5.0 out of 5 stars Classic WWII POW adventure/drama, January 17, 2004
This review is from: Stalag 17 (DVD)
Stalag 17 is an excellent war movie that belongs with The Great Escape and Bridge over the River Kwai as one of the best POW movies ever made. It tells the story of Stalag 17, a POW camp full of downed pilots. When two prisoners from Barracks 4 are gunned down while trying to escape, the men in the barracks begin to think there is a stoolie in the hut who is selling information to the Germans. Problems arise when an important prisoner arrives who the Germans desperately need information from. The suspected stoolie, JJ Sefton, must try and prove that he is not the right guy. This is a great movie with plenty of drama and comedy for everyone. There are many great characters who are revealed through some very funny vignettes. For a very enjoyable movie, check out Stalag 17.
William Holden is fantastic as Sergeant JJ Sefton, the cynical prisoner who tries to make life as comfortable as possible for himself in the prison camp. It is this cynicism that makes the others think he is a stoolie. Don Taylor is also good as Lt. Dunbar, the prisoner the Germans are trying to get their hands on. Otto Preminger is excellent as Colonel von Scherbach, the commandant of the prison camp. The excellent supporting cast includes Robert Strauss as the Animal, Harvey Lembeck as Harry Shapiro, Peter Graves as Price, Richard Erdman as Hoffy, Gil Stratton as Cookie, and Neville Brand as Duke. Its too bad more couldn't have been done with this DVD since absolutely no extras are offered. The film looks great, but couldn't a trailer or something have been added. For a great POW classic, check out Stalag 17!
