A review by John Chard

By John Chard

Biffo - Bammo - Boffo!

A team of army specialists are assembled with the task of infiltrating a German held Greek island. Then they have to destroy the mighty twin guns up in the hills that blight the British operations on the Aegean waters.

Adapted from the Alistair MacLean novel, it's directed by J. Lee Thompson and stars Gregory Peck, David Niven, Anthony Quinn, Anthony Quayle, Stanley Baker and James Darren. Music is scored by Dimitri Tiomkin and cinematography by Oswald Morris.

Watching it now it seems oh so very formulaic, but it was rarely the norm back than for war films to... read the rest.
