remember when war films were jolly as well as sad?By A-lad-in-a-hat (13 reviews) from Brighton , 20 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]One of the greatest war films ever made! Dickie Attenborough is at his stiff upper lipped best and Steve Mcqueen is at his coolest.
Chuck in a a bunch of nazis and a few moterbike jumps and what's not to make any true Englishman more excited then a kid in a sweetshop?
Rent this! it's the last thing the bosh would expect..
