The Wooden Horse

Movies, Drama
Solid retelling of one of WWII's most audacious and enduring escape stories as Genn, Tomlinson and Steel tunnel under a vaulting horse to escape Nazi captivity in Stalag Luft III and head for neutral Sweden courtesy of fake passports. Detailed handling gives a good idea of the men's ingenuity and courage in this dignified, reasonably tense Britflick.
