The Password Is Courage

  • Film

Time Out says

Although frequent sticklers for authenticity (they sank a real ship for The Last Voyage), writer/director Andrew Stone and his producer wife Virginia turned English villages into enemy Germany in this unexpected take on the true-life WWII heroism of a certain Sgt-Maj Coward, the scourge of Nazi PoW camps (he bartered, at one point, to save prisoners in Auschwitz). Often played for fun, it doesn't quite come off, but at least it's a variation on the usual stiff-upper-lip routine. Based on John Castle's biography of Charles Coward.
