Escape to Athena

1979

George Pan Cosmatos
Director

WWII thriller concerning prison escapes, protection of Greek antiquities and the destruction of V2 rockets. Quite fun with Roger Moore playing a Nazi with redeeming features. Atmosphere is a bit shaky, Savalas and Gould particularly are in a film set in 1979, not 1944. Nice scenary too.
