Billy Wilder's 1953 tale of men in a World War II POW camp (under the command of Otto Preminger). It's chock-full of typical Wilder cynicism and the offhand transvestite humor that would reach its apotheosis in Some Like It Hot, but its wit falters as the melodramatic tension builds. The resulting letdown is terrific, but along the way there is some of the funniest men-at-loose-ends interplay that Wilder has ever put on film. With William Holden, Robert Strauss, and Peter Graves. 120 min.
