Movie Info

During World War II, German Intelligence officer Maj. Grau (Omar Sharif) investigates a prostitute's murder in Warsaw, Poland. Evidence leads Grau to three powerful Nazi generals (Charles Gray, Donald Pleasence, Peter O'Toole) who reassign Grau to Paris when they discover his investigation. While two of the generals quietly plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, the vicious Gen. Tanz remains faithful to his leader and keeps several dark secrets of his own.

    Well acted but overlong drama.

    Just superb, with Peter O'Toole (a redundant name if ever there was one, but I digress) playing a deliciously convincing psychopathic creep. Not a bad adaptation of the book by the same name by one of my favorite WWII novelists, Hans Hellmut Kirst.
