Stalag 17 Movie Review Summary

Actors: Peter Graves, William Holden, Otto Preminger, Robert Strauss, Harvey Lembeck

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Stalag 17

This is the story of American prisoners of war in World War II. Ostensibly the story is about finding a spy who is reporting on their activities to the Germans, but most of the movies shows the prisoners acting silly (in a stupid way), or effeminite, such as when the prisoners dress up as women and dance with each other. It is a very slow movie with only a bit of suspense at the very end when they find the spy.
