    The Guns of Navarone is one of those WWII impossible mission movies that were popular in the 60s (is it the granddaddy of them all?). In the film, Gregory Peck leads a small group to a Greek island occupied by the Nazis to destroy massive guns that are keeping a rescue force from getting 2000 men out of the area. Almost immediately, things start to go wrong leading to some pleasant improvisations, hard choices, loss of life, and eventual Allied triumph. It's all pretty well done, though I don't think it gets any better than their arrival on the island in the middle of a storm. That's a LOT of water being dumped on the actors! But one thing about the era's film making that never works for me is day-for-night, and there's a lot of it. It just looks ghastly and never fails to kill my interest. Ultimately, Guns is an adventurous flick with a good cast, but the formula was bettered by several films by the early 70s. 1 week 4 days ago
