Silent Raiders is a 1954 low budget American war film directed, starring and co-produced by Richard Bartlett. It was the first film of the L&B Production Company, consisting of Earle Lyon[1] and Richard Bartlett.[2]


Prior to the Dieppe Raid, seven US Army Rangers come ashore. Their mission is to destroy a German communications centre that controls the coastal guns that threaten the Canadian amphibious assault.


Produced for $27,000 with the working titles of Dieppe Raid and Three Miles to Dawn, it was filmed in Malibu, California in 1953.[3]

The producers were able to use composer Elmer Bernstein who was relegated to minor studios during the Hollywood blacklist period.
