That's right, it's "Der Stern von Afrika" from 1957.

Are you sure, this man was Björn Borg, in the uniform of the former DDR/GDR..? :o

Photos from the 1970s, Borg in uniform of the Israel IDF are known, some of them online...

The "BATTLE OF ALGIERS" is much better and more realistic. It was used as a training film in the Special Forces Operations and Intelligence qualification Course when I attended in 1982.

Excellent, ROLAND1369 !

Lost Command / Sie fürchten weder Tod noch Teufel (1966)

Wiki: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sie_fürch ... och_Teufel

I still don't understand, how Mr. Quinn could have chosen such trash, comparable to John Wayne in "The Green Berets".

1960s! :roll:


Your turn...

No.
It is supposed to be a Wehrmacht general. "tennis player" was just a joke referring to the hairdo.
So, the title of the movie is ?

Hint, a fairly recent film from a country that has reputation for making internationally reasonable succesful films but suffers a shortage of European looking actors.

The actor looks a bit like Iain Glen but can’t find anything with him in german uniform. Could the film producing “non european” country be China?
