Capsule review: ‘The Night of the Generals’ (1967)


A shocking murder, a plot to assassinate Hitler (Operation Valkyrie – which Tom Cruise made a movie out of) and excellent performances from 4 legendary actors (Peter O’Toole, Omar Sharif, Donald Pleasence and Christopher Plummer in a cameo) plus some notable names from French cinema. All this combined with the massive scale of a historical epic. An overlooked thriller of Shakespearean proportions.
