    This is directed by stunt man Peter Collinson of Italian Job fame. I've not seen the film all the way through and as far as I know it's not available on DVD, but does show up on french terrestial TV from time to time.

    It is about 3 paratroopers behind enemy lines during WWII, and has no dialogue. The stunt work was by veteran UK stunt man Derek Ware. I saw him several times delivering seminars at the NFT and this film was often referred to. I remember several clips of soldiers being shot and falling down a leave strewn embankment, beautifully shot in slow motion.

    I too, would not object to seeing it in it's entirerity.
