This is a 1953 war film that tells the story of a group of American airmen held in a German World War II prisoner of war camp.
They come to suspect that one of their number is an informant.
Produced and directed by Billy Wilder, it was adapted from the Broadway play, which was based on the playwright's experiences as prisoner in Stalag 17B in Austria.
Along with "The Great Escape" and "The Bridge on the River Kwai," this is considered as the greatest World War II Prisoner of War film.
I think, however, this film is worse than the other two simply because it includes gratuitous comical scenes.

This B/W film from the past, by Billy Wilder, is one of the better films on the subject of POW's in WWII. A must for Wilder's fans.

I read a comment once on the internet that said "If you watch this film, you'll be a William Holden fan for life." I totally agree with that. Holden's performance is that good. Interesting how Stalag 17 served as inspiration for Stalag 13 in Hogan's Heroes.
