On the Nazi occupied island of Crete, two British officers are assigned to kidnap the commanding German General and deliver him to allied forces in Cairo. Aided by local patriots, the abduction itself goes smoothly. However, the subsequent chase across the rocky Cretan landscape proves to be more problematic. Based on W. Stanley Moss's autobiographical account of the operation, this was to be the last collaboration of the motion picture team of Powell and Pressburger. Released in the U.S. as NIGHT AMBUSH, it was trimmed by its American distributor to 93 minutes. This restored DVD is the original uncut 104 minute widescreen version.
