Ice Station Zebra
About Ice Station Zebra
Directed by John Sturges, an expert at action-powered epics, Ice Station Zebra is one of the last of the deluxe “roadshow” movies (it even comes with an overture and intermission). It was too square for late sixties audiences but seen now it plays like a relic from the fifties, as comfortable as an old shoe and just as unfashionable. Shrewd casting paired Hollywood icon Rock Hudson with newly minted action star Jim Brown and 60’s cult favorite Patrick McGoohan in the leads.
