Hell is for Heroes

Young stars Steve McQueen, Bobby Darin, Fess Parker, Harry Guardino, James Coburn, Nick Adams and Bob Newhart (in his film debut) play a hopelessly out-numbered army squad in this taut, explosive war film directed by Don Siegel ("Dirty Harry", "Escape From Alcatraz"). It's autumn 1944, and Nazi forces along the Siegfried Line have the numbers, the fortifications and the firepower to break through. And a handful of GIs have little more than a dogged determination and the ingenuity to fool the Germans into thinking they represent a great Allied Task Force. But can they make the ruse last until reinforcements finally arrive?
