Nazi wallpaper in the summer house
24 November 2009 | by chadclay720See all my reviews

I still recall the swastika wallpaper in the summer house outside of Munich. The swastika wallpaper was common in Germany during 1933-45. I was surprised to see it in the movie! I guess they were really shooting on location in Munich. World War II had only been over for 25 years at that point, but whenever I see this movie, I still notice that crazy Nazi wallpaper. Not a bad movie, and certainly better and more original than anything that has come out of Hollywood in the last few years. Roy Scheider was good, as was Basehart. I also liked seeing Werner Klemperer, and the under rated and under appreciated Robert Reed did well too. Pernell Roberts (trapper john m.d.)also starred as one of the crooks.
