Storyline

In 1957, during Cyprus' war of independence against the occupying British forces, Juno, an American archeology student visiting Cyprus is caught between the two warring sides. After she witnesses an attack by local guerrillas against British soldiers she is questioned by the local British intelligence officer in charge, Major McGuire. However, one of the local guerrilla fighters, Haghios, is planning to kill Juno, in part because of Juno's witnessing the attack and in part because of her growing romantic relationship with Major McGuire.

Where can I get a video tape of this movies?

I have seen this movie back in the sixties, and this is one of my favorite top ten thriller. I rated it ten. Especially the character George Chakiris played in this film is so much different from all his other movies. Did anybody know where I can get a video tape of this movie. Please e-mail me if you know.

Thanks
