The Man Who Never Was is a 1956 British espionage thriller film based on a true story.
It is a gripping World War II picture that has no combat scenes, no great vistas of troops. The time is 1943, as the Allies prepare the invasion of Sicily and desperately need a diversionary ploy to make the Germans suspect another invasion target. The solution is simple but ingenious: a dead man's body will be left in the sea to float ashore on the coast of Spain; made to look like a British pilot, he will be carrying papers suggesting an Allied attack on Greece.
When the papers fall to the Nazis, they'll swallow the bogus story- or will they?
Clifton Webb gives a crisp, disciplined performance as Ewen Montagu, the officer in charge of the scheme. The film's final haunting shots capture the ethereal shiver of its title.
