1961

From the pen of famed British adventure novelist Alistair MacLean came one of the most memorable adventure films from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Set during WWII, this literal cliff-hanger centers upon a group of saboteurs who must make their way to the top of an occupied Greek mountain and disable a pair of enormous cannons that are sinking every Allied ship, a mission with chances of survival that are infinitesimally slim. The cast was headed by a trio of superstars: Gregory Peck, David Niven and Anthony Quinn. (A young Richard Harris has a small role in the beginning.) J. Lee Thompson filmed it on location on the Greek isle of Rhodes, from a script by producer Carl Foreman.  The film received seven Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture, though it won only for its unforgettable special effects.
