Five Branded Women is a 1960 Italian-American international co-production film directed by Martin Ritt and produced by Dino De Laurentiis. It featured an international cast including Silvana Mangano, Barbara Bel Geddes, Jeanne Moreau and Vera Miles and was Ritt's only war movie, set during the Nazi occupation of Yugoslavia. Yugoslav partisans grimly crop the hair of a village quintet of women believed to have consorted with the occupational Nazis. Four, for various reasons, have indeed - and their seducer is a lone, swaggering German sergeant whom the partisans briskly emasculate. The forlorn ladies link up, patriotically and romantically, with a band of tough mountain guerrilla fighters.
