THE CAPTIVE CITY (Joseph Anthony and Mario Chiari, 1962) **1/2
4 August 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This is an unusual WWII film involving a small group of mixed nationalities of both sexes (English, American, Egyptian, Greek) besieged in an Athens hotel by the raggedy but vast army commandeered by a rebel leader – all for possession of a Nazi arsenal secreted in the building's cellar. The plot is also interesting because it transpires that one of their number is a traitor – so that the film features elements of the thriller genre amid standard excitements and political/anti-war messages.

Being an international production, the film has the value of good casting – David Niven (in a role similar to the one he played in THE GUNS OF NAVARONE [1961]), Lea Massari, Ben Gazzara, Martin Balsam, Michael Craig (as the surprise villain), Daniela Rocca, Percy Herbert, etc. – while also suffering from the lumpiness typical of such ventures. It's still worth watching, however; unfortunately, the Italian TV reception throughout the broadcast was problematic as the image and audio kept going off intermittently! Incidentally, the film was cut down from the original 108-minute version to 87 minutes for the U.S., where it was also renamed THE CONQUERED CITY.
