GUNS OF NAVARONE

“It is easy to see how Guns of Navarone remains one of the great all time classics, with a simply splendid cast, headed by the incomparable Gregory Peck, who is the epitome of integrity, decency and manhood. Anthony Quinn stands out in a role that marries complexity with an emotional journey. This is a statisfying adventure with a beguiling set up, action and heroes. It is a film that can be enjoyed time and time again – a good plot, characters and a star cast always win the battle.”
Louise Keller

“This is one of the great war movies, partly because it is based on fact, which always adds an element of emotional leverage, partly because it’s so damn well written, performed and shot. Although it is primarily an action adventure of derring do and all that sort of boys’ own stuff, the humanity of the people and the enormous odds make it a heroic subject. It hasn’t dated yet – and probably never will.”
Andrew L. Urban
