Frank Sinatra is one of my favorite movie stars,not music star,movie star.i had the regular dvd for some time and have watched it several times over the years.the blu-ray version i just watched enhanced the viewing pleasure with a more crisp picture and sound.this movie has been waiting for the blu-ray reissue and it delivers.

This flick is a little known suspenseful WW II action movie from the 60's. I would say it ranks below the two greatest classic WW 2 prisoner of war films, "The Great Escape"and "Bridge On The River Kwai", but It's still one of the very best of the genre and my absolute favorite film starring Frank Sinatra. Within a minute after his entrance to the film, you'll forget he was ever a singer and completely accept him as a brash P-38 fighter pilot., ,
The plot moves quickly and the suspense and action don't let up. I purchased the DVD years ago and the Blu ray is definitely worth the upgrade in picture and audio performance if you have a high def flat screen. Highly recommended.

This is one of the Best WWII escape flicks of the 1960's and is loosely based on a true story. Sinatra plays an Army air corp pilot who gets shot down over Italy and ends up in an Italian POW camp that is populated by Mostly Elite British forces (Royal Scottish Fusiliers) and a handful of American GI's. He realizes he is out classed and refuses to take the position of Senior officer. He eventually asserts his authority with mixed results. His inexperience and bad judgement calls have lasting and deadly consequences. The plot is wonderful if improbable but it works because something like this did happen. The acting is first rate and the production values were tremendous. The scenery is fantastic as is the sound track. If you liked The Great Escape I can pretty much guarantee you will like this. By the way the transfer looks awesome on The Blu-Ray. The sound is also very good. There are also some very nice extras on this that shed some interesting light on the movie production,the history of the real event and some interesting things about Sinatra too. Highly recommended.

I have always loved and owned this movie from Beta, VHS, DVD and now BLU-Ray. Part of my bias is that I love movies revolving around trains, particularly during war. Another such classic is "The Train" starring Burt Lancaster. I digress. This movie should have been as good as it is....it had a 'cast of millions'....lead by Frank Sinatra, Trevor Howard and lots of other 1st class British actors. It revolves around the escape from and Italian POW camp for British soldiers, whose commanding officer dies. An American Airforce Colonel (Sinatra) arrives at the camp on the day of the funeral, and because of rank , assumes command. Conflict between military ideals and histories ensues. The camp is abandoned and they escape, are caught and loaded onto a train by the Germans. They steal it. Buy the movie to see the whole story and the ending. Made a lot of years ago, it has however been transferred to Blu-Ray format seamlessly with DTS 5.1 HD sound. Well worth the up-grade.

There are few films that I will watch more than once. This is one of them. Now I must admit I have a bias towards this genre. This film is exciting from start to finish and tells a plausible story. If you are into this genre or like a good action film than this is it. It has heart.
Re BluRay. I note some people have responded that the transfer is not that good. I would like to know more about this before I would consider buying the BluRay version.

Unfortunately, this Blu-Ray release appears to be an un-restored transfer. The color balance is off in many places (bright yellow-greens and purples in places where it should be white or brown). My guess that there either wasn't a good dup negative, or they just didn't bother to find one.

I gave it 3 stars for the content of this good WWII movie, but the technical rating is no more than 2 stars. It's surprising that with Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard, that Fox didn't bother to do this film right as it should be.

One of Sinatra's best, and an intriguing war drama. The Blu-ray presentation is the best in picture and sound than ever before. Everything about this film is first class. And, the story behind the movie is just as fascinating. A must for the cinefile library.

I am comparing the Blu-Ray and DVD version, and sadly the quality in Blu-ray is slightly better than DVD version. Was expecting better quality.
