As he toured war-torn Europe in 1944, a noted conductor (Charlton Heston) found himself─and his entire orchestra─waylaid by German troops. Fortunately, the Nazi C.O. (Maximilian Schell) is a classical music buff, and desirous of a command performance. With no promise that they'll live for an encore, can the trapped maestro finagle an out? Leslie Nielsen, Anton Diffring, Kathryn Hays co-star; performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. 107 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
