Did You Know?


The "Heroes" use a hand powered air pump to fill the balloon, however, the pump is inside the balloon so it would not inflate the balloon but merely circulate the air that is already inside. To inflate the balloon the pump should have been outside the balloon to draw in more air. See more »

A funny script for such a far-fetched plot.
21 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a British spy steals some secret maps and documents, he makes his way to Stalag 13 so that he can return to London with the papers. The problem is that he has brought half of the Gestop with him. It will be difficult to get the spy out of the camp and back with the critical information the Allies need.

With all the roads and woods heavy guarded, Hogan will have to come up with a way of getting the spy out of camp. He comes up with the idea of a hot air balloon. But with the camp under Gestapo control , he will have to do the work right under their nose. Hogan comes up with some inventive ways of getting the job done.

Even though the idea of getting a man from the camp to near the coast in a balloon is far-fetched, the scenes leading up to the escape are quite funny. There is some nicely written jokes along the way that makes this otherwise fantasy plot entertaining. Good watch.
