Give me Death, or Give me... Death?!?!
A condemned French prisoner has a chance to escape the Guillotine... by turning himself in to the Gestapo and falsely confessing to being a Resistance fighter! Doesn't seem like a good deal either way, now, does it? Luckily Errol Flynn is our star, so he always has a fightin' chance.
Raoul Walsh directs this 1944 wartime suspense thriller.
