The Secret War of Harry Frigg (1968) DVD Region One 110 min. Color
Starring: Paul Newman, Sylva Koscina, Andrew Duggan, Tom Bosley and John Williams
Starring Paul Newman in one of his rare comedy roles, ‘The Secret War of Harry Frigg’ tells the story of a good-for-nothing goldbrick whose only talent is escaping from the Army stockade. Sent behind enemy lines to free five Allied generals held prisoner in an Italian villa, Harry Frigg (Newman) -hardly the dedicated type - becomes sidetracked from his zany mission by a sexy Italian Contessa. He finally uses his talent to escape, and his new rank of Major General to create havoc in this wild, wacky and brilliantly satirical tale of World War II.
“It's not who you con. It's how you do it.” – Harry Frigg
“The Secret War of Harry Frigg is an amusing World War II comedy starring Paul Newman as a dumb army private sent to rescue five Axis-held Allied generals. Strong story premise, excellent supporting cast…” – The Hollywood Reporter
