The Guns of Navarone (movie)

Title: The Guns of Navarone

Director: J. Lee Thompson

Year, production: 1961, UK/USA

Cast: Anthony Quinn, Gregory Peck, David Niven, James Darren, Irene Papas, Stanley Baker, ...

Runtime: 158 min

The movie is based on Alistair MacLean's book "The Guns of Navarone", one of his best books. Special group (6 people, Allied and Greek soldiers) is sent to Greece which is under German occupation during Second World War. Their mission is to destroy huge German guns which protect big area of the sea and block an evacuation of British troops from islands close to the land. Guns can not be destroyed from the air.

Classic war movie. The best figure for me is Andrea played by Anthony Quinn. This movie is almost as good as the book.
