    Synopsis:
    Ol` Blue-Eyes, Frank Sinatra, leads the line-up in this classic World War 2 epic, with not a song in sight. He portrays Colonel Joseph Ryan, an American POW charged with leading a dangerous escape attempt from a German camp in Italy. Nicknamed `Von Ryan` for his initial concessions to the jailers, his hardest task may be to win the support of the mainly British soldiers under his command. In the shadow of the beautiful Italian Alps, Ryan takes control of a train and heads for Switzerland with the Germans in hot pursuit. Adapted from a best-selling novel and featuring a strong multi-national cast, Von Ryan`s Express is suspenseful and action-packed, with spectacular special effects.
