A political murder mystery set in Nazi-occupied Poland and postwar Paris, NIGHT OF THE GENERALS follows a military investigator, General Grau (Omar Sharif), on his inquiry into a prostitute's murder that has unexpectedly led him to three prime suspects (Peter O'Toole, Donald Pleasence, and Charles Gray)--all generals in the German army. Two years after the murder in Warsaw, Grau is transferred to Paris, where he confronts the man he believes to be the murderer--who is busy framing one of the other generals for the crime. When Paris detective Inspector Morand (Philippe Noiret) gets involved, more than one plot is uncovered in this tense drama that parallels World War II's mass murder with the individual actions of its participants. Director Anatole Litvak's film is based on the best-selling novel by Hans Helmut Kirst.
An intrepid military police investigator doggedly pursues a Nazi general he believes to be responsible for a particularly brutal murder. Meanwhile, the general's young aid is unjustly accused of the crime.
- The film was originally titled LA NUIT DE GÉNÉRAUX.
- NIGHT OF THE GENERALS forms part of a loosely connected trilogy of wartime suspense films that includes John Frankenheimer's THE TRAIN and Rene Clement's IS PARIS BURNING'
- Maurice Jarre composed the soundtrack for all three of the films in the loosely connected trilogy: NIGHT OF THE GENERALS, THE TRAIN, and IS PARIS BURNING'
- Donald Pleasence is famous with younger generations for his portrayal of the psychiatrist in HALLOWEEN.
