Night of the Fox on DVD was a bit of a disappointment. I like George Peppard, who in his younger day would have been perfect for the part, but I had expected more. Michael York was very good with his double role, the Jewish actor/Rommel. In fact, he was better than expected. This is probably one of those times, a film based on he book would have been better. The made-for-TV film itself, although accurate to the book's intent, missed with both style and suspense. It seemed flat as many made-for-TV movies do. Commercial breaks were obvious, and if there ever was a time to cut out some dialogue, this was it. Suspense, the most crucial element was absent as well. Now, I'm willing to chalk that up to having already read the book, but the conflict, intrigue and confrontations with the enemy didn't leave anything to the imagination, which leads to suspense.

The book itself was no surprise to me in that I expect any of Jack Higgins' Word War II products to be better than those he writes of more contemporary times. The book is far superior in all the things he normally gives short shrift to--like character and plot. Even his dialogue, which is sometimes unnatural as we are told the same information again because one character has missed it, works well in the novel. Still, he tells the kinds of stories and has heroes we admire. The novel's flow is much nicer, the characters more real and believable, and the story full of twists, and the suspense breathtaking.

Not so with the film. When it was made into a TV movie/miniseries, it failed in not being nearly as good as the book, although I think with the right director and realistic casting it could have been. The pacing was deplorable. It was a sit-at-home-if-you-have-nothing-better-to-do, or you're sick in bed and can't move too much...

This is an absolutely appallingly bad movie. Michael York's acting is dreadful, George Peppard begins practically every badly written speech with either a swig at a glass of some booze (probably to deaden the pain of being in this stinker), or takes a long drag on his cigarette. Deborah Raffin has no idea how to act and the Germans are cartoonish in their nastiness. The plot is silly and clearly no real money was spent on sets, costumes or props. Embarrassingly bad.

One of the little known facts of World War II is that the Germans did invade England, sort of. The Germans invaded the Channel Islands off the coast of France and were protectorate of British Government. The majority of the Story takes place on one of these islands and tells the story of how a small Commando force needs to rescue an Allied officer who knows the real plans for the Allied invasion of Europe.
There some twists and turns and great acting. If you enjoyed “The Eagle has Landed.” You should like ‘Night of the Fox.”

Nothing works here in Night of the Fox, a ridiculously overlong and undernourished affair. The scripting, particularly the dialogue, is frequently laughable; the direction is flat, uninspired, and off in its pacing, and the performances are sub-par, at best. I suppose serious WWII action fans will want to check it out with a rental, just to complete their "I've seen that," list, but all others can safely skip Night of the Fox.
