Stalag 17 4K 11/07/23
William Holden earned his Best Actor Oscar as J.J. Sefton, a POW who runs the rackets in the prisoners’ barracks, and whose cynical opportunism attracts the hatred of his fellow prisoners. Suspected as a traitor collaborating with the Germans, Sefton doesn’t hide his contempt for his comrades. Adapting this Broadway hit was a career-saver for Billy Wilder, who goes all out with the burlesque antics AND the grim reality of captivity. Comedy highlights include Otto Preminger’s turn as the Camp Commandant and the lowbrow clowning of Harvey Lembeck and Robert Strauss. It joins Paramount’s proud roster of top titles, newly remastered in 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
