NotesB/W. Classic POW film in which Holden is suspected of being a German stoolie. Some good acting especially from Holden. One of the POWs has lost part of a leg and smuggles various items in the empty space of his trousers. In the film his character is called Steve but in the credits he's "The Crutch". He's played by a disabled 'non-actor' called Jerry Singer. From the play by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trczinski
