| Brilliant WW2 Brit Caper
People watching this film expecting a serious WW2 film will be disappointed. This wee film is pretty much rooted in the essence of good British Humor. The story is based on a biography of the real life Charlie Coward, played nicely by the "Idle of the Odeon" Dirk Bogarde and plays out like separate chapters of his story during WW2 spending most of his time irritating the guards.

When is comes to POW films I always go for "The Colditz Story" as the greatest and this is the light hearted side order.

Good fun.
