-- One of the best of the 60's action-dramas centered on World War II,
"Von Ryan's Express" compares well to similar films such as "Where Eagles
Dare", "The Dirty Dozen" and "The Bridge at Remagen" (among many others).

-- While a lot of effort was put into making extras for the DVD release,
the film itself is not restored; it's slightly fuzzy, hasn't been cleaned
of dirt, hairs and scratches, and has English hard-subs for Nazi dialogue.
