Movie Info

When seven German prisoners in a Nazi concentration camp manage to escape, the Gestapo embarks on a mission to recapture and crucify all of the fugitives. Only George Heisler (Spencer Tracy) manages to elude the persistent Nazis, but he is met with indifference or hostility in his efforts to hide. Fortunately, he runs across the kind Madame Marelli (Agnes Moorehead) and family man Paul Roeder (Hume Cronyn), and with their help, he mounts a desperate bid for permanent freedom.

  • If you will accept this premise, despite the evidence of recent deeds, then you should be both moved and shaken by the better part of this film.

  • With Tracy heading the cast and a host of great character actors in support, it's hardly surprising that the performances are the most memorable aspect of Zinnemann's first major feature.

  • Spencer Tracy's sincere performance in this intense drama about the current war is deeply moving. [Full review in Spanish]

    September 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • One of the best of the swarms of anti-Nazi films Hollywood produced during the war years.

    November 1, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Spencer Tracy, usually solid, is miscast as a German who escapes from concentration camp, but then the whole saga is fake, compared to Zinnemann's later works.
