Again, considering that he was a PoW, I would have thought that he would have had bigger concerns than whether his penis (the biggest in the camp - thanks for the constant reminder 🙄) still worked 🤷🏼‍♀️ I am a big fan of love stories and there are far too few being produced,” said Goldmann. “This film has all the elements of a great classic and incredibly it is a true story about an amazing man and woman. We are all incredibly excited to bring their story to the screen.” Tangles' Animated Film Based On Sarah Leavitt's Alzheimer's-Themed Graphic Novel In Works From Monarch Media, Point Grey Pictures, Lylas Pictures & Giant Ant Horace's war didn't last long. . . On 25 May 1940 he was taken prisoner and so began the harrowing journey to a prisoner-of-war camp in Poland. Those who survived the gruelling ten-week march to the camp were left broken and exhausted, all chance of escape seemingly extinguished. Horace was a sexually driven man, from his accounts, I believe he loved to love and be loved. To remove this characteristic from the plot line and character of Horace would’ve been dehumanising for him, as it is an essential component of the book. Horace himself doesn’t sound much like a contemporary “hero” or even a gentleman in many cases, his lust for sex is clear and these scenes are vivid and descriptive.

This is billed as a memoir. The author claims he’s only telling the story of Horace Greasley. At times I didn’t get that feeling especially when conversations took place with their captors. I was also trying to figure out if this is a story about a Englishman who is captured in France or an attempt at pornography. The lines truly become blurred.

Then there was the constant placing of the author at the centre of some heroic piece or other. 200 escapes? Really? Horace Greasley escaped over 200 times from a notorious German prison camp to see the girl he loved. This is his incredible true story.

In the world of literature, I think it’s safe to say we’ve gone pretty deep in terms of memoirs from the Second World War, in the sense we got many different approaches and outlooks on various aspects of this historical period. Nobody Had Seen Him [Charlie Cavendish] Leave; He’d Simply Disappeared During The Night. He Was Never Seen Again. He Had Given His Life Voluntarily To Save His Friends And Comrades” - Just One Of The Ordinary Hero’s Who Helped Defeat The Nazi’s. I didn't like the way it was written, it felt juvenile and very clunky and there were SO MANY typos 🤦🏼‍♀️

What a shame that the original teller of this story seems to have added in an abundance of far-fetched embellishments to what could otherwise have been an interesting and compelling account of his life as a POW.
