One of a rash of WWII escape stories from the fifties, this is the classic tale of stiffer upper lips headed by the ever reliable John Mills. It lacks the drama of Bridge Over The River Kwai and the action of The Great Escape, but it has a simple honesty that is probably the product of it's roots as an adaptation of true life memoirs. It's also is happy to give screen time to the French, Dutch and Polish prisoners (something Hollywood would've been well served to take note of) and is even not entirely unsympathetic towards the German captors. A solid escape story all round.
