Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard star in this classic war drama directed by Mark Robson.
When US pilot Colonel Joseph Ryan (Sinatra) is shot down and placed in a German prisoner of war camp, he is more concerned with his own survival than escape.
The top-ranking officer in the camp, he is initially reviled by his fellow British and American prisoners, who nickname him Von Ryan.
However, Ryan eventually comes to lead them in a daring escape attempt, taking over from the commanding British officer (Howard), and the escapees face many hazards as they commandeer a train to make their way across Italy, closely followed by the Nazis.
