THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL (1978) SEVEN/PRIME, NOON, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Le­git­i­mate thrills and po­lit­i­cal in­trigue do not dis­ap­point as Nazi hunters (Steve Gut­ten­berg and Lau­rence Olivier) stum­ble upon a plot to res­ur­rect the Fourth Re­ich. You read cor­rectly, Gut­ten­berg ( Po­liceA­cademy) was once a se­ri­ous ac­tor. Charged with killing 94 men over a two-year pe­riod, the hunters be­come em­broiled in the Nazi regime that they have been try­ing so hard to fight. Gre­gory Peck co-stars as the in­fa­mous Dr Josef Men­gele, whose at­tempt at a Ger­man ac­cent makes it even more en­joy­able, while Olivier was rewarded with an Os­car nom­i­na­tion for his ef­forts. Also stars James Ma­son and Anne Meara. ★★★★
