This is a great Movie. A very, very good Movie. A very, very interesting Movie. But it also shows how PEOPLE are USED to fit a CAUSE. And how Foreign Governments just don’t get it. When they want their Independence, LOOK OUT. So, it’s time to pop some Popcorn and Enjoy!

He enjoys a quiet existence with his Malayan girlfriend, Dhana (Capucine), although a politician’s daughter named Candace (Susannah York) also fancies him. Soon, Ferris encounters a man named Ng (Tetsuro Tamba), who served with him during the war and is now a communist committed to revolution for the guerillas.
