In Second World War France, German Colonel von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) orders the railway transfer of priceless works of art from the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris to the Fatherland. The French Resistance are determined to stop the cargo ever reaching Germany, and enrol railway inspector Labiche (Burt Lancaster) to help them in their cause. Franklin Coen and Frank Davis's script was nominated for an Oscar.
