The Guns of Navarone is a World War II action film directed by J. Lee Thompson and based on the bestselling novel written by Alistair MacLean (Where Eagles Dare, When Eight Bells Toll).The film stars Gregory Peck and David Niven as British commandos who lead a mission to destroy a pair of deadly German batteries before they can devastate an Allied naval convoy. Jensen definitely would not have approved of this jubilation.
