Ten Seconds to Hell (1959)

A group of German prisoners of war – Eric Koertner (Jack Palance), Karl Wirtz (Jeff Chandler), Wolfgang Sulke (Wes Addy), Franz Loeffler (Robert Cornthwaite), Peter Tillig (Dave Willock) and Hans Globke (Jim Goodman) – return to Berlin at the end of WWII as part of a British Army demolition squad, disarming unexploded bombs.

They agree to pool their earnings on a basis of survivor take all.

Although Ten Seconds To Hell was produced by Hammer Films, it is possibly the most atypical Hammer film ever.

And despite being about German soldiers – and supposedly set in Berlin – there’s not a German (or German accent) in the cast!
