In this exhilarating adventure five POWs in Nazi Germany fight their way back to freedom...
Errol Flynn plays a downed RAF pilot making his journey through enemy territory disguised as a German officer... In addition to evading capture he manages with his crew, a Scottish veteran of World War I, Alan Hale; a Canadian navigator, Arthur Kennedy; an American Ronald Reagan and a young Englishman Ronald Sinclair, to blow up a secret chemical plant and steal a German bomber from a Messerschmitt factory...
The film (with exciting music by Max Steiner) ends with Flynn leading an RAF assault on the airplane factory after various acts of sabotage & violent conflict, aided and inspired by an anti-Nazi German family headed by a pleasant doctor (Albert Basserman) & his sweet daughter (Nancy Coleman).
The best scene comes early in the picture, when a Nazi Major (Raymond Massey) after having questioned the captured RAF crew, calls for a private interview with Reagan, thinking he will agree to reveal what he knows about the new RAF bomber engines, and recites easily an impressive number of facts about the component parts--all nonsense... Once he has the major's rapt attention, he punches him on the jaw, knocking him out and then help himself to the major's breakfast...
