Classic war drama.

"Nobody has ever escaped from Stalag 17. Not alive, anyway."

When people look back at the classic World War II movies there is one indisputable fact: most of them are a story about the fighting or being in the trenches. Most Hollywood WWII films are just about the combat and the drama while on the front line. The opening narration states quite clearly that no films are made about th... read more

Golden boy William Holden bagged an Oscar for his portrayal of resident entrepreneur/stool pigeon (?) in a POW camp during WWII. Entirely deserved it too, and I suppose Billy Wilder deserves most of the credit. Though not a fan of war movies, this is one of two favorite war flicks--the other being The Bridge on the River Kwai (another Holden flick, but he's not the reason I like it--Alec Guiness... read more

Since it is considered a classic, I was really eager to check this flick. Honestly, I'm not really familiar with Billy Wilder's work but I have fortunately managed to watch a few of his movies lately ('The Apartment', 'Some Like It Hot', 'The Seven Year Itch', 'Sabrina', 'Sunset Blvd.') and this movie was easily of one of his best. The first striking thing about this movie is its introduction when... read more

Description: Black comedy and suspenseful action inside a German POW camp during World War II--a setting that was later borrowed for the TV sitcom Hogan's Heroes. The great director Billy Wilder adapted the hit stage play, applying his own wicked sense of humor to the apparently bleak subject matter. William Holden plays an antisocial grouse amid ... (more)

"31.8. Billy Wilderin vankileirikomedian suurin ongelma on se, että sen huumori ei ole kovinkaan hauskaa. Parin hymähdyksen lisäksi se tarjoaa hyvin monta "eäääähhh"-hetkeä, ja lopulta huumori onnistuu laskemaan pisteitä puolikkaalla. Vakavoituessaan Stalag 17 on sitten aivan eri elokuva ja välillä se tuntuu jopa mestariteokselta. Meno paranee rutkasti loppua kohden, ja paljon typeryyksiä haluaa antaa anteeksi. Välillä vain muistaa sen, että suurin osa hahmoista puhuu rasittavalla"

"Olen aina ollut hulluna vankileirielokuviin, ja Stalag 17 taitaa olla niiden kaikkien esi-isä. Tai ainakin filmi joka asetti standardit muille sen jälkeen tehdyille. Wilder osoittaa jälleen olevansa yksi parhaista. Elokuvassa on kohdallaan lähes kaikki hahmoista dialogiin ja huumorikaan ei mene missään vaiheessa yli. Holden on vitun hyvä."
