The Enemy General is a 1960 American drama war film directed by George Sherman and starring Van Johnson.[1][2]

The film was shot on location in Europe.[2]


The setting is World War II. An Office of Strategic Services agent, working with the French underground, ambushes a Nazi convoy with a high-ranking general, who escape. Later they take him from a Nazi prison and smuggle him to England.



A novelization of the screenplay was issued by Monarch Books in May, 1960—about two months in advance of the film's release (as was often customary of the era). The by-line was given as Dan Pepper & Max Gareth. Both names were pseudonyms. "Dan Pepper," also credited as co-screenwriter, was a joint pseudonym for Lou Morheim (who would become a noted screenwriter and producer under his own name) and American novelist Stuart James. This somewhat convoluted construction would seem to suggest that Moreheim and James collaborated on a first version of the screenplay and that James did the actual novelizing of that version. ("Max Gareth" was a pseudonym for James as sole author, that he also employed for two original novels that year. James' own byline as sole author also appeared that year and would in future on six more original novels and three additional novelizations.) Add to this that screenwriting attribution on the screenplay suggests further that co-screenwriter Bert Picard—because he is linked to "Pepper" with "and" rather than the collaborative symbol ampersand (&)—was brought on to do rewrites and did not directly collaborate with Moreheim and James.
