This somewhat fictionalized film (read the true story) is nonetheless great WWII cinema with interesting characterizations by women and civilians. Stephen Boyd is wonderful as an Irish spy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Man Who Nevr Was is one of the best WWII films I've ever seen. Over the years I've become somewhat of a WWII film buff and this is definitely one of my favorites. Clifton Webb gave a fantastic performance, as did the rest of the cast. Each time I watch it I find something new. Because it is so well done, it's worth buying so you can see it more than once.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Forget about this movie being too slow, this true story does a marvelous job of providing a picture of what it's like to plan an elaborate charade to fool the Nazis Abwehr. Despite Lt. Commander Montagu's every precaution, his plan is threatened at almost every turn but Montague will stop at nothing to so that the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers can be saved. Add a marvelous scene where Gloria Graeme's character, after losing her RAF husband-to-be, dictates a letter from the girlfriend of the 'man who never was', that's worth the whole movie alone and a crafty, daring Nazi agent in Stephen Boyd and you've got a movie that you can watch several times and still enjoy it. By the way the Barnes and Noble review is wrong on two points: 1) The 'man who never was' was never exhumed, he died in a hospital and Montagu picked him up there; and 2) He was not the boyfriend of Gloria Grahame's character.Was this review helpful?
