For those of you not familiar with Victory, it starred Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, Max von Sydow and international soccer star Pelé. John Huston directed the original film and here’s what it’s about:
The head of a German Pow camp, soccer enthusiast Karl von Steiner (Max von Sydow) organizes a match between Nazi players and their Allied captives. Orchestrated as a way to push the Third Reich agenda, the high-profile game is set to feature an international team led by John Colby (Michael Caine), a veteran British player. While the team, which also includes Luis Fernandez (Pelé) of Trinidad, trains for the match, Robert Hatch (Sylvester Stallone) plans a dangerous mass escape from the camp.
