With the benefit of hindsight it's very easy to criticise this movie, but I think it is foolish to completely dismiss it. Forgetting the fact that its script is laughable, plot thin, acting wooden and appreciation of communism astoundingly pathetic, this film is a historical gem which allows one an insight into the right wing U.S paranoia prevalent in the 1950's cold war era.
In 50 years time from now I expect the future generation will find some of our contemporary Hollywood films just as risible. We are all but a product of our time.
