Format: DVD Verified Purchase
To avoild giving away this dramatic, exciting, complicated plot-driven movie staring sensational, talented actors ... I'll list points.

1. The Germans recruit a Jewish actor (Michael York) to impersonate Rommel and stash him on German-occupied island of Jersey in the sea between France and England. Unfortunately, the actor and his German controller become friends.
2. An American Colonel crashes into the sea off the Jersey coast with information that will destroy the allies plans for the D-Day invasion.
3. A reclusive British assasin (George Peppard) is brought out of retirement to kill the colonel.
4. An army nurse (Deborah Raffin) is recruited to save the life of the US colonel stashed safely away with friends of hers on Jersey. The British make it clear to the assasin that she's expendable. Will his growing love for her infect his sense of duty?
5. Sean, (who insists he's not Irish, but fights like and IRA specialist) is one of the nurse's friends and hates Germans.
6. An Italian Count (non-fascist) meets the attractive nurse on his ship sailing for Jersey to rescue the Colonel. Unfortunately, his ship sinks and they all end up on this crouded little Island filled with a bevy of characters all pretending to be someone else. The Jew is pretending to be Rommel. The Assassin is pretending to be an SS German Colonel. The nurse is pretending to be a "French Tart" attached to the British/German Colonel/assassin. The Italian Count is always an inigma -- is he really as partisan as he pretends? Is he really non-political? Is Sean Irish?

Will the nurse/French tart marry the assasin she loves and who appears to love her or will the Count who loves her convince the nurse that excitement-junkies like the assasin, George Peppard, cannot love.

Night of the Fox--the book is one of Higgin's hidden treasures--the DVD not so much Sept. 9 2011
By J. K. SHAW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Night of the Fox on DVD was a bit of a disappointment. I like George Peppard, who in his younger day would have been perfect for the part, but I had expected more. Michael York was very good with his double role, the Jewish actor/Rommel. In fact, he was better than expected. This is probably one of those times, a film based on he book would have been better. The made-for-TV film itself, although accurate to the book's intent, missed with both style and suspense. It seemed flat as many made-for-TV movies do. Commercial breaks were obvious, and if there ever was a time to cut out some dialogue, this was it. Suspense, the most crucial element was absent as well. Now, I'm willing to chalk that up to having already read the book, but the conflict, intrigue and confrontations with the enemy didn't leave anything to the imagination, which leads to suspense.

The book itself was no surprise to me in that I expect any of Jack Higgins' Word War II products to be better than those he writes of more contemporary times. The book is far superior in all the things he normally gives short shrift to--like character and plot. Even his dialogue, which is sometimes unnatural as we are told the same information again because one character has missed it, works well in the novel. Still, he tells the kinds of stories and has heroes we admire. The novel's flow is much nicer, the characters more real and believable, and the story full of twists, and the suspense breathtaking.

Not so with the film. When it was made into a TV movie/miniseries, it failed in not being nearly as good as the book, although I think with the right director and realistic casting it could have been. The pacing was deplorable. It was a sit-at-home-if-you-have-nothing-better-to-do, or you're sick in bed and can't move too much... It is ironic that you take time reading a book, but not a film. A film has generally, at a maximum, two or more hours to win you and keep you. This one is three hours (in two parts), but it still feels long.

Higgins' is always a quick read, but this novel was more for savoring. Night of the Fox is my favorite Higgins' book to date, and I think I've read most of them. The DVD was my treat to myself. I am a Peppard fan from way back, but this one truly missed the mark and won't knock your socks off. With patience, there is a good story there, but reading the book is better.

Positively dreadful - good for a laugh if you have absolutely nothing else to do Feb. 24 2010
By D. Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is an absolutely appallingly bad movie. Michael York's acting is dreadful, George Peppard begins practically every badly written speech with either a swig at a glass of some booze (probably to deaden the pain of being in this stinker), or takes a long drag on his cigarette. Deborah Raffin has no idea how to act and the Germans are cartoonish in their nastiness. The plot is silly and clearly no real money was spent on sets, costumes or props. Embarrassingly bad.

Night of the Fox Sept. 17 2013
By Bwhami - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
One of the little known facts of World War II is that the Germans did invade England, sort of. The Germans invaded the Channel Islands off the coast of France and were protectorate of British Government. The majority of the Story takes place on one of these islands and tells the story of how a small Commando force needs to rescue an Allied officer who knows the real plans for the Allied invasion of Europe.
There some twists and turns and great acting. If you enjoyed “The Eagle has Landed.” You should like ‘Night of the Fox.”
