Two worthy Academy Award® nominees from 1950's Sunset Boulevard actor William Holden and director Billy Wilder reteamed three years later for the gripping World War II drama, Stalag 17. The result was another Best Director nomination for Wilder (his fourth), and the elusive Best Actor Oscar® for Holden. Holden portrays the jaded, scheming Sergeant J.J. Sefton, a prisoner at the notorious German prison camp, who spends his days dreaming up rackets and trading with the Germans for special privileges. But when two prisoners are killed in an escape attempt, it becomes obvious that there is a spy among the prisoners. Is it Sefton? Famed producer/director Otto Preminger tackles a rare acting role as the camp's commandant; actor Robert Strauss won a Supporting Actor nomination for his role as "Animal." Here's Wilder's powerful, acclaimed film classic -- now packed with never-before-seen special features, including audio commentary and "behind-the-scenes" featurettes.
- Commentary by actors Richard Erdman and Gil Stratton and co-playwright Donald Bevan
- Stalag 17: From Reality to Screen featurette
- The Real Heroes of Stalag XVIIB featurette

Make no mistake, this is not just another war movie. "Stalag 17" is a brilliant film. A bravo performance by both Holden and his supporting cast, combined with an excellent storyline, make this a film that should not be missed. Highly recommended. RJB.
Otto Preminger is the ultimate dirty rotten scoundrel in this. Example of this is when talking to his superiors in Berlin on the phone he starts off by having his man servant put his highly polished boots on, when the phone is answered he snaps to attention, snaps his heels and salutes the nazis salute. He is the ultimate villain versus in the end and American here. Its' a classic movie worth seeing a few times just to pick up some of the nuances in the people and how they play off each other.
