Since 2009, Cinema Retro has had many requests to republish Movie Classics Special Issue #1 dedicated to this great WWII adventure. In response, here is an updated and expanded version of that classic issue. The original may be a prized collector?s item but, inside these pages, readers will find the original issue slightly changed with the addition of many new, rare photographs plus new features that were not available to the publisher until now.
Topping it all off is an exclusive new interview with the film's director, Brian G. Hutton, plus an abundance of rarities just unearthed including another deleted sequence and original studio memos from the producer Elliottt Kastner?s family files that shed light on who was supposed to star in the film (you won't believe it!).
