by Roy Ward Baker (GB, 1957, 1h46, vostf)
starring Hardy Krüger, Colin Gordon, Michael Goodliffe, Terence Alexander, Jack Gwillim
During the Battle of Britain in 1940, a German fighter is forced to make an emergency landing on British soil. The pilot, Franz von Werra, a Luftwaffe flying ace, is taken prisoner. When interrogated by an officer, he reveals nothing but promises his warders that he will escape. A promise he keeps shortly afterwards. Recaptured and transferred to another camp, he determines to re-stage his exploit forthwith.
