A battle of action and wits in a World War II prison camp where the Fuhrer's scheme for looting a treasure-laden island off Greece is under way. Prisoners of war labour under the eye of the camp's Austrian Commandment, Major Otto Hecht, as they dig up priceless Greek art. Zeno, the island's resistance leader, and his woman Eleana scheme to defeat the occupiers. Zeno and his men clash with the Germans to save the lives of condemned prisoners and try to locate a submarine oil supply depot. If the Germans are to be defeated, they must also seek and dismantle the communications equipment on Mount Athens which promises a blaze of action...

'1979' Yes the film and acting is a little dated...but...who cares..the film is full of faces fom yester-year.
Set during the second world war on a 'german' occupied 'greek' island, a group of 'resistance' fighters joined by some 'prisoners-of-war set out to over-throw the 'germans' some of the prisoners are driven by the promise of valuable relics said to be hidden in the local 'monastry'
'Roger moore' plays a 'german' major who's task it was to work the
Prisoners on a dig to find 'ancient relics'
A great cast including 'telly savalas' 'david niven' and 'sonny bono' the three sadly no longer with us.
This film is a good-romp with much tongue-in-cheek action, if your feeling nostalgic it's a good watch.
The picture quality is a little sharper than on 'dvd' also the sound has been digitaly enhanced for this format.
At this price...if you like the cast-list...worth adding to yopur 'blu-ray' collection..................enjoy.

despite what some may say this is a good attempt at the ww2 genre, with an all star international cast of solid actors.
