Forget Indiana Jones. This 1965 high adventure stars Frank Sinatra as the leader of a mass escape from a World War II POW camp in Italy. That mission accomplished, Old Blue Eyes has sundry adventures camouflaging the freed men as German soldiers, trying to fool the Gestapo, and finally doing battle with enemy planes and ground troops while trying to get a hijacked train through a blocked tunnel. Sinatra is in great form and director Mark Robson handles the endless chain of action set-pieces with panache. A great pulse-quickener. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sinatra Adventure May 22 2003
Format:DVD
Von Ryan's Express is an excellent war adventure set in Italy during WWII. The movie is about a group of prisoners attempting to escape to freedom by taking over the train they are being transported on. They are led by a man they hate, US Air Force Colonel Joseph Ryan, because of the way things happened in the past prison camp. This is a very exciting movie with plenty of action and also a unique story out of World War II. As well, the conclusion is one of the best endings to a war movie ever. Trevor Howard's line is the perfect capper.
This movie boasts an excellent cast to go along with fine storytelling and action. Frank Sinatra is very good as Colonel Ryan with Trevor Howard also great as his second in command British Major Fincham. Also joining them are Brad Dexter, Sergio Fantoni, John Leyton, Edward Mulhare as Father Costanza in a very funny role, and Wolfgang Preiss in another role as an arrogant German officer. This is a very good movie with an impressive cast alongside a good story. Excellent musical score by Jerry Goldsmith also. The DVD gives a widescreen presentation, remastered stereo, and also theatrical trailers from several movies including this one. A worthwhile movie for Sinatra fans and action fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun movie Nov. 20 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this is a good movie and Frank Sinatra plays a good performance. The ending was apparently changed on his request and I think he was right to end the movie that way. The suspense is kept up right up to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank Sinatra doesn't sing in this one. Oct. 11 2013
By Big Bill TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite WW II movies , along with Kelly's Heros . Frank Sinatra is a good actor in this one , and is the hero.
He is an American airplane pilot that is shot down in Italy. Kudos to the Italians ; they protect him from Germans that
would have shot him on sight , and deliver him to a prison camp. By coincidence the senior allied commander has
recently died in the hotbox and Frank finds himself in command. The War is almost over , and he knows it , so he's not if favour of
the escape plans already underway. This makes him VERY unpopular. At one point the Italian prison guards hear how the wind is blowing , and split during the night. The whole prison camp tries to march towards the sea , but are captured by a German patrol,
who are not ready to surrender. They put the prisoners on a train and intend to move them into Germany. The prisoners take
over the train and con their way to freedom. Great fun , have watched it many times on TV. Now can watch whenever I want.
Of note : this movie boasts the largest all male nude scene of all time , but don't worry , the plot requires it and
the camera shot is so ,long you won't see a thing!

I like action of this older movie and the stars from years gone by.
Also, a bit of humour mixed in with the seriousness.
