Escape to Athena

Escape to Athena (1979)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: During the execution scene Telly Savalas uses an AK-47 assault rifle to shoot the German officers, the film is set in 1944 as stated at the beginning, but the gun wasn't in production until 1947,hence the name.

Correction: Telly's rifle in the village square ambush was a German MP44 (1944) assault rifle; the AK47 looks very similar and some say the Soviets copied the design of the earlier rifle. See Wiki.
