One of my favorites
on March 26, 2016
Not the best movie Paul Newman ever made, but my favorite because the story speaks to me.
Paul Newman plays a born loser (which takes some acting chops, if you ask me) who must impersonate a general to break some real generals out of an Italian prison, which turns out to be more like a five star hotel than a POW camp.
The story starts out as a light comedy but changes into a serious prison escape story near the end. This is the best part of the movie, just about perfect in my opinion.
This is a no frills DVD with no extras, but that's OK.
