      One of my favorites as well. Back in '65 I wrote a fan letter to the attention of Frank Sinatra at 20th Century Fox. Some publicist sent me a pressbook and 50 press stills. Still got them, Ringo.
      Next time you watch this one, pay attention to Jerry Goldsmith's score. It isn't a long one, but the scene with the train in Rome is perfect.

      Cool story, I'm green over here :wink_smile:
      I clearly remember first seeing this all on my own on a Saturday afternoon as a kid, folks must have locked me in with the TV to keep me quiet lol, and it's remained one of my faves to this day.

      Goldsmith is my favourite film composer, I don't feel anyone can touch him with his breadth of musical styles.

      Nice story and will do Bill ;-)) I always liked the theme music to it. Also, you dont se but 1-2 movies that also features a twin engined Mustang--one of my favorite fighters of the war.
