Danger Within

Danger Within concerns the attempt by British prisoners of war to escape but realise that one of their number is a German spy. There is a powerful cast with Richard Todd as the Colonel senior officer, with Richard Attenborough Donald Houston, Michael Wilding, Bernard Lee, Dennis Price, Peter Jones, Michael Caine, Vincent Ball, Andrew Faulds and Terence Alexander are all part of this stellar cast. The camp is run by Italians but is to be taken over by the Germans following the armistice between Italy and the allies. There is a race against time to find he informer and get the prisoners away. As with many similar films there are issues about the use of tunnels and the action takes place against a theatrical production, in this instance Hamlet rather than the usual concert party. The venture is successful. The film is based on a novel.
