Mary EllisonMary Ellison is perhaps the most important person of the team. Her mission is to get inside the castle incognito, and make it possible for the others to get in as well. This means a lot of suffering for her, nevertheless because she mostly has to make it alone in the cold wheather of the Bavarian alps. But she is a tough woman and she has got quite a will of her own. Her only weakness is her love to Major Smith - she would do anything for him. Which, of course, comes in handy as the operation carries on. Facts

Mary Ellison is from somewhere in England, perhaps from Wales as Smith. She is an agent and a spy in the Brittish Secret Service. Mary was one of the few agents that vice admiral Rolland had confidence in, and so she was brought back from Italy, together with Smith, in favor for this mission. Comments
Mary Ellison is one of the best characters in this film. This is the only film, as far as we know, where a woman uses an automatic gun without looking confused. She is a strong woman with a great will and great self confidence. If Smith behaves shabbily to her she doesn't care, she believes in herself.
Major John Smith: Take your clothes off.
Mary Ellison: But I...
Major John Smith: Don't argue. Take. Your. Clothes off.
[Smith starts kissing Mary. Mary agrees.]
Major John Smith: Relax. I didn't mean it that way. You're going up to the castle tonight as... well... yes as a domestic.
Mary Ellison: How? Naked?
Major John Smith: Not a bad idea, but a bit too obvious.
[Smith steps into the stable. He hears the click of a gun.]
Mary Ellison: Halt! Turn around...
[Smith turns around, slowly. Mary recognizes him.]
Mary Ellison: You took your time getting here, didn't you?
