  1. Just watched it via a torrent. Great film! ... 'EVERY FIFTH MAN!" ...

    The depiction of physical excersices and drill rings true ... Me arl-fella used to tell me about them bulling rusty tin cans from a drum of water full of same ... But did they build such punishments as the 'Hill'?
     
  2. I believe that Heiliopolis, nick outside of Cairo, had the "The Hill"
     
  3. Top film.

    8 9 10.
     
  4. Didn't deter Ghaddaffi did it now?

    It was a brave undertaking for Connery at the time having been contracted to the Bond image, to go off and do this one. Good on 'im.
