The One That Got Away (1957)
"Taut, absorbing and tingling" (The New York Times), this thrilling true-life account follows a defiant pilot whose incredible determination and relentless courage gave him the power to evade his captors and make his way back to his homeland. This "tension-packed" (Mirror-News), gripping adventure thriller tells the true story of the only British P.O.W. who got away.
Lieutenant Franz von Werra (Hardy Kruger) is a haughty Luftwaffe flyboy who prides himself on being the best. When his plant is shot down over British airspace, he becomes a prisoner of war. Determined to escape, he twice plots his way out of imprisonment only to be captured again and again. He is finally sent to an icy-cold Canadian wasteland where he escapes again, hops a train and heads for the United States - a neutral nation at the time, and one more stepping stone in his amazing journey back home!
