an interesting movie with some very good scenes. However, some were almost unwatchable because the quality of the transferring to dvd was very poor. Still, a worth watching movie for WW2 buffs.

Wonderful film IF they fixed the audio! Did they???

"This is an excellent film! Or well SHOULD be anyway! In the past however, reviewers would not stop railing on the very poor audio quality ... truly was about the worst I've heard on a fairly modern film. But now I don't see mention of that? Did someone manage to dig up a better copy to master from? Or did the audio benefit from some digital wizardry or what? The copy I have is as near to unwatchable as something can get and if were not such a good film there is no way I would have suffered it more than 1/2 way through. As I recall the copy I have does not even have close caption option which would have sincerely helped! But is there a decent copy these days? If so what is the sku# or ISB or whatever will clearly separate it from one of the old rotten sounding ones? I'm hoping one that says "Digitally Remastered" although if that involves significant expense it's hard to believe it's rights owners would think it worthwhile! But of course I'm one that would buy a copy! t"
One of O'Toole's best

"This movie is near the top of the list of the best movies I've ever seen. After attempting to assasinate Hitler when England was still trying to make nice with the Fuehrer, O'Toole is on his own, persona non grata with the British establishment. The Germans come after him in England itself, and O'Toole is forced to take cover in his own land. O'Toole is the epitome of British nobility, resourceful, sarcastic, cool as ice. The film ending is a bit sanctimonious and slightly disappointing, with O'Toole pictured as being ready to sacrifice himself because he is so torn by the loss of his beloved. Overall, a terrific movie."
Great film - poor print

"Get this one for O'Toole in one of his more obscure roles. He chews the scenery, but in the delightful way that only he can.
Only gave it four stars as the print is spotty at best.
