Enjoy cast and production values and a very effective bot not brilliant plot hunged over a sharp cliff with a mouth and two iconic cannons. Some hard stereotypes you can forgive (hot tempered greeks Papas and Darren, btucher becomes coward and then butcher Stanley Baker, easygoing Niven faced by Peck with taking decisions) becuase they weren't too exploited then.

This was a groundbreaker in the Special Effects department, too. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best (Adapted) Sc ... (more)
