lazlo's (Stalag 17) crisp monochrome camerawork a dark and grim version of the German capital.
