Heroes Of Telemark, The
The legendary Kirk Douglas reteamed with revered director Anthony Mann (El Cid) for this pulse-pounding adventure in the vein of The Guns Of Navarone. In a secret Norwegian laboratory, the Nazis are developing "heavy water," which is critical for making a nuclear weapon. Physicisy Rolf (Douglas) leads a small team of commandos into the country to destroy the lab before it's too late. Filmed on location in the dead of winter, with splendid support from Richard Harris and Michael Redgrave, and presented on DVD for the first time and in its original aspect ratio, there's no lack of suspense or action in this based-on-a-true-story thriller, one of Kirk's all-time finest!
