Otto Preminger: List of Movies, Films and TV Shows

  • Stalag 17 [1952] Stalag 17 | DVD | (10/06/2002) from £4.05  |  Saving you £8.94 (68.80%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Black comedy and suspenseful action inside a German POW camp during World War II--a setting that was later borrowed for the American TV sitcom Hogan's Heroes. The great director Billy Wilder adapted the hit stage play, applying his own wicked sense of humour to the apparently bleak subject matter. William Holden plays an antisocial grouse amid a gang of wisecracking though indomitable American prisoners. Because of his bitter cynicism, Holden is suspected by the others of being an informer to the Germans, an accusation he must deal with in his own crafty way. Holden, who had delivered a brilliant performance for Wilder in Sunset Blvd., won the 1953 Best Actor Oscar for Stalag 17. Very much his equal, however, is Otto Preminger, an accomplished director himself, who plays the strict, sneering camp commandant. --Robert Horton

  • Stalag 17 [Masters of Cinema] (Blu-ray) [1953] Stalag 17 (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (27/07/2015) from £9.69  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    William Holden and Don Taylor star in this classic Second World War drama directed by Billy Wilder. After two American prisoners are killed trying to escape from the notorious German camp Stalag 17, the blame for their betrayal falls upon the cynical, self-serving Sergeant Sefton (Holden), whose dealings with the enemy isolate him from his fellow inmates. But does Sefton's disinterest in team bonding and group morale necessarily mean he is the traitor in their midst?

  • Margin for Error & A Royal Scandal [1943] Margin for Error & A Royal Scandal | DVD | (31/03/2008) from £14.99  |  Saving you £-11.71 (-58.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Two classic Otto Preminger titles together in one package. A Royal Scandal dwells on a fictional incident in the life of Russia's Catherine The Great. This story of sexual shenanigans among royalty stars Tallulah Bankhead in a rare screen role. Also of note is a deliciously camp appearance by Vincent Price as the French Ambassador. Margin For Error stars Milton Berle as a Jewish Brooklyn policeman assigned to guard Nazi consul Karl Baumer (Otto Preminger) in pre-WWII New York.
