The Girl and the General Reviews

Steiger is a one-armed general in the Italian Army who is captured by the incompetent Orsini. After a short time, Steiger escapes. He and Lisi lock Orsini in a railroad car. The pair stay in an abandoned farmhouse where Steiger nurses a lame leg. Ragged and hungry, Lisi shows some soldiers a little skin in return for some food. Eventually they meet Orsini, who has come to like Steiger and Lisi. A minefield, however, takes the lives of the general's companions. Fed up with the war and the pain it brings, Steiger turns himself in to the Austrian authorities. Also released at 113 minutes.
