Storyline

Three American prisoners - including Carrington - are brought in to join lone countryman Phipps. However they are given preferential treatment and access to American newspapers, a deliberate ploy to make the British believe that they are spying for the Germans. Preston learns from the senior American, Colonel Dodd, that the trio are on a secret mission to make contact with the Hungarian free government, but they realise that they are under surveillance for information and must thwart the eavesdropper.

Goofs

The two vehicles that the Hungarian soldiers arrive in are unlikely to be used by the Hungarian army. The first is a Russian GAZ 67, which might possibly have ben captured on the Russian front. The second is a post-war West German DKW Munga (Mehrzweck UNiversal Geländewagen mit Allradantrieb", which translated means, "Multi purpose Universal Cross-country Car with All-wheel drive"), production of which started in 1956.
