The huge success of this film ushered in a slew of WWII movies in the 60's & 70's wherein you had a ragtag bunch of misfit soldiers out to foil some nefarious Nazi plot to take over the world. A classy cast of Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Anthony Quinn must destroy two huge satellite guided cannons to save a key Allied island stronghold in the Greek isles. Ficticious claptrap? Yes. Entertaining? You betcha. Throw in Italian beauty Gia Scala and scene chewer Irene Pappas and you've got a winner.
