NO STORY TOPS THAT OF OUR P.W.'S IN
THE STAGE TRIUMPH THAT ROCKED THE NATION FOR THREE SOLID YEARS!
STALAG 17 WAS RIGHT ACROSS THE WAY FROM THE RUSSIAN WOMEN'S COMPOUND.
The screen's salute to those boisterous, roisterous, Prisoners of War... who fought back with their secret weapon, laughter... battling barbed wire with barbed wit, and machine guns with monkeyshines.
It's a story of men of fighting spirit, living under brutal conditions, who never stopped trying to break out of ''the camp that no one ever escaped from.'' Stalag 17 will make you laugh, cry and cheer!
