There's some great footage of all these Germans going berserk and grabbing the grenades while the women run around screaming. Now you might ask why not pull the pin on one grenade and lob it down the airshaft?
The explosion would clear away the Germans near the shaft, and then you could drop in more grenades without any trouble. Naw, too simple. Instead, they pour gallons of gasoline down the airshaft and THEN toss in a grenade. I don't know how they did it but they got lots of keen shots of all those people hopping around burning to death. Chicago hasn't had enough of this lately. In " Africa Addio " there was a pile of dead bodies burned, to be sure, but they were dead to begin with. In " The Naked Prey ," a guy was tied up and covered with clay and baked over a fire, but you knew it was only a dummy inside the clay.
But real live people burning to death!
Take my word for it, it was such a delightfully sadistic, brutal, inhuman scene that I'm glad the Chicago Police Censor Board forgot about that part of the local censorship law where it says films shall not depict the burning of the human body. If you have to censor, stick to censoring sex, I say. Censor out Hayley Mills' bare bottom, because the human body is evil and it's a sin to look at it. But leave in the mutilation, leave in the sadism, and by all means leave in the human beings burning to death. It's not obscene as long as they burn to death with their clothes on.
