- movie Description
Stalag 17 is the 1953 comedy war drama from legendary writer-director Billy Wilder (Some Like it Hot, Sunset Boulevard, The Apartment, Double Indemnity). Adapted from a Broadway play by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski, this film is an uneasy but enjoyable mix of comedy and Steve McQueen's sections from The Great Escape. When two POW's are killed during a breakout attempt from POW camp Stalag 17, the POW's suspect that an insider is passing information out to the guards. As the guards seem to be more and more aware of the prisoner's activities the POW's turn on Sefton (Bridge on the River Kwai, Network, Sunset Boulevard), who deals regular trades with the guards. However Sefton knows he's innocent and sets about to find who the real informer is. Also featuring Peter Graves and his unmistakable voice as well as war hero Neville Brand, most notable supporting role is essayed by famed director Otto Preminger.moreless
