Synopsis Edit

The Germans are out to get General Montgomery, so plans are laid to get him a double. But statistician Henry Crun says they'll need more than one.

Background Edit

An actor by the name of M. E. Clifton James really was recruited to impersonate Montgomery and confuse the Germans; he later wrote a book about it called I Was Monty's Double. A movie based on the book, starring John Mills (but not Richard Attenborough), was released in October 1958.
