Michael Caine has a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance on stage with Dennis Price when the stage set is being position before the performance of Hamlet. He also appears later with a pin-up picture asking a bunk mate if he thinks she'll fit in the tunnel. See more »
In the final scene, when Capitano Benucci realized an escape is happening, he is seen running around the camp with his pistol in his hand. The pistol is an automatic, but when he shoots the "traitor" hidden behind the blanket, the closeup shows a revolver. See more »
Just watched it on Channel 4 and loved it, very good cast and overall very enjoyable.
Full of great actors including Richard Attenborough and Tony Todd A bit different from the usual escape movies, in that there's some intrigue and tension caused by a informer within the British ranks this results in the deaths of 4 British prisoners before they finally work out who it is.
I do like the 50/60 British films and this is another that i will definitely watch again.
