PG | | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A World War II adventure, involving a group of Allied POWs, Nazis, black market priceless art treasures, Greek resistance, a Greek monastery, and a secret German rocket base.
allmovie.com said that the "original British version of Escape to Athena (1979) ran one hundred twenty-five minutes; American prints were judiciously cut to one hundred one minutes, emphasizing the action content, and neutralizing the duller dialogue sequences."
At the end of the sequence where the monastery blows up, two massive expositions are seen but not heard.
Opening credits: Somewhere in the Greek Islands 1944
When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a 'A' rating. All cuts were waived in 1986 when the film was granted a 'PG' certificate for home video.
