Synopsis

Escape to Athena (1979) box art When a group of American POWs held on a Greek island plans to escape, they get help from the crooked camp commandant (Roger Moore) -- a former antiquities dealer -- by promising him a cut of the loot they plan to boost from a local monastery. But local Greek resistance leader Zeno (Telly Savalas) has another agenda, for he knows that the monastery on the slopes of Mt. Athena houses a secret launching pad for German rockets. David Niven co-stars.
