- The Night of the Generals review by Steve Mason
A prostitute is killed in Nazi occupied Warsaw. One of three high ranking Generals is responsible...
A dud, all the more disappointing in that it was directed by the respected Anatole Litvak. An international cast competes to deliver the most misjudged performance; Tom Courtney wins for his cowardly, diffident womaniser.
With particularly poor script and editing, this unfocused film is way too long, and not quite weird enough to be fun.

O'Toole at his best
- The Night of the Generals review by Pete W
Thriller which sets the hunt for a serial killer against the background of the bomb plot against Hitler and post war neo Nazism. O'Toole plays a suitably unhinged German general who is a fanatical supporter of Hitler - but is he the killer? Good support from a range of British actors with only Omar Sharif slightly miscast as a German intelligence officer.
