Pte Peter Ustinov of the East Surrey Regiment (IIRC) - films were The Way Ahead (star, wrote) and School for Secrets (directed, wrote). Officially he is not credited with directorial duties for The Way Ahead however I have no doubt he attempted some .....

Ustinov it was and yes, it was "The Way Ahead" - which he claims he helped direct in his autobiography IIRC.

Over to you, Ned. Your turn.

Thank you sir.

The B-17 crash landing near the beginning of the movie was no special effect. Stunt pilot Paul Mantz was paid $4,500 to crash-land the bomber. Mantz, of course, walked away from the wreck. Until the 1970s, that was the largest amount ever paid to a stuntman for a single stunt.

What movie are they talking about?

Regards,

Chris

The "blonde head" is obviously David McCallum who starred alongside the actors you mentioned in "The Great Escape" but I cannot think of any other war movies he has been in apart from the obvious "Mosquito Squadron" and that's certainly not the movie arcano has chosen for us to guess.

Well, I've given everyone a little help. The blonde actor is definitely David McCallum. The movie title still remains a mystery. :oops:

Best regards.
