The Last Chance ★★★ 1945

A realistic look at the efforts of three WWII Allied officers to help a group of refugees escape across the Alps from Italy to Switzerland. The officers are played by former pilots who were shot down over Switzerland. In spite of this—or perhaps because it—the acting is superb. Watch for inspirational scene of refugees singing. 105m/B VHS, DVD . E.G. Morrison, John Hoy, Ray Reagan, Odeardo Mosini, Sigfrit Steiner, Emil Gerber; D: Leopold Lindtberg.
