An American POW leads a group mainly British prisoners to escape from the Germans in WWII.
1966 | Nominee: Best Effects, Sound Effects
William H. Daniels cinematography in scope is very hard to resist, especially when it frames a pretty implausible story with a compelling Sinatra and an end without compromise.
A consistently thrilling WW2 yarn with Frank Sinatra on great form; the finale in the tunnel is excellent, and all the better for its unexpected, downbeat turn.
This is a good movie to watch on a weekend afternoon.
