--For some reason I never got the word I'd guessed the answer to the quiz here. Please accept my apologies.

--This film is considered one of the 100 best films ever made. The story is built in part around WW I prisoners of war and their interaction with the German prison commandant, whose hobby is growing a plant. Name the film.

--And if you've never seen it, try to, because it's superb.

Dear MW,
What film involves a group of patients at a British military hospital near the coast of England which is being shelled from across the channel by a German rail gun and the patients break out to silence the gun.

Brian Ross wrote:Burton played in many WWII movies - how about one with an Australian "flavour" - "The Desert Rats"?

OK, as I assume I got the answer right, here is my question:

This actor spent part of WWII as a "kriegie" and appeared in a movie as a POW escapee and its sequel as a guard. He had, at the time of his death over 500 film credits to his name, making him perhaps the most prolific actor in movies. Who was he and what was the movie?
Burton's character, MacRoberts, was an English officer in charge of mixed Anglo/Aussie unit in "The Desert Rats".
