The One That Got Away (1957)

Frank Williams,Hardy Krüger
The exploits of Franz von Werra early during WWII are dramatized. A German Luftwaffe pilot, he, shot down, is forced to make an emergency landing in Kent, England on September 5th, 1940, he captured by the British authorities who are aware of his celebrated status at home for his military efforts. Partly a result of how he is interrogated and partly believing it his duty as a German officer, von Werra is determined not only to escape but to make it back to Germany so that he can report back what he's learned to assist further in the German war effort. After the first such attempt, the British make it harder and harder for von Werra to escape, which only makes him more determined and more brazen in his actions to accomplish his goal.—Huggo
