In this ribald wartime sex-comedy set in 1944 Belgium, an exhausted major and his tiny unit drag into an Ardennes Forest castle for some much-needed rest. The aristocratic owner of Castle Keep has married his niece, but is unable to produce an heir. Much troubled by this, he pleads with the major to father one for him. Meanwhile, the soldiers have a few sexual romps of their own until the enemy launches an all-out attack on the Keep in an effort to steal the fabulous treasures therein.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Apparent efforts to insert a fresh side of war by concentrating on some of its grim humor act more as a deterrent than a booster to interest."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"There are some deliberate and successful moments of comedy that do not undercut the seriousness of the war, but effectively accommodate the more absurd moments."
‑ , Hollywood Reporter
"Pollack's folly remains an intriguing curio in spite of its pretensions."
‑ , Time Out
"The dialog is very salty, but the action spotty."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's a sometimes funny and entertaining movie that accomplishes the dubious feat of being both anti and pro war at the same time."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
