Synopsis

War adventures don't come any better than this cracking adaptation of Alistair MacLean's WWII-set bestseller. Chiselled American officer Gregory Peck leads a team of Allied commandos on a crucial mission to destroy two Nazi superguns off the Greek coast. The other thorns in Jerry's side include explosives wiz David Niven, freedom fighter Anthony Quinn and steely assassin Stanley Baker. Put down that copy of Bravo Two Zero and enjoy the sort of boys-own heroics that rank up there with Zulu and The Great Escape.
