Stalag 17

Billy Wilder directs this perfect comedy about a camp of American POWs. A small group of people in this camp attempts escapes and gains prohibited possession of useful devices, but somehow they are always getting caught. They believe that there's a German spy within themselves, but who could it be? Wilder's character development in this film is seldom surpassed! This probably served as inspiration to the popular 60's sitcom, "Hogan's Heroes."
