      dave j Wednesday, July 10, 2013 (1967) Desert Commandos (original title "Attentato ai tre grandi") DUBBED SPAGHETTI WAR European production with a fictional setting which centers on a team of 5 Nazis commandos dropped to a desert to perform a mission. And that is to execute all of the world's most important leaders of the names of Winston Churchill and Roosevelt since they are supposed to have set up a meeting in Casablanca. Written and directed by well known exploitation cinema director Umberto Lenzi. Made in 1967 this film has a similar idea to the 1976 film "The Eagle Has Landed" starring Michael Caine and Donald Sutherland except that it's based on a novel written by Jack Higgins. 'Desert Commandos' is another one of those movies which prolongs the story so that it can be a two hour movie. 2 out of 4 stars Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Five German officers are sent behind Allied lines in British disguises to assassinate Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt as they meet in Morocco. They fail but this one shows just how dangerously close the outcome of WWII could have been altered. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Another entertaining account of WWII intrigue from the Italian film factory. Five Nazis engage on a secret mission to kill the Allied Big Three at a conference in Casablanca. Lenzi does help matters by portraying multi-dimensional characters and appropriate settings.
