Facts about

The cast features 3 stars who had UK chart hits. Frank Sinatra, John Leyton and Raffaella CarrĂ  (who charted in 1978 with "Do It, Do It Again").
Average Shot Length = ~5.3 seconds. Median Shot Length = ~5.4 seconds.
Frank Sinatra mandated that this movie's ending be changed and subsequently this destroyed any possibility of a sequel that the 20th Century Fox studio was considering. In the original ending which appears in the source novel, Ryan is not killed as with the film's ending, he survives and with the other escaped POWs, is able to get to neutral Switzerland. This ending would have allowed Ryan, the movie's central character, to appear in a sequel. Sinatra wished for his character to be killed off to add a token of believability to the movie as well as for there to be redemption for the death of the female character Gabriella.
