Movie Info

A Royal Air Force bomber with a mission to destroy a rail line crash-lands in Germany after the commanding pilot is shot. The surviving crew, led by Flight Lt. Terry Forbes (Errol Flynn) and including Johnny Hammond (Ronald Reagan) and Jed Forest (Arthur Kennedy), flee the plane as it explodes, but German soldiers capture them and place them in a prison camp. Terry's ability to speak German provides the men a way to overcome the guards and attempt a cross-country escape fraught with peril.

Audience Reviews for Desperate Journey

  • Feb 27, 2018
    With the soundtrack blaring "God Save The King" throughout the endeavor, there can be no doubt as to the propagandist intentions of this World War 2 adventure. The ever-so-glib crew, stranded in Nazi Germany and trying to get back to England, goes through some tough scrapes, but there is really never any doubt as to the outcome as our boys laugh and joke whatever the circumstance. Charisma carries the day with Flynn and Reagan doing the heavy lifting, yet ably assisted by Hale and Kennedy. Raymond Massey, cruelly underappreciated character actor, is the central heavy, and does a passable German.

    Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan star in a light hearted mix between the Dirty Dozen and Commando.
