PG | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
In 1942, a Polish prostitute and German Agent is murdered in Warsaw. Suspicion falls on three Generals, and Major Grau (Omar Sharif) of German Intelligence seeks justice which ends up taking decades.
Despite its lurid and adult storyline, this is frequently shown on afternoon television schedules.
An adequate restaurant, very clean.
In the middle of the film, General Tanz's entire Panzer Division transfers from the Regular Army to the Waffen-SS. This would never have happened in the real German military, since SS units were independently formed, trained, and never augmented with units from the Regular Army.
The opening credits are a montage of a Nazi general's clothing and decorations.
The UK cinema version was heavily edited for an 'A' (PG) certificate and removed nearly all the references to the victims being whores, as well as shortening the bed scene between Hartmann & Ulrike, the police interrogation of the suspected sex offenders, and editing some of the dialogue describing the murders. Later releases were upgraded to a 15 certificate and were fully uncut.
