    Yes, it is the team that kidnapped General Heinrich Kreipe and they are George Tyrakis, William Stanley Moss, Leigh Fermor, Manolis Paterakis, Leonidas Papaleonidas.

    The film is based on the book by W S Moss, though I thought the film was better than the book.

    Theres one that I bet a lot of people have'nt seen , if ever "The bells go down", its about British firemen during the Blitz, with of all people Tommy Trinder who was a wartime comic but playing a relatively straight part, others include James Mason, Mervyn Johns,William Hartnell, Finlay Currie, made in 1943 but referencing the beginning of the Blitz

    Not seen that one Dave. A favorite of mine which I think is also not well known is "Went the day well" made during the war and about a village attacked by German troops disguised as allied forces, and part of the plot was later reused in the "eagle has landed".

    Went the day well is full of plucky brits fighting off the horrid nazis, an absolute classic and very uplifting and positive.

    I watched carve her name with pride recently, which is a great and very moving film. Colditz story, dambusters, dunkirk, the wooden horse, there are just so many great B&W war movies made during and after the war, many hours of pleasure for all IMO.
