This big-budget, big-studio espionage film is set in the last years of World War II. George Peppard, Tom Courtenay and Jeremy Kemp parachute into Germany, with orders to destroy the Nazis' rocket base at Peenemunde. Featuring Sophia Loren as the wife of the Nazi collaborator whom Peppard is pretending to be, Operation Crossbow failed badly in its first release; MGM, deciding that the title misled moviegoers into thinking that the picture was a "Robin Hood" derivation, cleared up matters by renaming the film The Great Spy Mission.~Hal Erickson
A good movie about a part of the war not often mentioned. George Peppard does a great job and Sophia Loren...wow, she looks amazing!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
overall excellent movie
although slow in few parts this is one of the better older ww2 movies. it gave little known details of new weapons that were close to being developed and deployed that could have changed the outcome of the war or certainly delayed the end of the european conflict
