Why would a German guy say "miles per hour"?
The heavy use of American and British actors portraying Frenchmen and Germans (particularly Burt Lancaster, he's not even trying to put on an accent) is distracting at times, but the film is very well shot, exciting, and has some interesting themes about war. If you like Frankenheimer and Penn's other work, I highly recommend this.
Watching this pic was a well-timed preference after the news about Nazi plunder which was occurred in the public eye in these very days.
