Ill Met by Moonlight (1957) – (Night Ambush)

Directors: Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger

Role: Major Patrick Leigh Fermor

Dirk plays Major Patrick Leigh Fermor, aka Philedem, on the Island of Crete in this Powell and Pressburger WWII film based on the true story of the kidnapping of General Heinrich Kreipe. Another chance to see the Bogarde comic touch, this time as the unwilling patient in a dentist’s chair.
