The Birdmen

Escape of the Birdmen

1971

Philip Leacock
Director

Exciting World War II story of allied prisoners in a supposedly escape-proof POW camp high in a castle (a la Colditz) who build a glider in the hopes of flying out a scientist masquerading as one of the prisoners, before the Germans find his true identity and get him to work for them. Also known simply as "The Birdmen."
