Stalag 17

Lacey and I watched Stalag 17 over the past couple of nights. It's about 60% a good movie. The stuff with William Holden and the mystery in the barracks is really compelling. Nice riveting stuff, and the resolution of who's really the stoolie is well done. But the broad overacting in the comedy bits is really really insufferable and almost ruins the film. I much prefer the "subtle" comedy in Hogan's Heroes, which obviously copped a lot from Stalag. That's not all that flattering of a comparison.
